The Lotus Europa is a two door mid-engined GT coupé manufactured
from 1966 to 1975. In 2006 Lotus began production of a totally new. br/>Lotus Elise-derived design. a mid-engined GT coupé named Europa S.
The original Europa used Lotus founder Colin Chapman's minimalist
steel backbone chassis that was first used in the Lotus Elan. br/>whilst also relying on fibreglass moulded body for structural
strength. The Europa was based on a prototype built to compete for
Henry Ford II's contract to build a Le Mans racer in the early
1960's. The four-wheel independent suspension was typical of
Chapman's thinking as the rear suspension was a modified Chapman
strut and was used for his early Formula racing car designs. The
forward radius arms were increased in size and rigidity. to act as
a semi-wishbone. The car's handling prompted automotive writers to
describe the Europa as the nearest thing to a Formula car for the
road.

This 1970 Lotus Europa S2 has only had two owners from new with
the vendor purchasing it in 1978. In the 1980's the car was the
subject to a complete restoration including repainting the car in
the original Lotus F1 'Gold Leaf cigarette' colours of red over
white with gold pin stripping. This Lotus Europa is in excellent
running condition and has been fully maintained throughout its
life. YYP488H is supplied with a V5C registration document. an MoT
test certificate which expires in April 2015 and a very
comprehensive history file which includes photographs of the
restoration. Lotus cars are extremely undervalued considering the
racing pedigree that they come from but we are sure that this will
be addressed in the years to come. which could make this a very
good investment for the future.
