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's founder Colin Chapman's minimalist
steel backbone chassis that was first used in the Lotus Elan 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 . he 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. YYP 488H 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.
