Technical specifications, photos and description:
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 whilst
also relying on a 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; the rear suspension was a modified Chapman strut as used
for his early Formula racing car designs. The forward radius arms
were increased in size and rigidity to act as a semi-wishbone and
the car's handling prompted automotive writers to describe the
Europa as the nearest thing to a Formula car for the road.
An iconic car from the 1960's. this Lotus Europa is finished in
yellow with a contrasting black/white interior. Described by the
vendor as driving well. DOY92J would possibly benefit from a little
time and investment. Supplied with a V5 registration document and
an MoT test certificate (with no advisories) valid until 30th
August 2014. it represents one of the few cars that looks better
today than when it was built 43 years ago and is sure to attract
attention wherever she goes. Very realistically estimated. it is
increasingly hard to find such a striking sportscar.
