This Lotus Europa S2 Type 65 was acquired by an elderly experienced classic car restorer in 2018 with the intention of restoring it to his usual superb standard.

Since then, a large amount of the restoration has been completed.

The body has been fully restored and fitted with a full Lotus roll cage. It was fitted with new brass door hinges and one piece polycarbonate windows bought from the Europa specialists, Banks Europa Engineering.

The underside, the floors and under the wheel arches have been refurbished and painted in Anthracite Grey. The body was then repainted in two pack Olympic Blue.

The wiring harness was removed, checked over and new connectors fitted where needed before being refitted into the car along with a new fuse box and new switches.

New bucket seats have been fitted along with new lap belts. The original seats that require refurbishing are included in the sale and can be seen in the photos below.

The brakes were overhauled with new back plates, shoes and wheel cylinders fitted on the rear, a new master cylinder and reservoir have been fitted and the front brake calipers were reconditioned. New copper brake pipes and Aero-quip style flexible pipes were also fitted.

Spax adjustable shock absorbers, upgraded wheel studs and nuts, new split rim alloys and new tyres have been fitted.

At the front the car benefits from a new alloy radiator and fan.

Under the rear engine cover we can see that the engine, a federal spec Renault engine, has a new water pump, new electric fuel pump and fuel pressure regulator.

We have had the engine running and the car moves about our site under its own power without any obvious problem.

Unfortunately the elderly gentleman has not been able to complete the restoration due to ill health so the car is now for sale to a new owner who can complete the work.

Prospective buyers are welcome to come and view the car by appointment in our Leeds showroom.
