A Midship Wonder
The Lotus Europa debuted in 1966, showcasing what was then a revolutionary midship layout, with a lightweight FRP body, making a global splash. In 1972 perhaps the finest model in the series was released, with a 126hp 1.6-liter inline-4 engine, optional 5-speed transmission and aluminum wheels. The body was finished in the colors of a famous Lotus racing car livery, fittingly for a car which bears testament to Lotus founder Colin Chapman’s dedication to innovation.
