1974 Lotus Europa 5-Speed Special

VIN: 4157R

When the Lotus Europa was introduced in 1966 it looked original and unique with its mid-engine configuration and rear deck lid design. It came from the brainchild of the British manufacturer that was keen on racing, and its founder Colin Chapman believed in a philosophy of “Simplify, then add lightness”.
