Lotus Europe 1970 — Bad things: Too many projects, its an old car. Build quality is a mix of british carbuilding and french engineering... (!) However the driving experience is great, the sound is "real", and styling is stunning. My car has been altered with slightly larger wheelarches, better suspension, more power - and I'd recommend it to anyone capable of doing repairs on their own...

Pros: Looks, Sound, Driving experience

Cons: Built by british and french engineers. Allways projects or repairjobs...

Overall:

'70's Era Lotus W/ Gordini Pwr - Twin Weber 40dcoe — Overall, not a car for the faint of heart - or lacking in patience or mechanical aptitude. It's a 70's British car, no worse yet, it's a 1970 Lotus, so: agility over power, added lightness, and a frequent need to tighten anything with a screw, bolt, or lashing pretty much define it.

Pros: it's mine, it's different, it's easy to drive but a rewarding challenge to drive well. It is pure analog devise in a digital world.  

Cons: It's not practical enough for daily driving and it really shouldn't be driven in Manhattan. If I
ever get hit...

Junior Ferrari To You By Onny

Do not listen to European reviews of this car. Because in Malaysia you get it for the price of a 5-series. Now, that's mad. It looks more like an Italian supercar than a British track day car, and has... Read More

Lotus Europa Twin Cam 1972 By pensrollei

I first saw an Europa at the Charlotte British Car Show 25 years ago. It was next to LLoyd Gillespie's XK150 OTS Jag. I loved it right off, but it took 25 years for me to buy one. It runs like a ba... Read More

Cool Car, But Not One To Drive. By Ryan

Many people say "don't drive the Lotus Europa further than you're willing to walk." This is entirely true. My family's Lotus has caught on fire twice and it's engine is officially frozen stuck and t... Read More
