Lotus Europa Twin Cam 1972 — 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 bat out of He..... Incredible manuverability.

Pros: This is one HOT looking car.  Turns more heads than almost any car I've owned.  Beautiful lines.

Cons: VERY hard to get into.  but after that it's just great

1972 Lotus Europa Review

Cool Car, But Not One To Drive. — 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 the clutch is bent, and the dashboard is in disarray. Overall it's a mess inside. But it still looks pretty sweet.

Pros: Looks nice and it's a lotus..

Cons: Doesn't work

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... Read More

'70's Era Lotus W/ Gordini Pwr - Twin Weber 40dcoe By Marc

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 fre... Read More
