2008 Lotus Europa Review
Junior Ferrari To You — 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 all the thrills of Italy as well. You'd be insane to buy that 5-series instead. Period.
Pros: Gorgeous mini Ferrari looks and thrills.
Cons: Lack the luxuries and roominess of a Ferrari

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
