1974 Lotus Europa Special For Sale
|Lotus planned the Europa to be a volume-produced, two-seater mid engined sports coupe built to reasonable cost, quite an ambitious goal for the time. Like all Lotus vehicles of the era, the Europa was designed and built following Chapman's oft-stated philosophy of automotive design: "Simplify, then add lightness". |
In 1971, the Type 74 Europa Twin Cam was made available to the public, with a Lotus Ford Twin Cam engine 113 bhp US version with standard emissions control and Big Valve engine with Stromberg carburetors, and a re-designed bodyshell to improve rearward visibility. Initially with the same gearbox as the earlier cars, once the supply had been exhausted in 1972 a new stronger Renault 4 speed was introduced. In the US version of the Europa Special, where the Federalized version of the Big Valve had already been introduced earlier in the Twin Cam model, the only changes were larger brakes and the optional 5 speed transmission which would become standard on the special in 1974.
This Lotus Europa is a very high quality restored example equipped with the very desirable Big Valve cylinder head and 5 speed transmission. The car also has the original Cosmic ally wheels and twin Vitaloni rearview mirrors. The body and paintwork are hard to fault and few if any blemishes can be found. The interior has original style seats and interior panels while the dashboard has been redone in a racing style brushed aluminum. It has been well maintained by previous enthusiastic owners who new and appreciated the marque. This Europa is a standout attention getter where ever it goes and is a pure rush.
