With our vendor for nearly 20 years and carefully maintained and looked after during that period. A delightful example.

  • With its minimalist steel backbone chassis, low drag fibreglass body and Colin Chapman’s design philosophy of “Simplify, then add lightness,” the new Europa seemed to have plenty of potential
  • However, it wasn’t until 1971 when the Renault engine was replaced by the 105bhp, 1,558cc Lotus-Ford ‘Twink’, that the design was fully appreciated
  • This eye-catching example is finished in Lotus Yellow with an oatmeal vinyl interior and sits on a set of period-correct Dunlop alloys
  • Owned by our vendor since 2004 and six previous keepers since it was first registered in November 1972
  • Supplied with a huge history file, which includes details of an engine overhaul in the early nineties and a documented major overhaul of the car by Club Lotus in April / May 2002
  • Many old MOT Certificates and tax discs form part of the history and there are numerous invoices for parts and work completed including some from Paul Matty
  • The current MOT is valid until 19/03/2024 and was issued with No Advisories
