This Europa was first registered In January 1971 to the original dealer Sports Motors Ltd in All Saints in Manchester. This very interesting Lotus was one of a batch of cars ordered for the American market but for some reason the order was cancelled and the cars were reworked into right hand drive configuration and then sold to the UK market. These cars are quite rare and have the larger capacity 1,565cc Renault engines fitted and this particular car has the twin choke Weber carburettor to give a better performance than the earlier Europa. Taking many years of dedication from the last two owners, this car has had a complete rebuild and it was MOT’d in the autumn of 2015. The car has done minimal mileage and it can now be enjoyed by its new owner and fettled as the miles clock-up. We are told that the car drives really well and that it has had an engine and cylinder head rebuild where necessary. The chassis and most other parts have been powder-coated and the car has also been lowered on its suspension with all new adjustable shock absorbers. The interior is really nice and the windows are the lightweight perspex type. Now in stunning yellow livery this highly attractive car has pretty much new everything and there are lots of receipts and photographs of the rebuild. Rarely will you see a Europa S2 in this condition and it is accompanied by a Lotus heritage certificate from Lotus Archives, a V5c and a new MOT.
