From S1’s to S2’s the Europa as many cars did  drew attention from enthusiast all over the world. After its initial introduction the car vastly improved over the next few years with the final examples being introduced with this vehicle the 1973 Lotus Europa TC (twin cam) Special  with the adaption of a new transmission and  Lotus Big Valve 1558cc engine Horsepower increased to 126hp, it was producing  0-60 times at 7 seconds and top speeds of 123MPH.

The car came to us from a collector who adores his cars and dials them in for daily use. This car has undergone a meticulous restoration and included many many additional upgrades to correct a faulty factory design such as repositioning of pedals, upgrading components for suspension and safety. A fire extinguisher system has been installed etc. 

The exterior paint looks beautiful the yellow tone complements its additional colors well, finished in a race motif of silver stripes and my  lucky number, along with  various cosmetics additions to accessorize this Sweet little Twin Cam!   The car runs and drives excellent everything has been rebuilt, dialed in and sorted out, This car has No issues to tend to. The vehicle needs absolutely nothing but  to be enjoyed as you wish. We have taken the car out several  times for various cars and coffee, cruise nights and a local show in San Diego. The car gets looks and attention where ever it goes, I don’t know what draws a crown more! the Lotus or my ‘6.1 268lb frame getting in and out of it. But I do fit and I love to drive it.
