LOTUS EUROPA (1967 - 1974) The first truly roadable mid-priced mid-engined street car produced. A glass-fiber body draped over a steel backbone chassis with 4 wheel independent suspension. Early cars were powered by a Lotus modified Renault engine. Later this engine was replaced by the Lotus Twin Cam engine and a 5 speed gearbox. Unbelievable handling and roadholding, often described by motorcar journalists as the nearest thing to a Formula car for the street.
