I just saw a yellow Europa in the employee lot where I work. Damn! That thing isn't even as tall as my thigh!!! They look slick in person, though. :D

Before today, I only knew the Europa as the El Camino of GT2! :lol2:

The one I saw was an S-2, if that matters.

I know. :D I'd expect a yellow chopper with green stripes down the sides and a Lotus emblem just above the gatling gun, :hehehe:

Great minds think alike!

and they would be the best handling choppers ever to take to the sky.

The back end reminds me of those ridiculous flares on the backs of cadillacs.

Very good car though... Very.. ummm.... Origninal

Did my first TSD rally, over 25 years ago, as navigator in a Europa twin-cam. Stress , I can tell you, comes from trying to read route instructions while lying on one's back at high speeds in bad weather. :shocked:

I have a 67 Europa S1A that I've tried to autocross. It understeers horribly, so i was just wondering if this is typical? Straight line it's very fast but you have to slow way down for the turns.
