1971 LOTUS EUROPA TWIN CAM COUPE Finished in Carnival red with black trim this fabulous mid engine Coupe has had only 3 owners in its 46 year history and has covered only 74,000 miles from new. Way ahead of its time this Europa has four wheel independent suspension, and a lightweight, folded and welded minimalist boxed steel backbone chassis with a fibreglass moulded body. These innovations were typical of the founder Colin Chapman whose knowledge of aeronautical engineering techniques proved vital towards achieving the major automotive advances. The vehicle has had a full restoration which started in 2012 and was completed in 2015 with a full photographic record and has covered very few miles since the restoration. The certificate of provenance confirms that this vehicle has all numbers matching, chassis, engine, reg etc from new and also confirms that the colours both outside and inside are correct from new. In addition, it confirms that the car is a UK rhd car built by Lotus in 1971 and delivered new to Foley Park Motors Lotus dealers in Kidderminster. Extras when new were brand Lotus alloy wheels and airhorns. The twin cam version is also fitted with the Lotus Ford Cortina 1557cc DOHC twin overhead camshaft engine. Weighing only 650kgs made this a very fast car then and is still fast today. The car is in excellent condition throughout. History folder includes Current and previous V5s, MoT docs and related paperwork, MoT history record, previous road fund tax discs, photographic images of the restoration, images of the completed car, invoices totalling circa 9000 for upkeep and maintenance, Lotus certificate of Provenance, tank information, wiring diagram, dashboard component diagram, original Lotus Owners Handbook, body shop brochures, magazine articles and related correspondence, Wikipedia and other write ups on the Lotus Europa, bill of sale, warranty, various supplier info, original Lotus Workshop manual and zinc plated model of car on stand.Very few cars were made in twin cam version with rhd and according to DVLA only 46 are registered on the road today and very few are for sale. The Lotus Europa was an iconic car of the 1970s and remains an eminently desirable vehicle today. 28995
