1969 Lotus Europa S2

With much excitement we purchased this BRG 1969 Lotus Europa S2, chassis +54/1267+, on Wednesday.

The car has been on the island for some time, and was saved from another winter outside. It has considerable dirt and mildew, but retains almost all its original bits which attracted us to it.

I can’t think of better value on the collector car market today. Only 3600 Europas were made in the early configuration and they are still at the bottom of the market. This is a result of the uncompromising design, oddball shape and it isn’t a status symbol.

For Mini MK3 money we got a mid engine layout, lightweight construction and lofty sporting appeals.
