The Lotus Europa S is a Grand Tourer inspired two-seater which
arrived in 2006. The car revives the Europa model dropped by
Lotus many years ago.
The Europa S sits above the Exige and Elise in the Lotus line up, and below the new
Esprit due 2007.
The Europa S, a less 'hardcore' car than the Exige and Elise,
is intended as more of a tourer and practical alternative. The
Europa is a much more refined and luxurious car compared to
these racing refined models.

means the essential use of advanced high tech materials including
an extruded and bonded aluminium chassis, composite body panels
and a very advanced composite energy absorbing front impact

luggage compartment and easier cabin access, possible with lower
chassis sides and a higher roof line. Inside, refinements include
a full leather interior, driver and passenger airbags and carpets
all as standard.
The mid-engined Europa S will deliver high levels of performance
from a high torque (263 Nm or 194 lb ft at 4200 rpm) 2.0-litre
turbo engine producing 200 hp (149 kW or 203 PS) at 5400rpm.
