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.

In order to deservedly wear the Lotus Europa badge, the car was designed around a lightweight is better philosophy, this 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 structure.

Europa S practicality features over the Elise includes a larger 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.
