Description

A frame up rebuild of a previous road car turned this car into a purpose built Historic Production Race Car. The regulations used were the competition rules from VARAC, the Vintage Automobile Racing Association of Canada. It is a fully race prepared competition car.

The most recent owner has completely gone through the car, restored the full electrical system and street lighting, tidied up the plumbing, and given it a repaint.

History

The Lotus Europa S2 or Type 54 is the second interation of the classic mid-engined coupe. The S2 shared the Renault engine and transaxle of the Series I car, with a bodyshell featuring improved headroom and headlight height to meet safety standards. Also abandoned was the Series 1 practice of bonding the body and chassis together, making for a much more serviceable vehicle. While the later Lotus twincam Europas are often favored the all-aluminum Renault 1565 crossflow engines can produce near twincam power levels with an engine weighing 100 lbs less in a car several hundred pounds lighter.

This car was raced for three years after construction before being acquired by the curent owner. For a description of this car when offered by the prior owner look HERE.
