  4. Lotus Europa

    Cool Wall
    Very much of it's time - mid-60's to mid-70's. Very much Marmite in terms of styling. However, it was a proper Chapman Lotus. I know this because the Wikipedia page descends into nerdism about bushes within about 10 seconds of reading: The original Europa used Lotus founder Colin Chapman's...
  5. 4C and Lotus Exige

    South Africa
    Had a sit in a Lotus Exige last weekend, very different environment to the 4C, the 4C is more Ferrari 458 like (lucky enough to spend quite a bit of time in those) in cabin design. The Lotus, well going to be kind and say it feels very rudimentary but like the 4C there is quite a bit of theatre...
  6. Regret selling the Lotus

    General Motoring Discussion
    Back in the mid-80s I purchased a 1967 Lotus Elan 2+2. Rebuilt the engine and the bodywork was superb. A few months later the darn thing caught fire. It was repairable but sold it cheap. Looking at modern prices and Lotus have shot through the roof. It was a beautiful colour (Metallic purple...

  10. An apprehensive Hello from London

    Introduce Yourself
    Hello. So, I'm very interested in getting a Brera as my next car particularly the 3.2L V6 (or the 'S' if I can find one). I have spent an absolute fortune on my current car and have been told that it's far too impractical for anyone to use and therefore I am having to sell my beloved Lotus...

  14. A Day with a Lotus Evora

    Motoring Images
    Having become quickly bored with the M6 after leaving Manchester, I took to the hills and had a blast through the Lake District. With the light fading fast, I eventually managed to tear myself away from the adrenaline rush for a quick photoshoot near the Kirkstone Pass. Not a lot to...

  20. Lotus Elise S

    Cool Wall
    This time we have a small and agile British sportscar. The trick is that it's lightweight, and that in turn gives it impressive performance even if the engine isn't too powerful. A track toy, in short. Engine: Toyota 2ZZ-GE Straight 4 Displacement: 1,796 cc Aspiration: Natural Power: 136 bhp...
