FOR SALE
1971 Lotus Europa S2
Stock 4 cylinder Renault Engine
4 Speed manual transmission
13,XXX miles
Serial #879

Asking $12,250

This fantastic, 2 owner, 1971 Lotus Europa is looking for a new home. The vehicle has been restored to an excellent driver or with a little more work, a concours example. The Europa is easily one of the most entertaining Lotuses ever built. Light and agile featuring a mid engine layout, the Europa has found it's way into the hearts of many collectors and enthusiasts. This S2 example has very low mileage and has been kept stock with only small modifications to increase reliability. Aftermarket upgrades include an air horn, triple core radiator and minilite wheels (original wheels included). This summer, this car won 2 awards including Best of Show at the 8th Annual BRG Fish and Chips Run

Exterior has new paint which was just completed. Wheels are in good condition. Engine and transmission are in great shape. New water pump, brakes, rotors, pads, calipers, plugs, wires, condenser and optical distributor. Fuel system upgraded to run on unleaded premium fuel. New coolant hoses, fuel lines, fuel filter, fuel pump. BRAND NEW Toyo R888's (sticker still on). New head gasket to be installed this week.

Interior is complete but needs some work. Drivers seat will need reconditioning.

Spares Included:
R17 Gordini engine (140 hp) full engine swap kit included. This engine drops right in and mounts to existing trans. Spare electric ignition. 4 bumpers sets. 10 crates of spare misc. parts including; water pump, 4 alternators, all sorts of electrical bits, new door seals (one week old), seat covers. trunk tub, several new carbs, braided steel brake lines, extra brake pads, etc. Too much to list.

This is a great runner ready for the road or complete the restoration for a collectors car. Registered as a classic car with clear title and current plates, there is nothing holding the new owner back from driving her home. This car is being sold on consignment. A new project for the current owner forces immediate sale. British Racing Group is proud to offer this rare and sought after car for only $12,250. Sell the spares and own the car for nothing or keep everything and be ready for years of fulfilling ownership. Contact us by phone at (855) 274-5000 X701 or (215) 915-9109 or by email at [email protected]. All offers considered.

Also some more the the rear hatch, seems to have paint damage or is that glare?

How would you rate the paint?
there's a scratch on the boot cover which the owner has offered to fix (he has the paint) or give consideration for.

I would say the paint, while new, is certainly unique and probably a 7 out of 10. I think it's an odd color combo. the paint is new but because it's flat, it shows every imperfection. It does have the one scratch.

If someone steps up and buys it this weekend, the current owner is willing to really negotiate on the price. Come next week he will have to make other arrangements and his negotiating room will decrease so if you're interested, strike while the iron is hot.
