Additional details for the Lotus Europa Special car scale model kit:

The Lotus Europa was the first mid-engine road car built by Lotus, originally being built in cooperation with Renault. For that reason, the Lotus Europa incorporated many parts of the Renault 16, such as the engine and transmission.

The Lotus Europa was built with a steel chassis on which a GRP body was placed. In the S1 models, manufactured between 1967 and 1969, the body was fixed to the chassis, while in the S2 models manufactured from 1969 to 1971 the body was detachable from the chassis. The Renault 16's engine was mounted just behind the driver's back, leaving room above the gearbox for luggage. The Lotus Europa also had a small trunk at the front. Of course, despite its base, the Europa was a true Lotus, with absolutely sporty driving and behaviour.

In 1972 the Lotus Europa S2 was succeeded by the Europa Twin-Cam and in 1973 by the Twin-Cam Special. The engine became a Ford-Lotus with a displacement of 1.558 cc, which delivered 105 CV in the Twin Cam version, while in the Special, with larger valves, the power reached up to 125 CV, which together with Its low weight of only 711 kg allowed it to overcome the 200 km/h barrier.
