2006 Lotus Europa S
For sale, is my sympathetically upgraded Europa. I’ve owned this car for 5 years, it’s been totally reliable, but sadly no longer getting used much and with plans for another vehicle I’m running out of space. I’m quite sad to be selling and would keep if I had the space.
Include Milltek SS back box, Aluminium radiator, heater controls moved up in front clam to prevent water corrosion, body colour refurbished wheels, (no more brake dust covered wheels), new sump and oil cooler pipes, stereo swapped for a more modern head unit with USB connectivity, I still have the original Blaukpunt sat nav head, remapped for better performance.
This car comes with a full service hsitory and box file full of receipts. Cam belt was changed in Feb 2019, serviced Nov 2018, MOT till August. Front brakes (pads and shoes) have covered 2000 miles, new rear pads (100 miles), new front headlights and front bumper has just been resprayed to remove stone chips.
Remapped to 222 bhp, there is a huge difference in mid range power, see photo of dyno graphs, it’s getting 55bhp more at 4500rpm vs. a stock car and has a power band of nearly full power from 4500rpm to 7000rpm. The Europa comes with the reliable GM 2.0 turbo engine so parts are easy and cheap and more tuning can be added with a bigger turbo, fellow Europa owners have got to 300bhp!!
This really is a joy to drive, if you like the acceleration punch of a turbo car you’ll love this. There really is nothing to do but enjoy it.
