1:24 LOTUS EUROPA SPECIAL

In 1966, Lotus announced the sports car, the Lotus Europa. Its most distinctive features include an unbelievably low body and a mid-ship mounted engine, which at that time were found only on racing cars. This setup enables superb balance and when paired with the lightweight FRP chassis, the Europa shows top-class cornering. High power engines were added and various refinements were made to its successors, including the final version to be produced, the Special, released in 1972. The Special is equipped with a "big valve" 126hp 1558cc four cylinder DOHC engine and a body finished in the pinstripe colors distinct to Lotus' F1 race car at that time, the JPS.

This is the 1:24 scale model assembly kit based on the Lotus Europa Special, released in 1972. Its sharp design and low body have been authentically captured in 1/24 scale.
