Around Town: 70s Type 74 Twin Cam Lotus Europa

70s Type 74 Lotus Europa

Around Town – Snapshots of collector cars spotted in and around Los Angeles parapharmacie et viagra.

Drive around Los Angeles long enough and youre bound to see a good number of Lotus Elises and even an Exige or two. What you wont see often, however, is a Europa from the 1970s. This Type 74 was spotted down in Long Beach.

Introduced in 1971, the Type 74 came equipped with a 115 hp 1558 cc Lotus-Ford Twin Cam engine (105 hp in the United States). Sixty miles-per-hour came from a standstill in seven seconds. Despite its rarity, what really struck me is just how low to the ground the Europa sits barely coming up to the headlights of the 80s Econoline sitting beside it. Also, the cockpit is tiny and makes even the Elise look roomy.
