I'm sure that with a BDA, it goes quite well. Looks absolutely awful.

Twin cam Europas looked pretty bad to begin with so I dont think they have made it much worse :lol: But it looks like it would be fun to race and I am sure it would give a Porsche 911 or 914/6 of the same vintage and similar race modifications a run for its money but a well set up and driven Lotus 7 would do both of them

lovely machine, and probably a real handful if you wanna be up front: a 1970 porsche wouldn't get close imo. ------ but maybe a 6cyl. 904? i once had a jps europa, sold it for more than i payed for - it was black and gold and had 17000km on the dial, sitting in a yard for 15 years, so their was a tiny lawn in the foot rooms. too much stuff still left to do on my elan and my wife always on my case.................. sandy
