Designer Idries Noah has shown his vision for the next Lotus Europa.
He mentions his work has been inspired by the classic Europa with the high rear section, "it had character" he says. To him, the latest version looks very similar to the Elise and Exige model which does not carry the heart and soul characteristics of the original Europa.
Inspired by classic Lotus cars such as the Europa and Elite, Idries envisions the Europa i6 Concept which also takes some current Lotus trends into consideration.
The aim? A mid engine, rear-wheel drive coupe with a supercharger and intercooler 2.0L inline 6 tipping the scales at 2030lbs. Top speed of 165 mph and 0-100km/hr in 7 seconds.
