Lotus updates 2008 Europa range
The cars feature a new body-colored mesh grille, multispoke light alloy wheels, and blacked-out headlight surrounds. The 2008 models also get a slight revision to the double wishbone suspension set-up but keeps the Bilstein mono-tube dampers and coaxial Eibach springs at each corner.
The Europa still features a mid-mounted 2.0L turbocharged engine and in SE trim it churns out peak output of 225hp and 300Nm of torque. Even though the Europa is engineered with a more relaxed driving characteristic than its Elise and Exige siblings, the luxurious roadster still completes the 0-60mph sprint in a brief 5.7 seconds and reaches a top speed of 143mph.
