good luck with the sale. i can confirm the europa is a rather nice car to drive and live with :)  super comfy (drive 2200km's in 2 days when i bought mine), lots of power and torque (driving around the city in 6th is easy to do most of the time) and not as "look at me" as the elises or exiges of the same age - it's a grown up lotus lol

if the Europa S is still under 1000kg...

what is the lightest standard Lotus Elise/Exige variant? and what weight is that??

the europa tips the scales at 995kg. the lightest variants are (pretty much always) the base models. using the same 2007 year as the europa, the elise was mid 800's (860 rings a bell)

You make something idiotproof, they'll make a better idiot.

i'm pretty sure the europa has the best torque to weight ratio out of any of the europa/elise/exige models, but probably one of the exige models takes the power for weight ratio crown, as a guess the cup 260 (until the exige v6 is officially sold)
