Futurism has taken the car out on forum drives (open roads, not city cruises) so plenty of people on here know the car and how it goes out in the wild. The car and owner are both very well respected on this forum.

One of the SE's was white.

I've seen blue, gunmetal and yellow.

The wife took a photo of this black Europa S in Melbourne earlier this year.

just thought i'd post to say i'm still looking for a europa s.

cash is sitting in the bank ready to rock and roll, just need the car.

i was throwing around the idea of an exige s1 (un-modified) but i keep coming back to the europa.

i decided against futurism's car only because of the colour. i dont think red/maroon is me, probably because that's the colour of my ex-wife's car lol.

wish this car was in oz (or wish we could import europa's): http://pistonheads.co.uk/sales/4084769.htm
would take it in a nano-second

funny you say vinyl wrap, i had thought of that. i'd never re-colour any car i buy as i'd want to keep it as original as possible. your car isnt completely off the wish list just yet
