Sales in the UK began in July 1969. In the USA the car was fitted with a 1565cc emission-controlled Renault engine. In 1971 Colin Chapman launched the Twin-Cam Europa using the 1558cc Lotus ford engine with changed styling. Last of all was the Europa Special, available from august 1972 featuring the Big Valve Lotus Ford engine with Renaults five-speed gearbox. Production ceased in March 1975.
