This is a scale model kit to be assembled by an adult, it includes all the parts as indicated, but it does not include glue or paints.

This is a welcome first re-issue in ten years Tamiya model of the Lotus Europa Special, with a number of updates to the kit.

The Europa is a lightweight masterpiece of a sports car packed with features more likely seen on a racing car in its era: a sleek, low body, midship mounted engine and FRP frame components.

Europas were manufactured between 1966 and 1972, and the Special was the final version of the car.

It had a "big valve" 126hp 1,558cc four cylinder engine, five-speed transmission and alloy wheels.

This is a 1/24 scale plastic model assembly kit that measures: Length: 168mm, width: 73mm.

The honed Europa design and low body are authentically captured in 1/24 scale.

With the removal of the hood, the engine can be viewed even after completion. It features twin carburetor,5- speed transmission, and shift linkage in the rear, plus new air funnels.

New parts are included for a rear wing and RS Watanabe option wheels.

Y-shaped backbone frame is molded together with rear radius arms as one piece. Front double wishbone suspension, stabilizer, rear upright, and engine are all attached onto this frame.

The floor is directly attached to the built up frame, and the body is mounted on top.

Features redesigned decals, plus new photo-etched parts (front grille) and seatbelt stickers.

A new instruction manual is planned.

A realistic cockpit sports instrument panel, high backed seats, 3-spoke steering wheel, and short gear shift.

Lotus logo, emblems and mirror surfaces are recreated by metal transfers.
