Went to Brands Hatch testing today and saw this. Not an elan but very nice and very well prepared.

Not a Europa, not a 47, not a 62 either; I can see why they cut a hole in the roof though. :wink:

I guess a Banks Europa. In my humble opinion, not really a Lotus anymore, but I'm sure it's great fun to drive.

A modern take on GKN 47D, maybe?

Looks like a modified Banks 62 going on the bodywork and registration.

Vehicle check says registered 1/8/76 as an Europa but it has a 4300cc engine. Bet that’s a bit lively! :shock:
