• Great cars. Handle almost as well as the Elise. Any one wondering if they will fit, I'm 6 ft, 180 lbs with size 10 shoes. Fit with room to spare. For comparison a seven including a Carerham, Birkin etc. is smaller, more expensive, less comfortable and just as likely to leave you stranded. Though I did love my Birkin more than the Europa.

    noticd the other cars so it is housed by a gear head. Due to the brakes needing work cannot test the car. These have some well known issues with rubber bits and bearings. Solutions and knowledgeable people are easy to find. Have it checked out first by someone who knows. Have seen many of these let sit because of bearings and the cost to repair vs. selling price.

    • 'Fit with room to spare'

      I've only been in one Europa but your experience wasn't mine. Prepared to admit I'm wrong in the general case, but don't buy something like this unless your booty has been in the seat.

    • While we're comparing stats, I actually tried to sit in one of these at cars and coffee this past weekend. Let's just say that at 6'3" I wasn't even able to get in far enough to see if my size 13's were an issue.

    • I tried to buy a JPS Europa as a nearly new car in '77, but at 6'1" and 175, I could barely fold myself in. I really wanted to test drive it but I couldn't find a comfortable way to even attempt it, let alone live with it on a daily basis. Opted for a much less fun (but more comfortable fitting) '74 TR6.

    • Okay now I am laughing my butt off. Your right and I should qualify what I mean by "room to spare". I like to be close to the wheel so I have leverage and am used to folding myself into cars. With the Birkin the passenger had to keep their hands in their laps so that I had room to shift. In the S2 Europa they could move their arm. In the S2 I could drive with my shoes on. My head did not push on the head liner. For me that is roomy.

  • I agree with all of the above by Scot, just make sure that you fit in one of these. I tried an earlier model with the anemic Renault engine but could not fit my 6 ft frame with size 12 shoes and 185 lbs into it! So I passed on it. I do prefer the Ford DOAC engine.
