Lotus Europa with an Audi 1.8T 20v inline-four

This 1971 Lotus Europa Series 2 was built by Winnicki Oldtimer Gara┼╝ in Wroclaw, Poland. The factory inline-four has been replaced with a turbocharged Audi 1.8 L BAM 20v inline-four. Running off a ECUMaser ECU the engine produces 290 horsepower and 370 Nm (272 lb-ft) of torque. Behind the engine is a transmission from a FWD Audi A4. This combo is good for 0-100 kph (0-62 mph) in four seconds thanks to the light body and chassis. The rear subframe and suspension were taken from a Mazda MX-5 and you can find AVO coilovers and Wilwood disc brakes on every corner.
