That thing is fugly.

I can't help but to think Lotus bought the design from China, and more ridiculously, their board approved that thing.

Where did the Elise model designer go? This Europa one needs help immediately. Aerovac, CPR, Chest compressions... whatever it takes to revive this noble Lotus name.

My neighbor growing up had an original Europa. It was sweet.

The previous one was made in the 1960's and 70's.

If you blur your eyes, it's like looking at a squashed Carrera GT.
