Random Snap>>re Amemiya Lotus Europa

Last year in Japan I came across a Lotus Europa with a rotary swap, but that car is nothing compared to this project that Amemiya-san built back in the 1980's. With a tuned 13B making just under 280ps, this hybrid Lotus was able to reach 282km/h on the famous Yatabe Test Course. During this bygone era, the growing Japanese tuning industry was focused almost entirely on 0-400m acceleration and top speed runs on the now-demolished oval course in Ibaraki Prefecture.

That looks awesome, I wonder if RE Amemiya will look at cars like the Exige or old school Elan and tune them. Body Shop Happy make some gorgeous modified Europa's and Elans.
