Engine and interior from a Jenson.  The quality of this guy's work was stunning

Wow! What a car! Very nicely and tastefully done!!! I would have preferred stainless steel braided lines... Oh, and the rodel in the steering wheel hub doesn't appear to be aligned with the spokes properly.

Seriously, though, that's a stunningly beautiful custom Europa! I'm sure it moves out pretty smartly, too!

Yes was a stunning car and the pics don't do it justice. The details on the way the bonnet and boot (hood & truck) fitted with hidden catches etc. took him 7 years to complete. Subtle body work changes, lengthened  by 4 inches I think he said, widened arches at the rear gave it a real neat stance from the rear.

Wow he even used the gear box from the Esprit! Nicely done. That is a cool conversion.

Looking at the rear crossmember and the comment about lengthening the body, it made me wonder if he'd used an Esprit chassis cloaked with a Europa bodyshell altered to fit. That might have been an easier way plus of course you could have Esprit running gear throughout ?

Brian,
I think it was a spider special chassis.
