The Lotus Europa debuted in 1966, showcasing a revolutionary midship engine layout with a lightweight FRP body. In 1972 perhaps the finest model – Lotus Europa Special - in the series was released with a 1.6-litre inline-4 engine (big valve twin-cam engine) capable of 126hp, which was the largest maximum output among the Lotus Europa series. The Tamiya R/C kit faithfully captures this classic car down to rear wing, as seen in the SPECIAL variant of the Europa.

The M-06 chassis features a rear-mounted motor, rear-drive setup, and a longitudinally-mounted battery pack, with R/C equipment positioned on either side for optimum balance and a low centre of gravity. 4-wheel double wishbone suspension uses grey coloured wheels, equipped with 60D radial tyres at the front and 60D super grip tyres at the rear. In addition, a 3-piece steering linkage offers a nimble handling response.
