Lotus sports car

If you're into Lotus hardware, check out the Lotus Europa Twin Cam in the front parking lot of Arlington Motor Car Service. It appears to be a 1973 Europa Twin Cam John Player Special. According to the Wikipedia entry on the Lotus Europa:
The car's handling prompted automotive writers to describe the Europa as the nearest thing to a Formula [racing] car for the road.

A Lotus Europa was the Farr family runabout car for a few years. Hmm, I wonder what the Farr family used when they really needed to get somewhere quickly.
