Need for Speed: Carbon
The Lotus Europa S appears as a tier 2 exotic in Need for Speed: Carbon. It can not be purchased in career mode, and is only unlockable for use in Quick Race. Players can unlock the car in stock form, and in a modified variation, upon reaching XP level 50 in multiplayer.
Thanks to its quick acceleration and precise handling, the Europa S is a fast Tier 2 car, performing similarly to the Lotus Elise.
In the PlayStation 2 release, it can only be driven in the bronze tier drift Challenge Series event.
Need for Speed: World
The Europa S shares similar handling characteristics with every other Lotus because of a low weight. Its acceleration is effective for B class standard but feels lacking compared to most A class cars. Its nitrous boost on the other hand is powerful. Standard top speed of the Europa S is 160 mph (258 km/h). The A class variant can reach 189 mph (304 km/h).
The Europa S is suitable for every race type. Players can outstrip faster accelerating cars in low-speed corners and take advantage of its strong perfect launch boost.
