"Cough", ahem. The Europa was not the first mid-engined sports car. It was preceded by the likes of the De Tomaso Vallelunga and Matra Djet.

Also spelling mistake in the Lotus 72 text: there's no "e" in constructors.

I always though it was the Lamborgini miura ?

Not so. The Miura appeared as rolling chassis only in 1965 and not fully clothed until 1966.

The Djet was introduced in 1962. The Vallelunga in 1964. The Europa in late 1966. Lotus really shouldn't be claiming the "World's First" award in this particular case.

I only skimmed that vid [watched it back when it was current] so can't be 100% sure but I didn't see the Sonnet he describes as 'buried in the woods' in it. That one must be in one of his later vids, and is literally buried in the woods.

Yes one of his other vids is the one in the forest,  but he had the sense to put that one off till later lol

Sorry about the first photo, it appeared my reply preview but then went missing, a bit like Mark Thatcher. I will try again.

Wow. That’s impressive enough doing it to a scale model. Doing it 1:1 would be 🤩.
