The platypus-looking Lotus Europa is exactly the kind of oddball foreign car that the Japanese go nuts over. We’ve never see one in the flesh in the US, but we’ve seen several in Nippon. Is that weird?
Anyway, here’s two clips from Circuit Wolf, a live-action adaptation of the manga of the same name. The hero hoons a Europa on public streets while a mean, old, no-fun Jun Q. Law pursues him in a Nissan Fairlady Z patrol car. Though it seems the copper bests him in the first clip, they meet again later in the hills of Hakone and the tables are turned. Watch the videos below the fold.
