Saw this today at a car show.  Certainly stuck out among the American iron.  Is it a real Lotus 62 or is it a Europa with a body kit?  Either way, it looked great.  It had a finished interior but I didn't get a shot inside.

Just a body kit on a a Europa I think. The 62 was a prototype race car.

After looking at some internet pictures I would say it's a kit.  Thought similar the doors on the 62 curve inward where this stops at the top of the window, which looks like a roll up vs. the 62's pop out.

Probably a Banks 62.

Yup, Banks 62. It's a Lotus model 62 replica, made to a couple flavors. Pretty cool to see one in the wild.
