I attended the recently ended KL International Motorshow in PWTC, among the cars that were on display were sleek vehicles made by several European car manufacturers. They include Renault, Peugeot, Mercedes, Volvo, Lotus, and the Smart cars. More pictures at the gallery page or click on the photos below.

However, there was some dissapointments as prominent European players such as BMW, Alfa Romeo, Porsche, Lamborghini, and Ferrari were absent.

Lotus Europa S
The sleek and powerful Lotus Europa S

The Lotus Europa S, launched late last year, is a light weight sports coupe weight less than 1000 kg. Fitted with a middle mounted 200 hp turbocharged engine with a very good 263 N·m torque, this work of art can sprint from 0-100 km/h in 5.5s and reach a top speed of around 225 km/h.

The second generation (2006-) Volvo C70 shares the same platform as the S40, has a 3 piece retractable metal hardtop that can be raised or lowered in 30 seconds. Finally something that is practical in the Malaysian weather. Availability of this gem from Volvo in US is actually limited due to overly popular demand. The 2.5 liter 5 cylinder turbocharged engine from volvo pumps out a very good 218 hp too.
