Introduced in 1974 and produced until 1982, the Lotus Eclat was a front-engine coupe based on its predecessor, the Lotus Elite. The Lotus Eclat used a steel chassis combined with a fiberglass structure, making the car lighter than most competitors. The cabin was very simple with a beautiful dashboard and narrow back seats. A four-cylinder engine powered the car, offering a capacity of 2.0 liters and an output of 160 hp. The car was very efficient and offered great road handling thanks to its low weight body, four independent wheels and disc brakes in the front. A four-speed Lotus gearbox or a five-speed unit derived from Austin components was fitted on early models. An automatic, three-speed gearbox was also made available on some models. Although it was a very enjoyable sports car, the Lotus Eclat wasn’t as successful as other Lotus models such as the Elite and the Esprit.
