1978 Lotus Eclat

Introduced in 1974, the Lotus Eclat was produced until 1980 for the Series 1, and then replaced by the Series 2. The second-generation model was only manufactured for two years before the model was discontinued in favor of the Lotus Excel. The Eclat was based on its predecessor, the Lotus Elite. The main differences were the increased cabin and trunk space created by the new fastback rear end design. The body was modern, with iconic pop-up lights, straight lines and sharp angles and the construction combined a steel chassis and a fiberglass body. A 2.0-liter Lotus engine with four straight cylinders powered the 1978 Lotus Eclat, generating an output of 160 hp. The car featured all independent wheels and disc brakes in the front and was overall a very well equipped model, offering satisfying performance.
