The Lotus Eclat was an agile front-engine grand tourer introduced in 1974 and produced until 1982. The Eclat shared many similarities with the Elite, its predecessor. One of the major differences was the fastback rear end design of the Eclat, which created more space inside for passengers and luggage. The 1981 Lotus Eclat was the series 2 model and boasted improved suspension, a smoother and more precise Getrag five-speed gearbox, and a bigger engine increasing the torque. The Lotus Eclat was very light thanks to its clever steel chassis and fiberglass fabrication, and its 160 hp made the car very enjoyable to drive. More comfort and practical options were available on the last version of the Eclat, including air conditioning and power steering.
