1982 Lotus Eclat

Introduced in 1974 the Lotus Eclat ended its production run in 1982. This sporty grand tourer was based on its predecessor, the Elite, with a more spacious and practical interior thanks to a fastback rear end design. Equipped with a much nicer 5-speed Getrag gearbox, improved suspension system and comfort options such as air conditioning and powered steering, the last version of the Lotus Eclat was the most advanced. The car was a real treat to drive with its 2.2-liter, four-cylinder, Lotus 912 engine producing 160 hp, its disc brakes in the front and wonderful cornering abilities. A lift out roof panel was available on option in 1982, and was called the “Riviera.”


1982 Lotus Eclat Seller’s Guide

The Lotus Eclat wasn’t the most successful model made by Lotus despite its many qualities. In the 1970s and early 1980s, the Eclat was shadowed by the sportier Esprit and the more polyvalent Elite. Nowadays, a good model of Lotus Eclat is a very desirable model. If you own a model for your collection, you probably already know a lot about the model and its history. Give potential buyers as much information as possible to keep their attention long enough so that they contact you. The Alex Manos team has many more tips and advice to share with their clients and friends so don’t hesitate to call and ask for the best practice recommendations for selling a classic Lotus. The team is also looking for new models of classics to add to their growing inventory. Should your 1982 Lotus Eclat fit their collection, they’ll make you a top dollar offer on the spot, taking into consideration the current market value and the selling price of other models.
