The Lotus Eclat made its debut in 1974 as the successor to the Elite model. Based on the Elite, the Eclat was built using a fiberglass structure and a steel chassis. With its fastback body style, the Lotus Eclat offered more storage in the trunk but the inside was still tight. Two series of Lotus Eclat were made. The series 1 ran until 1980 and was powered by a four-cylinder Lotus 907 Slant Four engine with a capacity of 2 liters and an output of 160 hp. Power was transmitted to the wheels through a four or five-speed gearbox. The car was equipped with disc brakes in the front, drums in the rear and four independent wheels. With its super light body, the Lotus Eclat offered satisfying performance and was also praised for its great handling capabilities.
