Lotus Elite and Eclat, 1974-82
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


These cars were never cheap and were not meant to appeal to the everyday motorist. They exist in various forms with lots of optional equipment and are all fast, nimble Grand Tourers. All elites and eclats are based on the same backbone chassis, twin-cam Lotus four-cylinder engine, all-independent suspension and fiberglass bodywork. They share the same front styling, screen, front doors, fascia and controls and share the same wheelbase. The only real difference is in the level of optional/standard equipment and body styling rear of the doors. All cars built up to the spring of 1980 had engines of 1973cc and later 2174cc. This is a book of contemporary road tests, technical and specification data, long-term reports, buying second hand, driving impressions. Models covered include: - M50 - 501 - 502 - 503 - 523 - Sprint - V8 - 504 Auto - 2.2 - Riviera
