LOTUS ECLAT S1

2-door 4-seater coupé.

Second new-generation Lotu using Elite S1's chassis, running gear and front body shell, but with conventional fastback coupé style. Slightly reduced rear-seat space and simpler trim and fittings - four-speed Ford 'box and steel wheels on cheapest Type 520. Visually more attractive than Elite, and always outsold it when well established. Lived onto late 1980s as Excel.
