1979 Lotus Other ECLAT AUTOMATIC

1979 LOTUS ECLATThe Type 76 and Type 84 Lotus Eclat. built from 1974 to 1982 by Lotus Cars. was a front engine rear drive coupe. It was based on the Lotus Elite but had a fastback body style which offered more practicality with storage in the boot (trunk). albeit with less headroom above the rear seats. The car was initially to be called the "Elite Coupe". [1]The Eclat Series 1 (1974–1980) used a 1973 cc 160 hp (120 kW) Lotus 907 Slant Four engine. Later cars (1980–1982) used a larger 2174 cc Lotus 912 engine. however. because of emission regulations modifications it still only produced 160 hp (120 kW). t did. however. produce more torque aInd thus improved the car's performance. Early cars either had a four speed Lotus gearbox or the five speed gearbox derived by Lotus from Austin Maxi components. Later cars used a Getrag five speed gearbox. Some cars were fitted with three speed automatic gearboxes. The Eclat had disc brakes at the front. and inboard drum brakes at the rear. Air conditioning and power steering were offered as options. In the final model year. a "Riviera" option was offered with a lift out roof panel. The car was well received by the motoring press. which praised the car's handling and grip. The fuel consumption was also considered reasonable at the time. in comparison with the larger and multi cylinder engines used in competitor GT cars.
