We all know that early Lotus products were brilliantly designed and great drivers cars but this came at a price with reliability and build quality being the main two areas of weakness.

Toyota began to be involved with a shareholding in the company in the 1980s and also design and utilising Toyota components.

The Excel was an example of this collaboration with its Supra gearbox. differential and many other quality parts integrated into the build.

With a galvanised chassis and better overall build techniques these examples are really well put together and drive like they will manage to achieve your journeys goal rather than breakdown every trip like some early Lotus products.

Still propelled by the famous 2. 2 litre Lotus twin cam engine they are throaty old school drivers cars with a great nimble feel to the chassis and great cruising abilities thanks to the 5 speed gearbox.

This stunning Calypso red example has had around £6000 spent during the past couple of years maintaining her excellent condition.

There is a history file documenting this expenditure and old invoices. mots etc.

She is a great fun driver and must be one of the best value underrated models Lotus produced.
