Lotus Engineering Ltd. was formed by
engineer Colin Chapman. a graduate of University College
London. in 1952. The first factory was in old stables behind the
Railway Hotel in Hornsey. North London. Team Lotus. which
was split off from Lotus Engineering in 1954. was active and
competitive in Formula One racing from 1958 to 1994. The
Lotus Group of Companies was formed in 1959 which was made up of
Lotus Cars Limited and Lotus Components Limited which focused on
road cars and customer competition car production respectively. The
company moved to a purpose built factory at Cheshunt in
1959 and. since 1966. the company has occupied a modern
factory and road test facility at Hethel. near Wymondham. br/>Norfolk. This site is the former RAF Hethelbase and the
test track uses sections of the old runway. The Eclat was
launched in October 1975. designated a 2+2 by Lotus Cars. and very
similar to the Elite apart from fastback rear
body styling.



This
Lotus Eclat starts. runs and drives. although she is in
need of some time and investment. The white paintwork is in
average condition and the seats would benefit from re-trimming. br/>although perfectly useable. The automatic transmission functions as
it should. as does the car generally. A good collection of
paperwork accompanies this Lotus. including 15 previous MoT'
confirming the low mileage. Having not been used for a while. br/>although stored well. this Lotus Eclat is sure to attract
attention especially as it is being offered at no
reserve.
