The Lotus Éclat (Type 76 and Type 84) is a sports car built from 1975 to 1982 by Lotus. It was based on the Elite but had a fastback body style which offered more practicality with storage in the boot. In 1982, the Éclat was developed into the Éclat Excel (later badged simply as the Lotus Excel), which used the same engine, but a modified version of the chassis, altered bodywork, a Toyota gearbox, driveline, and brakes.

This 1983 Lotus Eclat Excel is presented in Metallic Light Blue with grey interior. The car has been owned by the vendor's father since 2005, and sadly is being sold as part of the deceased estate. There is very little paperwork with the car as unfortunately it has been lost, but there is a V5 and the car does have a current MOT. The car appears to be in good all round condition, and runs and drives. It is thought that the car has been parked in a garage with little to no use since the last MOT was carried out, so some recommissioning may be required in order for it to be in a roadworthy condition.
