Eclat 40th anniversary

Recommended Posts

I didnt realise it had the same birth year as the Esprit. Probably being a bit overshadowed by the Esprit I would guess due to the no.s produced. That said the Eclat now has a nice looking sticker where I dont think the Esprit has? I dont know if any of the Eclat chaps would want to combine celebrations with the Esprit? Cant speak for everyone else but I would welcome you.

Lotus Since the 70s Volume 1

 

"Although it was the Mid engined Esprit which stole the show for Lotus in October 1975, the simultaneous launch of the Eclat was commercially just as important."

 

There you go! Joint party it has to be!

I might very well be interested in one of those for my Eclat :)

Well, they're free apart from postage (thanks to TLF). I'm just trying to get an idea of how many may be needed. We did around 25 for the Elite so I guess about the same again.

Here's a design for the Esprit if you'd like to run with it - no copyright os sensitivity over the design, just in keeping with the others!

I'd love a sticker too please - although mine's an S2 I don't want to wait another five years!

 

Unless we can do a run of 35th anniversary ones too...

I think the S2.2 is still designated M52, so you should be OK!

Sorry about the delay - there was a minor distraction/car crash involving a similar Esprit 40th sticker on the Esprit forum :harhar: - I'll liaise with Bibs to get them printed.

 

Once this is done I'll start a new thread where people can place their orders and request my address in order to send a stamped addressed envelope.

 

Simples!

Anyone know if there are any plans for a 'get-together' of cars for the 40th Anniversary?

Not really a "meet" but Lotusexcel.net are organising a display of Eclats at the NEC Classic Car Show this year, you need to have your car on the stand all 3 days though.
