Rest assured it will be used and enjoyed, should make an appearance at Castle Combe in May and then as many Lotus events as possible until the snow starts again, so probably mid August.

Rare indeed, the certificate of provenance shows that it is in fact unique, only Riviera in Silver Diamond with red leather/cloth interior and manual steering. There were 67 domestic Eclat Rivieras produced and 13 export, I was always under the impression that the total was 78 but clearly it is 80, of which I have had four.

Not been in my possession for 25 years I hasten to add, I have been conducting a thorough refurbishment for the past 11 months. The tax disc shows 1994 so the previous MOT was probably 1993.

Many will remember my black/gold Riviera that I sold about 4 years ago, that was stunning and I bitterly regret selling it, I would say that this one is every bit as good.

Absolutely beautiful! Very understated color.

I had no idea they were so rare, now regretting even more I did't get the yellow one that was for sale some time ago...

Now out to enjoy it in the sun with that lovely roof off. 😎

David,

Loving your car! Surprised though to see the spare wheel under the car - I thought later Éclat's had the wheel internally?

Enjoy her

Cheers

Thanks Ant, my intention is to use as much as possible.

All S2 Elite/Eclat models had the spare wheel hanger, the Eclat S1 arrangement with the spare hidden in the boot is a much better solution imho.
