1978 Lotus Eclat 521 (Estimate £3000-£4000)

Priced to compete with the likes of the Citroen SM and the Alfa Romeo Montreal, the Lotus Elite was Colin Chapman’s attempt to ditch the kit car image and take his brand upmarket. But the four-seater Elite’s styling wasn’t to everyone’s taste. So within a year, the Eclat was launched with a slightly more traditional coupe design (although wedgy), less weight, and a lower list price.

This example has had one private keeper and covered 76,000 miles. It’s MoT’d until August 2015. Badged as a 521, it should have power steering, too.
