Lotus Eclat: Bushwick Avenue, Brooklyn [NY]

Lotus Eclat: Bushwick, Brooklyn [NY]

Spotted this rare, Elite-based Lotus Eclat in Bushwick. Amazingly, the classic Brit managed to survive all these years despite its poorly thought out felt insulation positioned between the chassis and fastback fiberglass body. The felt historically ended up acting like a sponge on Series 1 models, trapping water and eventually causing structural corrosion to the rear chassis. Luckily for this weathered yellow Brooklyn native, this was one of the Series 2 cars fitted with a galvanised chassis. Check out the window…she’s for sale!! As Jalopnik will tell you, buyer beware.
