Lotus Élite (Type 83). 1980–3 (prod. 133). 3-door coupé. F/R, 2174 cm³ (I4 DOHC). Élite for the 1980s, with larger Type 912 engine. Better torque, and Getrag five-speed gearbox. Some minor changes, including new spoiler and rear lights. However, the shape was more dated than Éclat and Esprit by now, and sold relatively poorly in this decade.

Manufacturing location: Hethel, Norfolk, England

Marque: Lotus | Model: Lotus Élite | Predecessor: Lotus Élite (Type 75)
