For Sale: 1986 Lotus Excel in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of St. Louis is proud to present this 1986 Lotus Excel SE. This Car was imported from Switzerland in 2007 and was restored from 2017 to 2019. Because it was imported from Switzerland, it is left hand drive, which makes it that much more enjoyable in the U.S. This also makes it one of just 50 units produced left hand drive with the S.E package. The lotus Excel was never offered for sale in the United States so they tend to be quite rare here. However, this particular trim package is rare no matter where you look. In 1986 Lotus too the Excel model a step farther by introducing the S.E. This package provided more power with a tuned up engine as well as few additional comfort options like upgraded AC and an adjustable steering column. The engine changes include higher compression pistons, a cam re-design to increase lift, and larger valves. All of this bumps the horsepower and torque numbers up a substantial margin. The power goes through a Toyota Supra sourced 5 speed transmission (W56) that sends the power to the rear wheels. The body of these sporty, lightweight coupes is made from vacuum injected resin and was made in upper and lower halves which were joined together over a galvanized steel backbone chassis. This provided a good level of structural rigidity. The chassis is sitting on coil springs and dampers on all four corners. The restoration of this gorgeous rarity was done extremely well and this car is in very good condition. You will certainly not find another one like it anywhere in this country.
