Lotus Carlton

Lotus Carlton

The Lotus Carlton, also known as the Lotus Omega in mainland Europe and sometimes Vauxhall Lotus Carlton in the United Kingdom, was actually a Vauxhall Carlton saloon which was improved by Lotus Cars to become a sports sedan featuring a speed of 177 mph (285 km/h). Like all Lotus vehicles, Carlton was given a brand designation “Type 104” and acceleration capability was enhanced to equal that of contemporary supercars. Production of Lotus Carlton started in 1990. But owing to the economic downturn of the early 1990s, the production process at Lotus was stopped in December 1992, with only 950 cars being completed.

The four door saloon had many features which made it a perfect car to drive and have fun. The car’s spacious interiors were a magic for the sports sedan car segment. This was further boosted by the easiness and comfort offered by the cabin. Ultra comfy seats were wrapped in leather and were easily adjustable according to the sitting posture. The steering wheel was nicely aligned and included the important controls on it. The dashboard was pretty decent and attractive.

With the employed modifications, the external differences in Carlton from the typical sports sedan were minimal. A rear spoiler was added and air intakes were installed on the bonnet. Lotus badges were present on the front wings as well as the bootlid, offering the car the brand’s authentic styling. It also came with wider wheel arches and powerful brakes complementing the wheels with their enormous stopping power. The car was sold only in one color which was a tone of British racing green, often known as Imperial Green. The dark green color in direct light appeared as black, attributing it with a distinct feature compared to others. The overall design was meant to keep the weight of the car as low as possible, and the engineers attained the goal to a fair extent. The car’s aerodynamic shape kept the lift and drag forces to minimum to enhance the vehicle motion under all sorts of conditions.
