The Lotus Carlton was a modified Vauxhall Carlton produced from 1990. Handbuilt by Lotus in Norfolk the super saloon was only produced in Imperial Green metallic paintwork with ruffled leather sports seats, each of the 284 UK cars had a production number denoted by a plaque on the dashboard, a further 666 cars were built for overseas, badged Omega.
Lotus modifications to the donor car included an upgraded engine to 3,615cc fitted with twin Garrett T25 Turbochargers producing 377HP. A 6 speed ZF gearbox from a Corvette ZR-1 was fitted transferring power to the rear wheels. The car was capable of 0-60mph in 4.8 seconds and was capable of in excess of 176mph - stopping the car was aided by AP ventilated disc brakes and AP Racing calipers.
Classic status has already been achieved due to the low production of this model and the adverse publicity surrounding the car at launch referring to the top speed of the car whilst comfortably seating 4 passengers plus luggage! According to 'How Many Left' there are only 175 examples still registered with DVLA with only half on the road.
