Lotus Elise Type 72 - You know why it's special

The Lotus Type 72 was amongst the most successful cars in the history of Formula 1. Its pioneering use of side mounted radiators and a front 'wedge' nose cone gained Lotus twenty world championship race wins, three formula 1 Constructor's Championships (1970, 1972 and 1973) and two Driver's World Championships (for Jochen Rindt in 1970 and Emerson Fittipaldi in 1972).

On its introduction in 1970 the car was far ahead of its time, allowing it to stay competitive season after season with only minor modifications. In 1972 the world famous JPS livery was introduced.
