About Lotus 72

  • Year Launched: 1970

The Lotus 72 was one of the most innovative designs in F1 history. The innovative "wedge on wheels" design meant a streamlined and aerodynamically efficient car that handled well and which was 12mph faster than its predecessor. Released in 1970, the exact same car was still winning F1 races in 1974!
