A History Maker
The Lotus 72 was certainly an attention-grabbing car, and not just because of the stunning performance which swept Jochen Rindt to a world championship in 1970. An unmistakable wedge-shaped silhouette, cockpit-side radiators and torsion bar spring suspension were just some of the notable features on its avant-garde design. Team Lotus were never ones to rest upon their laurels, and the 1972 iteration of the car, the 72D was updated across the board - including a high-profile change of sponsor and a striking black color scheme. Burgeoning Brazilian driving sensation Emerson Fittipaldi was right at home in the 72D, and his 5 victories from 12 races were enough to take him to a maiden drivers' championship and Lotus to yet another team championship crown.
