The car in which Ayrton Senna scored his first Grand Prix victory was one of four Lotuses on display at Autosport International. Senna won the 1985 Portuguese Grand Prix in the Renault turbo-powered 97T.
One of the revolutionary 49s was also on display. This car introduced the Cosworth DFV power plant and the concept of using the engine as a stressed member within the chassis. Graham Hill won the 1968 world championship in a Lotus 49.
A Lotus 25, with which Jim Clark dominated the 1962 season, was also on display. And the Lotus 72, which spanned six seasons from 1970 to 1975, bringing world titles for Jochen Rindt in 1970 (posthumously) and Emerson Fittipaldi in 1972. Pictures below.
