Lotus 72 Manual
An Insight Into Owning, Racing and Maintaining Lotus's Legendary Formula 1 Car
Conceived by Colin Chapman, the Lotus 72 is one of the most successful Formula 1 cars ever made. This innovative car – with its wedge-shaped profile, side-mounted radiators and inboard front brakes – was driven during 1970 by Jochen Rindt, Formula 1’s posthumous World Champion, and also gave Emerson Fittipaldi the World Champion's crown in 1972. Here, in this new Haynes Manual, is a unique perspective on what it takes to restore, maintain and race a Lotus 72, as well as an insight into the design and engineering of this legendary racing car.
