The Lotus 72, created by Colin Chapman, completely redefined the standard concepts of the Formula 1 of the time. With its wedge-shaped nose, completely different from that of the "49" model used previously, this single-seater characterized by a monocoque chassis with a total weight of over 550 kg, marked the definitive transition from cigar-shaped cars with an extremely profile subtle to the aerodynamically more complex ones that made history throughout the remainder of the same decade. To the long and sharp nose, which echoed that of the "56" designed for the Indianapolis 500, this Lotus had a rather thin rear end, with the radiators moved to a central position, alongside the driver. The engine was the classic Ford Cosworth 8 cylinder V engine of 2.995 cm³, with a power of 450 hp and a 5-speed gearbox. It was the car with which the Brazilian Emerson Fittipaldi in 1972 clinched his first world title, bringing home five wins out of a total of 13 Grand Prix with "D" version coming in a smart black color with gold stripes of the John Player Special.
