Lotus 72 - Formula One Icon

LOTUS 72 FORMULA 1 ICON is a lavishly illustrated 240-page full colour publication, and it’s large 12x12 inch (30x30cm) format contains over 450 mostly unseen and historic images.

This book tells the definitive story of the Lotus Type 72 one of the most striking and successful racing cars in the history of Formula 1. From the drawing board to the present day, the book draws extensively from the people who were closely involved, including drivers, mechanics, team managers, as well as rival drivers and designers. The book also has an appendix covering complete chassis histories and race records for each of the nine cars built.

Colin Chapman and Maurice Phillippe’s striking wedge-shaped Type 72 Formula 1 car, was introduced on April 1st 1970, as a replacement for the unsuccessful four-wheel-drive Type 63, and the ageing Type 49. Having won both the World Drivers and Constructors Championship titles in 1970, the car went through a number of different evolutions to keep it competitive, resulting in a second pair of Championships in 1972, as well as the Constructors’ Championship in 1973. It was still winning races in 1974 and scoring points in 1975!

What the Press say

The quality of Coterie Press books is so renowned that the arrival of a new one is always an event, and this maintains the trend. The wedge-nosed Lotus 72 of 1970 was a trend-setting Grand Prix car and Coterie's massive coffee table book forms a definitive history, not only packed with information and a wealth of archive pictures but laid out in a highly graphic way that makes it such a pleasure to read. If you like Lotus or just Formula One this should definately be in your collection.
