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 in 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.


  • Front and rear suspension with torsion bars is movable to recreate the actual mechanism of the car.
  • The steering wheel moves front wheels.
  • Detailed DFV engine features depictions of pipes and cables for the ignition system.
  • The front fairing and cockpit fairing are detachable.
  • Realistic synthetic rubber tires.
  • Photo-etched parts are included for the ultimate finish.
  • Moving depictions of complex front and rear suspensions employ coil springs.
  • Comes with a driver figure.
