With 79 Grand Prix victories, 7 Constructor's Championships and 6 Drivers championships in F1, Colin Chapman's Lotus cars have become legendary.

The match-up with the Cosworth Ford V-8 power plant in 1967 was the crowning achievement that dominated Formula 1 through 1975. This potent combination of Lotus chassis and superb body aerodynamics along with the narrow and compact size of the Cosworth Ford engine earned many a checkered flag.
