The Lotus 49 was a Formula One racing car designed by Colin Chapman and Maurice Philippe for the 1967 F1 season. It was designed around the Cosworth DFV engine that would power most of the Formula One grid through the 1970s and was the first successful Formula One car to feature the engine as a structural member.
Jim Clark won on the car's debut in 1967, and it would also provide him with the last win of his career in 1968. Graham Hill went on to win that year's title and the car continued winning races until 1970.
I made this model years ago and have updated it and changed it, so now i am in the mood i have uploaded it... Enjoy!
One of my all time favourite cars very well made. The engine is great and it is nice to see it with working steering. Great job. I am planning one of these in Gold Leaf colours soon. I might come back again ;).
Great work here, I absolutely love this car! That wood steering wheel is cool and the overall look of the car is nice. I'v just built the Lotus 72 to go with this http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/307746 I really like your creations!
