The Lotus 72 is seen by many to be the most beautiful, innovative and iconic Formula One racing car of the 1970s. Colin Chapman’s revolutionary idea of moving the radiator from the front of the car to a pair in sidepods allowed a sweeping change in the looks, handling and ability of Formula One cars. Firstly in Gold Leaf colours and then in the stunning black and gold of JPS, the Lotus 72 swept all before it in the early 1970s, proving to be the class of the field.

Powered by a just as legendary engine - the Ford Cosworth DFV 3.0 V8 - the Lotus mated the power of this world beating engine with handling that left the rest of the field behind. This chassis – identity number 7 (of 9) - was raced at the 1972 British Grand Prix by the soon to be World Champion Emerson Fittipaldi. Around the sweeping confines of the Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit Emerson emerged victorious over the Tyrrell of Jackie Stewart by just 4 seconds as he charged towards that year’s crown.

This beautiful and simply amazing Pocher model features detail from the monocoque chassis right up, through the suspension and engine components to the incredibly detailed cockpit. All logos are faithfully recreated and with real rubber tyres this impressive 1:8 model will become the star of any collection of motorsport heroes, famous cars, or pieces of art.

The finished model measures out at an incredible 523mm long, with a width of 235mm. Certainly the star of any collection.
