The 1972 Lotus-Ford 72D of Colin Chapman racing team. The 1972 to 1973 cars were sponsored by Imperial Tobacco to advertise their new cigarette brand: John Player Special and consequently were finished in black with logos in gold as was the cigarette packaging. This #8 model was driven by Emerson Fittipaldi of Brazil and was the winning car in the Brands Hatch Grand Prix.

Nice model, I have the Quartzo model of this same car which I think is also nicely done for its price.

Very nice post and images of the Exoto Lotus 72D. That Colin Chapman miniature is a good likeness of him. Thanks Rich.

Love this model & the JPS livery.  The detail looks outstanding, as you'd expect from an Exoto.

I received the Corgi 1:18 model when I was 3, in 1977.  Still have the model somewhere...though it has definitely been played with.  Wink
