The Lotus 72 was one of Formula 1’s most successful cars, winning three constructors’ titles and two drivers’ championships piloted by Jochen Rindt and Emerson Fittipaldi.

But it was also revolutionary, and formed the basis of renowned technical illustrator Giorgio Piola’s “most important drawing” of an F1 car – which stands at two metres in length.
