Try to think of an example of a F1 car art. If you are a real racing enthusiast, there are high chances you recall this vehicle. The Lotus 49, painted in British racing green with a yellow stripe is legendary on so many levels - engineering, design and history. That is why this Lotus 49 art by artist Ivan Borisov is a true story-teller.
This Lotus 49 art tells a F1 fairytale
Colin Chapman and Maurice Philippe, both legends in the world of F1 design the car in 1967. It is the first vehicle to successfully incorporate a chassis that uses the engine as a stress-bearing structural component. It performs so well that everyone gets immediately interested in the Lotus brand.
Lotus 49 is also the first car to use aerofoil wings. At first, they are directly mounted to the suspension, several feet above the vehicle. But after some mishaps and dangerous accidents, they get banned, and Lotus is forced to attach them directly to the bodywork.
The engine itself is an example of automotive engineering at its finest - the Cosworth DFV, aluminium V8. In the very beginning, the engine produces 408 bhp but grows to 510 bhp towards the end of the production lifespan.
The Lotus debutes and wins its first race during the Dutch Grand Prix, piloted by none other than Jim Clark. In total, the car has 11 F1 Grand Prix' wins. It has an impressive list of drivers such as Jim Clark, Graham Hill, Mario Andretti and Emerson Fittipaldi.
