With the annual Autosport International 2014 show in full swing in Birmingham, one of the key manufacturers attending is Lotus. The British marque decided to bring along a selection of its most potent road and track cars along with one very unique former Formula One car.
The dark green racer you see below was raced by John Surtees in his rookie year in 1960. It is the Lotus 18 and a truly iconic racing car. As we mentioned recently, this year’s Autosport International is paying tribute to the former Formula One and motorbike world champion.
Some other notable Lotuses on display include the brand new Lotus Elise S Cup R which debuted at the show, the Lotus Evora GT4 and the Exige V6 Cup R. Additionally, three Lotus Type 72 F1 cars are on display. They were driven by Ronnie Peterson, Jacky Ickn and Emerson Fittipaldi respectively.
