Lotus 78 John Player Special 16

Not on Display

With sponsorship taking such an important part in motor racing, it was not surprising that the Lotus appeared as the John Player Special rather than a Lotus 78.

A whole new brand of cigarettes was named after the car and the colour scheme reflected this.

With this car, Gunnar Nilsson won the 1977 Belgian Grand Prix, and Ronnie Peterson won the 1978 South African Grand Prix.
