Lotus 48

The Lotus 48 was a Formula 2 racing car designed by Colin Chapman, based on a 1,600 cc (98 cu in) Ford FVA engine that was used in Formula Two between 1967 and 1970. The '48' campaigned fairly successfully in F2, taking several wins. The car was entered for one Formula One race, the 1967 German Grand Prix, where it was driven to fifth place by Jackie Oliver,[1] winning the F2 class. Jim Clark was driving a Lotus 48 when he crashed and was fatally injured in the 1968 Deutschland Trophäe.
