The Antique Automobile Club of America(AACA) Museum is thrilled to announce the addition of a 1978 Lotus Type 79 Championship winning Formula 1 car to their Lotus: The Art of Lightness Exhibit opening to the public on January 24, 2015 with an opening reception planned for January 23rd.

The Type 79 was a ground breaking Formula 1 design featuring aerodynamic “ground effects” that catapulted Team Lotus to their 7th Formula 1 Constructors Championship and Mario Andretti to the 1978 Formula 1 Driver’s Championship.

Resplendent it its John Player Special livery, and affectionately referred to as “Black Beauty” the Type 79 ranks among the most important race car designs ever.
