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.

Throughout Team Lotus’ history they had a reputation for technical innovation that literally reset Formula 1 car design standards. The Type 79’s “ground effect” aerodynamics continued that trend and sent all other competitors back to the drawing board. 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.
