Lotus 38 #82 Jim Clark Indy 500 Winner 1965

In my humble opinion this is one of the most iconic race cars from the 1960’s.  Driven by Jim Clark to victory in the Indianapolis 500 it was a total “Game Changer” in terms of race car design as it was the first rear engined car to win at the Brickyard and thereby sealing the doom of the front engined roadsters – no front engined car would ever win the 500 Indy again.
