Essen Motor Show presents special show celebrating 50 years of John Player Special

They were considered the most beautiful cars in Formula 1: 50 years ago, in 1972, the black and gold racing cars of the British Lotus team fascinated the public for the first time in the premier class of motorsport. The design went back to the then sponsor John Player Special (JPS) and became the trademark of the Lotus racing cars in the following years. At the Essen Motor Show, fans will be able to experience a total of 18 vehicles in the striking JPS colors in a special show in Hall 3 of Messe Essen from December 3 to 11 (Preview Day: December 2). These include seven Formula 1 cars alone from a time when the racing series stood for high excitement, thrills and wild parties.
