Autosport: Lotus Covers

As a weekly publication which was started in early 1950, Autosport has of course featured Lotus on the front cover many times. The first issue to feature a Lotus on the cover that we could find in the archives, was the March 25th 1955 issue, which shows the Miller/Rabe, 1100cc Lotus Mk 9 making its world race debut at the Sebring 12-hours.

The 75 or so issues we show here are just the start of the those we have in the Auto-Archives library that feature Lotus cars or drivers. We will be adding to these pages soon!

The Auto-Archives magazine collections are supported and sponsored by hobbyDB the world’s fastest growing collectibles database.
