This type 49 nosecone celebrates the debut of the Gold Leaf Team Lotus livery in the 1968 Tasman Championship. Jim Clark and Graham Hill were as surprised as everyone else when their British Racing Green & Yellow Team Lotus Works F1 cars changed colour overnight, as Colin Chapman realised the potential of sponsorship. The Gold Leaf branding was not without controversy, but that was never something of which Colin Chapman was afraid. Happily the cars looked lovely and before long the livery was a firm favourite.
