Don't have a clue what you are referring to. I don't see anything "lotus" in this clip.

You are correct sir, starts at 3:50 minutes into the video. Not 3:30
As I see it, about 5 Lotus formula cars through the 80’s
Not only the other formula cars appear to be correct, so do the Lotus. But, I didn’t grow up with a TV, and all I can do is look on-line, where they do look correct.

And at least they were sort of smart, and covered the better one. Even if it probably doesn’t come close to a cover.

Scroll down this page to the section titled "formula cars" apparently the barn they were in was a hurricane victim...

I read somewhere the F1 cars where display cars. Not real track cars.

Albeit, probably the bodywork is correct. Which, in any case. Is reason enough.
