Description

This is the chassis which Elio DeAngelis campaigned for Team Lotus in the 1984 F1 season, competing in 11 grands prix. He obtained two 3rds, a pole, and third in the Driver's Championship. The car is in totally original, as-raced condition. It is amost certainly the only running F1 Turbo Renault.

The car is outfitted with the original engine but with a non-original Bosch ECU. This is not an optimal solution and while the car runs and can be driven it should probably be equipped with another management system. With Renault leaving Formula 1 at the end of the year it may be possible to obtain the original unit. Another possibility is to remap the current unit with less radical cam timing or fit a 2 litre LeMans spec motor, keeping the F1 engine for archival purposes.

The car driven this summer and the gearbox inspected and found to be complete and in good order.

History

The Lotus Type 95T was a completely new car, the first designed from the ground up by Ducarouge for Team Lotus after being brought in the previous year to change the team's fortunes. He produced a neat and very good looking car which by all accounts was probably the class of the field handling-wise, if let down by the still-fragile Renaults.

Having achieving his best results in F1 in the car, Elio asked to purchase the car in running order from the team. The team readily obliged but Renault had, and still has, a policy of absolute secrecy and normally does not release F1 race engines. Apparently Elio's father was able to exert some influence through his business concerns and Renault reluctantly agreed to release one of the race engines actually used in the car. At the last minute they removed the engine management unit, rendering it unrunnable. Elio was displeased with this but by this time had signed with Brabham and eventually arranged for A Bosch motronic unit similar to those used on the Brabham TAG engines to be fitted to the car. After Elio's tragic death testing a Brabham the car was sold by his estate.
