1987: Camel Lotus Honda

If you’re finally getting rid of the John Player Special livery, you’d better be replacing it with something pretty damned good – and to be fair, that’s exactly what Lotus did. It probably helps that this is given iconic status by the presence of Ayrton Senna, but this is still an excellent design, taking Camel’s colours and once again applying them across the entire car and all logos with no deviation. In subsequent years, the movement (or departure) of various sponsors would lead to ever diminishing returns (by 1990, it looked really weak) but here it’s a fearsome-looking machine.
