The Lotus 48 was a Formula 2 car designed by Colin Chapman, based on a 1600 cc Ford FVA engine that was run around 1967 to 1970 on Formula Two. The 48 campaigned fairly successfully in F2, taking several wins. The car was entered for one F1 race, the 1967 German Grand Prix, where it was driven to fifth place by Jackie Oliver. Jim Clark was driving a Lotus 48 when he crashed and was fatally injured in the 1968 Deutschland Trophäe.
