The Lotus 98T was the 1986-season, JPS-liveried F1 car driven by Ayrton
Senna and team-mate Johnny Dumfries. Senna took eight podium positions,
including two wins in the car, taking the fight to the superior McLarens
and Williams. The 98T was one of the ultimate incarnations of an F1 car,
powered by a Renault V6 turbo engine, which is conservatively estimated
to have produced up to 1,300bhp at full boost. Senna was mighty to
behold at the wheel of the 98T - he took pole position at eight of the
season's 16 races, with victories in Spain and Detroit, famously
crossing the line alongside Nigel Mansell in Spain, to win by 0.014s.
This Manual, extensively illustrated with both period photographs and
technical illustrations and photographs of a recently restored car,
provides a fascinating insight into the design, evolution, operation,
maintenance and restoration of the Lotus 98T.
