A very rare car. During the free practice for the 1980 Brazil Grand Prix, Mario Andretti started with a Lotus 79 with the special typenumber 79X. It was painted in the colours of the new sponsor Essex and compared with the Lotus 79 from 1979, this car had a new rear wing attached in the middle and exhausts were brought out from the body. This car was only used on this occasion.
