Lotus 49 - "It's got a bit of poke"

I found this fantastic video, filmed by Ford, documenting the birth of the classic Lotus 49, with footage of Graham Hill testing it, andthen  its first race outing in the hands of both Graham Hill and Jim Clark. I love the bit in the initial testing footage, where Graham Hill returns to the pits with a big smile on his face, and says "well, it's got a bit of poke!"
