A classic Formula 1 car raced by British track legend Graham Hill has emerged for sale with a whopping £1million price tag.<br />
<br />
Enigmatic driver Hill was reigning F1 world champion when he took delivery of the Lotus 49B in 1968.<br />
<br />
The car's predecessor, the Lotus 49, had set a new benchmark for performance and handling when it was unveiled the previous year.<br />
<br />
Hill raced the motor in the Tasman Championship in early 1969, notching up two second places and finishing fourth in the Australian Grand Prix in Brisbane.
