From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Eifelland was a German Formula One team, named after German caravan manufacturer Eifelland based in Germany's Eifel mountains.

Eifelland only participated in FIA Formula One World Championship in the 1972 Formula One season. Their driver was German Rolf Stommelen.

The car was based on a March 721 Formula One car, redesigned by German designer Luigi Colani in his typical rounded aerodynamic style. The car featured an air intake in front of the driver, with the air being guided around the cockpit to the engine. A single rear view mirror was mounted right before the driver. Problems with overheating, downforce and reliability meant that the team had to replace some of Colani's designs with the regular parts from March.
