The Lola T70 was produced by the British manufacturer Lola Cars from 1965. A total of only 88 vehicles were produced, which makes the racing car a real collector's item. With the Lola T70 MKIIIb "No.55", Nürburgring 1,000km 1969 from the Swiss racing team Scuderia Filipinetti, you can race over your racetrack and help the yellow speedster with the starting number 55 to victory.
The Lola T70 was developed as a two-seater racing car for the unlimited Group 7 sports car racing series in England and the USA. The coupé version built from 1967 onwards also enabled use in the brand world championship. The Lola T70 is considered the most successful two-seater racing car in England.
Sometimes these cars also show up at auctions. If a Ferrari is too boring for you, a Porsche too mundane, you can give it a try - it is said, however, that getting started is quite difficult. It is questionable whether the Lola would get a road approval again today, which it once had in Switzerland.
