A victory in Daytona!
The Lola T70 MKIIIb "No.6", 24h Daytona 1969 is a true-to-original model in the new Carrera fleet for the Carreraristi. 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. The Lola T70 celebrated its greatest success with victory in the Daytona 24-hour race, also known as the 8th Annual World's Championship 24 Hours of Daytona International Road Race.
The Lola T70 was developed in 1965 by the British racing car manufacturer Lola as a two-seater racing sports 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 vehicles show up at auctions. If a Ferrari is too boring for you, a Porsche too profane, you can give it a try - it is said 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.
