Mystery Lola (maybe)

PostSun May 20, 2012 11:51 am

Anyone know what the car behind the T142 is in this shot from the Hemmings story on Lola's bankrupcy?

It's vaguely Ford GT40 / Lola Mk6 GT / Lola T70, but doesn't seem to be any of those.

Looks like it's a Sbarro-modified road-going T70.
Odd that there are that many changes, but not that odd.

Nice! I knew the Hoons would come through.

Now, what's the car above it to the left? There's another pic of it on that site, but no description of that one.

Found it.

(BTW - We need a way to mod images for width here.)
