Description

The Lola T70 is a British Race Car developed for sports car racing in 1965. The T70 was designed to be compatible with most V8 engines of the day and proved very popular with over 100 being built. The T70 was produced in both roadster and hardtop formats. Early success came for the Lola in winning the 1965 Monterey Gran Prix. In 1966, Lola's won 5 out of the six races in the Can-Am series for that year. Although it didn't have much success in the endurance races against the more powerful Ford GT40 , it did win the 24 Hours of Daytona race in 1969 being driven by Mark Donohue and Chuck Parsons. In 1969 when the FIA changed homologation rules to be lowered to 25 units, the newer Porsche 917 and Ferrari 512 became the dominant cars over the T70 and GT40. When Steve McQueen was producing his movie 'Le Mans' in 1970, Porsches and Ferraris scripted for destruction were actually Lola T70 chassis' with replica bodywork as the Lola was, by then, obsolete.

The Hot Wheels version was called the 'Lola GT70' and first released in the 1969 'Gran Prix' series. It was produced in a large variety of 'Spectraflame' colours as well as enamel 'British Racing Green', it also came with a sticker sheet with yellow stripes and a #10. The casting featured an opening rear hatch which revealed a detailed engine. The GT70 was manufactured in both the Hong Kong and USA facilities, with differences being HK cars had blue tinted glass and the USA cars had clear glass. The Lola GT70 has not been seen since.
