Description

Lola T70 Mk3B Coupe

One of the most succesful Lola T70 Mk3Bs built, the Ex Sid Taylor Racing Lola T70, driven by a host of highly regarded drivers including Brian Redman, Frank Gardner, Trevor Taylor and Peter Revson. Redman drove the car to 2nd place on its debut at the 1969 Silverstone International Trophy race and won the Embassy Trophy race less than 2 weeks later. This is a rare opportunity to own a period group 5 sports car, that is offered in excellent condition, and is a fantastic collector car and entry to the premier historic motorsport events including Masters FIA Sportscars, Classic Endurance Racing, Le Mans Classic and other blue ribband events.

With a well documented history and recent total restoration including restoring many original components this is one of only a handful of cars with unquestioned history.

Owned by a number of very successful owners over the years, the car has always been a front runner in historic racing, and is one of the iconic group 5 sports racing cars along side the Porsche 917 and Ferrari 512. Complete and ready to race with current FIA Papers.
