Lola Aston Martin T70 1967

When Eric Broadley, founder of Lola Cars Limited, returned from his consultant contract with Ford for the development of the Ford GT40, he started business again as racing car developer and manufacturer. In 1965, he launched the Group 7 Lola T70 open racing sports car at the Racing Car Show in London. Two years later and after some fourties Lola T70 had been built and sold in Europe and the USA, he prepared the closed body Lola T70 Mk III.

John Surtees was one of the first customer and bought two cars to be equipped with 5 Litre Aston Martin V8 engine prepared for racing by Tadek Marek. The Lola Aston Martin was entered by Team Surtees in several events during 1967 including Le Mans 24 Hour endurance race. The Lola Aston Martin was very fast but did not meet success due in part to engine reliability. John Surtees replaced the engine by a specially prepared 5.9 Litre Chevrolet V8 and the race went on.
