Lola is one of those auto manufacturer names that you know, but yet you don’t quite know. Most of that is due to the fact that Lola Cars tended to be overshadowed by the fanfare of the race series that particular car was running. Between 1958 and 2012, Lola cars were competitive in Formula One, CanAm, IMSA, LeMans, American LeMans, and more. Effectively, they built a home for an engine, which could come from any supplier: Ford, Chevrolet, Cosworth and Nissan used Lola platforms at some point in time. After a disastrous partnership with MasterCard (yes, that MasterCard), the company went into receivership. But the cars themselves, the ones that Lola cranked out for over fifty years, are still absolutely monumental. Seen here are two 1979 Lola T298s lapping Monza, courtesy of YouTuber “19Bozzy92”. These two little screamers are powered by BMW M12 engines, a 300hp four-banger designed with Formula One in mind. We’d love to take one out on the track…we’re willing to bet that the cornering forces would warp our vision!
