Built by Lola, raced in the Can-Am championship by John Surtees, the Lola T70 is one of the most beautiful race cars ever made. So it was a good point to start when Gardner Douglas began development of its T70 Spyder.
It weighs just 900kg, but develops up to 700bhp from a range of GM V8 engines. But can it outhandle one of the world’s most able series production supercars, the McLaren MP4-12C? Steve Sutcliffe takes to the track to find out.
