|1971 Lola T212 (HU-18) Scuderia Filipinetti|
The attractive Lola T212 was the first of a long series of extremely successful 2-liter cars made by Lola in the 70’s. These were intended for the Group 6 catagory of racing which included hill climbs, sports car racing and endurance racing. The Lola T212 typically used an 1790 cc Ford Cosworth FVC engine which dominated the 2-litre sports car racing until 1971/1972.
This particular Scuderia Filipinetti Lola T212 is one of few with illustrious and in-period, class winning Targa Florio racing history (See the history section below). It is fully documented with continuous ownership and freshly race prepared by the current owner who has enjoyed (double national championship winner) and pampered the car during the last 10+ years.
The FVC engine has been rebuild by Racing Fabrications delivering 252 bhp and has zero hours. An extensive spares package including wheels, body moulds, spare nose section and a complete spare body comes with the car. A spare, new and zero hours Racing Fabrications FVC engine is available under separate negotiation. Current FIA HTP.
This best of breed and immaculate Lola T212 would be a welcome entry for the World Sportscar Masters, CER, Le Mans Classic, Martini Trophy, etc..
