THE SBARRO LOLA T70

The Sbarro T70 was the result of a collaboration between Eric Broadley, who founded British sports company Lola Cars in 1958, and Franco Sbarro, the Swiss chief mechanic for Team Filipinetti, who went on to establish the Atelier de Construction Automobile in Switzerland. Lola Cars successfully campaigned the T70 in FIA Group 7 and Can-Am before the torch was passed to the T160. Cognizant of Sbarro's experience with the GT40, which shared a similar construct to the Lola, Broadley asked Sbarro to create a road-legal replica for his own use. The Sbarro Lola T70 was built in Switzerland and delivered to England in British Racing Green, quickly leading envious gentlemen racers to place orders of their own. Only 12 of the replicas were built using fiberglass shells fitted with engines from Chevrolet, Ferrari and Porsche, rendering this example rare and highly collectible.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This Sbarro T70 has the original chassis tag from the Atelier de Construction Automobile, denoting ACA0012, and is possibly the final example built. The car remained in Europe until 2007, when it was shipped Stateside and has remained in a museum collection ever since.

With its fiber glass open-top Spyder body finished in red with removable white racing stripes over a riveted aluminum and steel chassis, ACA0012 is solid and ideal for refurbishment. The RHD configured interior is incomplete, with only a steering wheel, set of harnesses and a pair of auxiliary gauges. The suspension system consists of upper and lower control arms in the front and upper radius arms in the rear. A partial brake system remains in situ with calipers and rotors, and the staggered-width, six spoke wheels feature Firestone tires.

This Sbarro T70 was never fitted with an engine and is all original. While minimalistic in presentation, it is a superb example of European racing fare of the 1960s and represents a solid rolling chassis with huge potential. It is poised for personalization with a multitude of easily obtained options for powertrain and interior furnishings to render it the perfect vintage racer.
