T492

Lola - T492 (1978)

The T492 was a very successful in Sports 2000.  This example, chassis number 58, was delivered on 30th November 1978 and it retains the correct 2 litre Ford Pinto engine and Hewland gearbox which are required for competing in the Historic Sports 2000 championship.

Recently having undergone a light recomissioning the car has had a new battery, new racing tyres, new clutch, brakes rebuilt and a fresh coat of white paint.

After being utilised as a Brands Hatch Racing School car this Lola was road registered in the UK on 22nd February 1985, MOT'd and driven on the road.  It featured in the May 9th issue of Autosport that year.  The original V5 is still with the car and it could be re-registered if desired.  It must be one of the few original road legal Lola sportscars in existance!
