This Road Legal Single-Seater Is Every F1 Fan's Dream Christmas Present - WTF1

This Road Legal Single-Seater Is Every F1 Fan’s Dream Christmas Present

Ever fancied driving a single-seater on the road? Of course you have! Well now you can with this fully road legal Lola which has cropped up for sale at auction.


It was apparently built as the result of a bet between some engineers at Lola to see if it was possible to build an F1-like car that could be used on the road.

The creation took 15 years to design and build and is based on an unspecified chassis from 1996 (answers on a postcard). It’s a fully functioning road car though with such luxuries as a handbrake and lights, and the wings double up as bumpers. Those wings are fully adjustable too, so if you need to trim out the rear wing for a motorway journey or add more front wing for a B-road blast, then you can!


It’s powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre Cosworth engine which puts out around 370bhp in standard trim, with more available by increasing the boost pressure. Ok, so that’s not quite F1 levels of power, but it’s probably still faster than the 1997 Mastercard Lola.
