LOLA T492 V8 historic replica project SOLD

Astom Martin F1 Show Car



Due to a lack of time, our stranded project Lola T492 replica is up for sale. The goal was to create a V8-powered historic 70’s look sports prototype monster for competing in sportscar championships and/or hill-climbing.


See attached photo’s. The last photo is not ours, but an example of what it would look like.


It’s a self-build chassis made from chrome-molybdenum tubing.

The chassis has a Toyota V8 1ufze 4-liter engine mated to an Audi 01X 6-speed gearbox/transaxle.

The chassis is as good as complete, but needs the welding completed (it’s tacked for now) and some diagonals added. The welding can be completed by us at extra cost.

The suspension is as good as complete, but miss suspension units.

Driveshafts are included and also need welding.


So with a bit of work, the rolling chassis would be complete and ready for paneling.


Here’s a summary of the parts included in the project:

  • Chassis in the state you can see it in the photo’s
  • Including all fittings & rose joints (quite a cost on its’ own)
  • New fibreglass body
  • 13” Compomotive wheels (lightweight)
  • Quick-rack
  • Aluminium front hubs
  • Wilwood calipers
  • Wilwood pedal box
  • Toyota 1uz-fe engine
  • Audi 6-speed gearbox
  • various drawings and jigs for the produced parts


It’s a super-cool project that will turn out to be a very unique and fast historic car replica. It needs somebody with a bit of time on their hands to finish it up. The alternative is that we split it up and sell in its’ component parts, but we’d really rather someone else bring it across the finish line after all the work we put in so far!


Feel free to contact me for more information, or even better come and take a look.


The car is situated in Donkerbroek, Friesland, The Netherlands.


The project is sold ‘as seen’ without any form of guarantee.
