1999 LOLA F3000 B99/50

This Lola B99/50 is an impressive single-seater race car, with intriguing provenance and which has been kept in good condition. It is powered by the 3.0-litre Cosworth V8 engine, producing 470bhp and 300lb-ft of torque, coupled with a five-speed manual transmission.

This B99/50 was initially supplied to Helmut Marko, the current adviser to the Red Bull Formula One team and head of the marque’s driver development programme. The car competed with a racing team in the European F3000 series from 2000 to 2005, after which it was purchased by an amateur collector, and is now offered for sale to its next enthusiast owner.

The carbon-fibre bodywork of this Lola is all in good shape, with no known prior damage, and the condition of its Blue Metallic paintwork has been described as good for its age and use. As a formerly active racer, it does of course present with some age-related blemishes, such as some stone chips to the nose cone, front splitter and yellow wing mirrors. Some light flaking can be seen on the back of the rear wing, along with a few scrapes around the exposed suspension components. The five-spoke wheels feature some age-related wear, though the vendor notes the car will be supplied with a spare set of wheels, and gear ratios.

Inside, a new seat will need to be moulded and fitted for the car’s next driver, though the Sparco harnesses are in great shape. The three-spoke Sabelt steering wheel features a few scratches, though the wooden gear knob presents very well and there are no major scuffs to the interior shell.

This Lola B99/50 is a great modern classic racer. Presented in solid condition throughout, it would soon be ready for use on the track. It could also make an interesting addition to a race car collection - especially for its Cosworth V8 engine, which is increasingly hard to find, but sought after for historic F1 and prototype racing.
