The T160 Can-Am
The Lola T-160 was first introduced to the public as a quarter-scale fiberglass model at a 1968 United States Road Racing Championship race. Essentially, this was a rebodied T70. The latest version for Group 7 racing, its styling reflected a new trend in aerodynamics: a much more angular body with a downward sloping nose and a pronounced spoiler. This downward sloping nose design was also present on T70 Mk 3B of course. Dan Gurney, James Garner and Jerry Hansen were set to get the first T-160s for the fall Can-Am series. The T-160 ended up being a turning point for the Can-Am series, with it and the McLaren M6 as the cars to have for a winning team.
