Eric Broadley founded the British sports company Lola Cars in 1958, and Franco Sbarro was the Swiss chief mechanic for Team Filipinetti, who went on to establish the Atelier de Construction Automobile in Switzerland. Lola Cars raced the T70 in FIA Group 7 and Can-Am before replacing it with the T160.

Mr. Broadley asked Sbarro to create a road-legal replica for his own use. Sbarro had experience with the Ford GT40 and its construction was similar to the Lola. Sbarro built the 'Sbarro Lola T70' in Switzerland and delivered them to England in British Racing Green. Total production reached twelve examples and each wore fiberglass shells and equipped with power from Chevrolet, Porsche, and Ferrari.

This particular Sbarro T70 retains its original chassis tag from the Atelier de Construction Automobile, denoting ACA0012, and maybe the final example constructed. It remained in Europe for most of its existence, coming to the United States in 2007, and has remained in a museum collection ever since.

This open-top Spyder body is finished in red with a removable white racing stripe over a riveted aluminum and steel chassis. Much of the car is incomplete, has a right-hand drive configuration with a steering wheel, set of harnesses, and a pair of auxiliary gauges. The suspension system consists of upper and lower control arms in the front and upper radius arms in the rear. It rides on staggered-width, six-spoke wheels with Firestone tires.

This Sbarro T70 was never fitted with an engine and remains a solid rolling chassis.
