RARE 1986 Lola T8600 Indycar Arie Luyendyk Two Time Indy 500 Complete w/Cosworth
Rare barn find 1986 Lola T8600 Lola Indycar, chassis number 05, complete as last raced. This car was driven by two time Indy 500 winner Arie Luyendyk in the 1986 Indy 500. Arie qualified this car 19th and finished 15th. The car was owned by the actor David Hasselhoff and Aat Groenevelt and was raced as car number 61. At the end of the 1986 Indycar season, Arie switched teams to Hemelgarn Racing and the car went with him to Hemelgarn Racing. The car was repainted to it's current colors in 1987 to reflect Hemelgarn's number 71, new team colors. Car was originally all black with gold lettering ( attached picture in 1986 Indy 500 yearbook). Arie drove this car primarily during the 1986 season and he had four top ten finishes in this Indycar. Car is 100 percent complete with the original Cosworth DFX engine, nothing has changed since 1987. Car is currently setup in roadcourse trim. It is very rare to find Indycar's like this, normally the first thing that happens to an Indycar after it is raced is they are disassembled and usually some parts are used on other race cars.
