Sold to the king of cool's production company way back in 1970, this car was one of five Lola's purchased for use in the iconic racing movie Le Mans. They dressed it up like a a Gulf-Porsche 917 for production and even fired the car from a giant air cannon to replicate a realistic crash sequence. With a story like that, and the fact that Steve McQueen's name is attached it, chances are, you won't be able to snag this thing for anything less than a pretty penny. But it went unsold at the Silverstone Auction earlier this year, so maybe if you have a few hundred thousand laying around, you can contact the owner and make a play for it.
