Lola Car was started in 1958 by Eric Broadley, an English car enthusiast who wanted to start his own car company in the U.K., so he set up a garage in Birmingham. It took him five years to establish it and sell a few vehicles.
Aged sixteen, Broadley went on vacation in Greece with his father. He later recalls that he was able to drive around a number of Greek islands that were controlled by the Greek military. After returning home, he bought a used vehicle for his own use. Lola Car was founded the next year.

In 1998 Lola Car introduced a series of new vehicle designs, which were a big hit with the general public. Lola began to create several new versions of their sports and touring cars, and supercars. The company's goal was to develop an affordable sports car that could be found in many different styles, colors and body types. Lola's production model of sports cars is now one of the most popular in Europe.
