The Lola T220, and its evolution, the Lola T222, are Group 7 sports prototype race cars, designed, developed, and built by the British manufacturer and constructor Lola, to compete in the Can-Am championship from the 1971 season. It also took part in the European Interserie championship.
The T222s were all powered by a naturally aspirated Chevrolet V8 but in different displacements. The individual specimens underwent changes in displacement in their competitive life. The engine was a Chevrolet V8. Centrally mounted, it operated a 5-speed Hewland MK6 manual transmission. Traction was rear. The chassis was an aluminum monocoque and the fiberglass bodywork was. The T220 shared the chassis with the Lola T222. Damaged T220s were often repaired with pieces of T222.
Among the best results was a third place at the Hockenheimring, in the third round of the 1971 Interserie championship. T222 chassis number # HU04 was driven by Vic Elford, who finished behind Leo Kinnunen, second in the Porsche 917 Spyder and Derek Bell, first in McLaren M8E. At the next round of the Interserie, the Norisring 200 Miglia, the same T222 again obtained third place. This time under the command of Jo Bonnier, who came behind Peter Gethin, second, and Chris Craft, first, both in McLaren M8E.
The McLaren M20 was a sports prototype developed by McLaren for the 1972 season of the Canadian-American Challenge Cup. It served as a replacement for the team's M8Fs, but it later became the final Can-Am design created by McLaren before the team left the series after failing to secure the 1972 championship title. M20s continued to be entered by private teams until the Can-Am championship was canceled at the conclusion of the 1974 season. McLaren driver Denny Hulme won two races during the 1972 season while Scooter Patrick won a single event in 1974 with a privately entered M20.

The Lola T150, and it's the deriatives, the T152 and T153, were open-wheel racing car chassis, designed and built by Lola Cars to compete in USAC IndyCar racing series, between 1968 and 1970. The T150 and T153 were powered by the 159 cu in (2.61 L) 780–900 hp (580–670 kW) Ford Indy V-8 turbo engine; while the T152 chassis used a 159 cu in (2.61 L) 900 hp (670 kW) Offenhauser 4-cylinder turbo engine. Both the T150 and T152 used a unique four-wheel-drive system, which would be banned after the 1969 season. The T153 only used a conventional two-wheel-drive (rear-wheel-drive setup. The different chassis would, over the span of three years, win a total of 9 races, all while being driven by Al Unser.
The Lola T90 is a highly successful and competitive open-wheel racing car chassis, designed and built by Lola Cars to compete in USAC IndyCar racing series, that successfully won the 1966 Indianapolis 500, being driven by Graham Hill. It was powered by either the 425–500 hp (317–373 kW), naturally-aspirated, 256 cu in (4.20 L), Ford Indy V-8 engine, or the 168 cu in (2.75 L), 520 hp (390 kW), Offenhauser 4-cylinder turbo engine.
The Lola T160 is a series of purpose-built Group 7 sports prototype race cars, designed and developed by British chassis manufacturer Lola Cars, specifically to compete in the Can-Am series in 1968. It was the successor to the competitive T70, sharing similar design knowledge and cues. Lola built the chassis, constructed out of fiberglass, and molded into an aluminum monocoque. This meant the car was light was lightweight, weighing only 670 kg (1,480 lb). The chassis was designed to accept a small-block engine, but most cars were powered by either the Chevrolet ZL1 or the Ford FE "big-block" motors, generating about 625–750 hp (466–559 kW); mated to a 4-speed or 5-speed Hewland L.G.500 or L.G.600 manual transmission. This made the cars very fast, with a notably excellent power-to-weight ratio. It was used in active competition until 1971, and was succeeded and used alongside the new T220 in 1970.
The BRM P167 is a purpose-built sports prototype race car, designed, developed and built by British Racing Motors to Group 7 racing specifications, specifically to compete in the Can-Am racing series, between 1971.

The McLaren M1A, and its derivatives, the McLaren M1B and the McLaren M1C, are a series of mid-engined Group 7 sports prototype race cars built by McLaren, between 1963 and 1968. The M1A was the team's first self-designed and developed sports car. Later versions, such as the 'M1B' and 'M1C', competed and raced in the North American Can-Am series, starting in 1966 season. The car was raced in North America and Europe in 1963 and 1964 in various Group 7 and United States Road Racing Championship series events. 24 examples of the M1A and M1B were built, and 25 examples of the M1C were manufactured. They were powered by a few different motors, including Chevrolet small-block engine, an Oldsmobile V8 engine, a Chevrolet big-block engine, and even a Ford FE engine. It was constructed out of a tubular space frame chassis, and, combined with its light weight of 551 kg (1,215 lb) this gave it a great power-to-weight ratio. The 4.5 L (270 cu in) Oldsmobile V8 engine developed around 310 hp (230 kW), while the 350 cu in (5.7 L) Chevrolet small-block V8 engine was capable of developing over 550 hp (410 kW), and 538 lb⋅ft (729 N⋅m) of torque. This drove the rear wheels through a Hewland L.G.500 four-speed manual transmission.
