The Lola LC89 was designed by Lola founder Eric Broadley for Equipe Larrousse for the 1989 Formula One season. It was powered by the 3.5-litre Lamborghini 3512 V12 engine designed by former Ferrari designer Mauro Forghieri. The first larousse Lola car was driven by Philippe Alliot. The second seat of the team in the beginning of the season was occupied by Yannick Dalmas, who later was replaced by Eric Bernard, who quickly being dropped in favour of Michele Alboreto. The performance of the LC89 suffered mostly from the unreliability of the Lamborghini engine. The team only score one point in 1989 with Alliot finishing in sixth place at the 1989 Spanish Grand Prix.
