- "Don't touch Lola."
- ―Phil Coulson
The car bears a California license plate reading 381 PCE.
- "Lola's not just a collectible, you know. People tend to confuse the words new and improved."
- ―Agent Coulson to Agent Ward, about Lola
Lola is a fully restored S.H.I.E.L.D. collectible. A 1962 Chevrolet Corvette with modifications based on designs and technologies developed by Howard Stark, Lola is flight capable (VTOL) and equipped with flamethrowers and the world's first GPS system. She clearly holds considerable sentimental value for Agent Coulson. "Don't touch Lola", directed primarily at lower level functionaries, has become something of a mantra, repeated by Skye to a S.H.I.E.L.D. tech when Coulson himself is missing in "The Magical Place".
In "Seeds" Agents Coulson and May use Lola to find former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, Richard Lumley who had information about Skye's past. Upon seeing Coulson and May, Lumley flees but Coulson activates Lola's flying capabilities to show him that he and May were S.H.I.E.L.D.
During the events when Hydra takes over S.H.I.E.L.D. , Skye is captured by Deathlok and Grant Ward, causing Coulson to board the Bus to rescue her. After doing so, Deathlok and Ward pursue, only to have Skye and Couslon jump (literally) into Lola, then driving her out of the cargo bay ramp, falling and hovering down to the surface. Lola's windscreen is damaged by Ward's fire and her wheels ignite at only the last second but Lola appears to be fine. Skye nearly falls out of the car when she doesn't buckle up but Coulson pulls her back into Lola. When on the ground, a man asks Coulson to pay for parking.
Later, Maria Hill says that "she can't believe that they (Ward and Deathlok) shot Lola". Coulson replies with "I can't talk about it", implying that he was upset by the damage.
Lola makes no appearance in the first half of season 2 but is mentioned several times, particularly by Alphonso Mackenzie, who always expressed great desire to work on the car.
