We are delighted to offer this unique Group C championship winning Spice SE90P-013 for sale.
First established at Silverstone circuit in 1986, Spice Engineering quickly built up a reputation for producing fast and reliable cars in the smaller Group C2 and IMSA Lights classes. After achieving considerable success on both sides of the Atlantic and winning many titles, Spice made the move to the larger C1 and GTP classes with the SE89 which was developed and replaced by the successful SE90 for the 1990 season.
Twelve SE90 chassis were built by Spice with this particular car, chassis SE90P-013, being the only Chevrolet V8 powered SE90P which was run as a quasi-works effort in 1990/1991 through Spices long standing US/IMSA connection with General Motors and the Pontiac brand which had powered the majority of Spice cars previously raced in IMSA.
The power unit is a 6.5 liter Chevrolet engine on Kinsler injection delivering just short of 700bhp with loads of torque. With the car's weight being exactly 900kg, this equates to an enormous power-to-weight ratio of 0,78.
SE90P-013 raced in the IMSA championship from 1990 to 1996 with 3 Daytona 24hr and 4 Sebring 12hr participations culminating in a 2nd OA at Sebring in 1994 and 1995 driven by an all LeMans 24hr winning driver line-up of Derek bell, Andy Wallace and Jan Lammers. A full race- and onwership history file comes with the car. After this most impressive racing career, the car then spent some years in the Auto Toy Store warehouse until being bought and rebuilt in 2008 for historic Group C racing. It further added to its already imporessive palmares by winning the 2015 Group C Series overall and the C1 class. More recently the car raced at Barcelona, Spa and Imola in 2018.
SE90P-013 is sold in 100% race-ready condition with a fresh, zero-miles engine and crack-tested for the 2020 Group C race season. In addition, it comes with very extensive spares allowing to run the car for multiple years without the need for additional parts.
This stunning Chevy C1 Spice provides its new owner the opportunity to run at the front of the Group C Championship - including the race at Le Mans Classic in 2020 - at a fraction of the cost of similar performant cars such as Jaguar, Nissan or Sauber Mercedes!... For more information visit rmd.be.
