British motorsport business Spice Engineering was founded in the early 1980s by Gordon Spice and Ray Bellm, and from 1986 it produced its own chassis and bodies for C2-class World Sportscar Championship racing, as well as the IMSA GT Lights category.

The chassis, codenamed SE86, SE87, SE88, and so on, corresponding the racing season, could be powered by a range of engines; most frequently an Acura V6, or Pontiac or Chevrolet V8. At least one Spice chassis - an SE90 - was also powered by a Ferrari V8 in period, raced by David Tennyson in the IMSA Camel Lights class.

This lot consists of a genuine Spice Engineering front end. Based on the livery, this may have been an alternate nose for an SE87C coupe, chassis SE87L-001, which is finished in the same red and yellow colour scheme with Denon livery. Chassis SE87L-001 was originally Pontiac-powered, and was the most successful of those chassis, but it was subsequently converted to a Ferrari V8 engine.

A great conversation piece for any motorsport enthusiast, and a fan of the 1980s Group C era in particular; this is a genuine composite front end body part with competition history, which would make a fine addition to any collection of racing automobilia.
