SPICE FERRARI SE87C IMSA FRONT END

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.
