Highly successful prototype:
The 1988 Spice C2 racing car was a highly successful race car built by Spice Engineering. It featured a lightweight aluminum and carbon fiber chassis and was powered by a turbocharged 3.3-liter Cosworth V8 engine that could produce up to 650 horsepower.
The car was designed to compete in the World Sports Prototype Championship and won several races during the 1988 season. The Spice C2 was known for its exceptional handling and speed, and it helped establish Spice Engineering as a major player in the world of endurance racing.
This example: This original 1988 Spice C2 has secured 12 podiums in the Historic Category since 2010 and is an ideal Le Mans Classic contender.
Originally owned by the French gentleman driver Jean-Louis Ricci, the car took part in the 1988 and 1989 Group C2 World Championships with great success: it came second overall in 1988 and fourth overall the following year. It also came first in the Supercup Championship at the Nürburgring and took part in the Le Mans 24h in 1988 and 1989.
The car was bought by its current owners in 2004, who moved it to Belgium. During the next five years it was maintained by MEC Auto, near Spa Francorchamps, who carried out material works to put it back to its original configuration of the 1988 Group C World Championship. For example, the car was fitted in 2009 with a Cosworth engine DFL/S 3.3 liters V8 prepared by Geoff Richardson Engineering Ltd.
Since 2010 the car has been a regular entrant in the Group C Historic Championship, with frequent podiums in C2 category (13 Podiums in 18 races).
As of today, the engine and gearbox have only been used for a total of two hours since being fully rebuilt in 2017.
The car is currently for sale at Boutsen Classic Cars.
