Born in a Cleveland suburb in 1925, Paul Newman was an actor, film-maker, entrepreneur, philanthropist, motorsport enthusiast, and all-around American legend. As one of the all-time-most celebrated figures in motorsport, every machine Newman piloted is considered wildly elite, boasting a very unique pedigree, and such is the case with the Spice-Chevrolet SE89P Works Race Car that the actor piloted throughout the 1990 race season.

Newman campaigned the all-aluminum V8-powered works racer at that year’s Road America 500km, Walkins Glen 500km, and the 2hr of San Antonio in the Group C/GTP class — making it the only Group C/GTP racer ever driven by Newman. After competing the next season. this specimen — chassis 002 — sat dormant until 2018 when it underwent a full bare-tub rebuild in which the car was returned to its exact 1989-spec, complete with a fresh 700hp Chevy eight-banger. That same year it was run at the Le Mans Classic, where it proved to be a thoroughly competitive machine. Some three-decades after Newman last climbed out of the cockpit, this 1989 Spice-Chevrolet SE89P Works Race Car has come up for sale through elite Micheldever, England-based auto dealers, Duncan Hamilton ROFGO, where the price is available upon request.
