actually after reading more of the post on Moto Creations , I think they were using the pic and make it sound like it was there... There is a newer link to Dobson Motorsports somewhere, they dropped to $299,500 in 2010... now if they could drop another 290k I could afford it...
No no no. That is a tube frame with wind tunnel prepped fiberglass. The only thing that shares with a fiero is the nameplate. All in all a beautiful car.
Sorry but it is a composite chasse [not tube frame] and mostly Carbon Fiber. And yes the car shares little with the factory car. Now the GTU and GTO cars were tube frames.
I saw all these cars race back in the day. I even sat in several of them.
The Spice cars here were built and used styling to simulate a Fiero to a degree but the wind tunnel was the ruling factor. They were built in England and use the SD4 engines. They did very well in the GTP light class. Later on they were given a V8 and called a GTP Firebird once the Fiero was gone. Some also were Buick powered and Acura powered. They mostly ran here but Gordon Spice won the GT2 class in Europe in one.
$299k not a bad price. They were much more new. Just the hood was around $15K back in the day and the rear cover was close to $20K alone. This is just a full blown race car much like a 962 Porsche and it was a very good race car.
Most are still around in various configurations and some in just parts. I would watch some of the vintage race circuits as they will be there or show up there at some point.
I was lucky and got to see them all up close back in the day at Mid Ohio. Pontiac out a lot of money in the IMSA series. Yet today I still have the IMSA sticker in my back window of my car that I put there in 1985. That was some fun times back then as there were many MFG putting money in the series and the support was great.
I still have my Pontiac Motorsports hats from back then and even some of the old T shirts they used to sell or most times give away.
My apologies, I figured most of the race cars back in the eighties were using tube frames. I was unaware that carbon fiber was used back in that time frame. I wish I had been old enough to see these cars when they were on the circuit. Thank you for the updated information.
