Known History

Since its inception, the lion brand has maintained a passion for motorsport by making it its rolling laboratory. The 905 was an emblematic race car of the 1990s in long distance racing, thanks to its victory in the Le Mans 24 Hours in 1993. From this endurance prototype, a spider version was derived in 1992 for the European Spider Cup monotype championship, with a smaller engine, lighter weight and, of course, no roof or windows. These vehicles are extremely rare, as only 28 chassis were assembled between 1992 and 1993. This one is even more exceptional as it is the third of the 6 MK68 chassis produced by Martini in 1993, of which only 5 remain in existence. This car, acquired by the prestigious Oreca team, finished 3rd in the 1993 championship after having obtained the most regular results of the season. Although in very good aesthetic and mechanical condition, it underwent a complete overhaul, including a new engine and gearbox. It was sold 3 years later to a famous driver who took part in a hill climb and drove it for 100 km. He sold it to a collector who in turn sold it, without having used it, to its current owner in 2012. The latter will drive 30 km on the Pau circuit following a general maintenance carried out in May 2018 and detailed in the Mechanical section.

This 905 is powered by a Peugeot XU9J4 engine, a 1905cc in-line four-cylinder with aluminium block, double overhead camshaft cylinder head and 4 valves per cylinder, mounted longitudinally in front of the rear wheels. It develops between 220 and 230 horsepower at 7,500 rpm, with a torque of 21 mkg at 6,000 rpm. This power is transmitted through a Hewland F3A 5-speed gearbox with reverse gear. Braking is provided by Brembo 4-piston ventilated disc brakes. These racing components are mounted on a lightweight aluminium alloy chassis, which means that the car weighs only 525 kg.

For a racing driver or a collector, this exceptional machine is a rare opportunity. Its use will be limited to tracks, but there are many opportunities to enjoy it: in addition to track days, the 905 Spider is now homologated for historic races, events, and more.

The car will be delivered with its user's manual, as well as the original manuals from the Peugeot Talbot Sport workshops concerning the engine and peripherals management. A bill of sale from the previous owner is also available.
