Stealth B6 GT1 / Chevrolet for sale with large spares package, maintained regardless of cost including full rebuild of gearbox with new cwp. and selector barrel, all suspension crack tested, new wheel bearings, spherical joints renewed plus comprehensive strip and reassembly, this car is on the button and ready to go.
Over the last 3 years this car has been used by a gentleman driver exclusively on track days and has only recorded approximately 8 gentle hours on the engine and less than 2 hours on the gearbox since PDS rebuild.
The recent Silverstone classic featured the launch of the GT90’s legends and this car proved to be a major attraction even when running alongside the McLaren F1 and Porsche GT1 cars. With the proposed expansion of further events this car has the potential to be a sound investment as well as a highly competitive car in current race series and the GT90’s
We would be interested in running the car in any series for the new owner.

This was the original car of approximately 10 and built by Bob Light in 1998 and he won the Castle Combe GT Championship twice with lap times of 1.03 which is faster than today's times.
David Krayem purchased the car from Bob Light in 2003 and then was developed and run meticulously by Krayem Racing and under the guidance of in house Chief Engineer Ben Scrivens from 2006 to 2010.
The colour changed from black to white as it was often not seen by slower cars when being lapped as it approached in the braking zones and now runs the long tail version to reduce drag and increase downforce although the short tail mould remains with the car. (1300 lbs down force at 150 mph as tested in the wind tunnel at MIRA with the short tail).
David Krayem won the FIA European GT Revival Championship in 2007 against GT1 cars such as McLaren F1 GTR, Porsche, Ferrari, Lotus etc. Krayem won every race except a 3rd at Silverstone in April 2007 with a delay in the scheduled pit stop and a 2nd at Magello in April 2008 with a puncture.
Most notably at Magny Cours in October 2007 in this Championship David Krayem matched the lap times over 4 days of the McLaren F1 GTR of Paul Knapfield which was 4th overall at the 1998 Le Mans 24 hour race and beat the McLaren in the 45 minute race by several seconds.
This caused such surprise that an official investigation ensued well into the night where we successfully proved using our data logging that we had not contravened any regulations.
David Krayem also won the last ever Britsports race at Snetterton in 2008 by a wide margin and ran in the Britcar sessions at that meeting posting a 1.06, quicker than all other Britcars for which the car remains eligible for Britcar GT and Dutch Supercar, VdeV GT (UK and European), Rhino GT, ADAC German GT, GT Eins,
German STT, Spanish GT (with some minor changes) and other GT Championships in UK and Europe and the rest of the world.
Other Stealth B6 GT cars have competed successfully around the world in such Championships as British GT (the fastest car in 2001 /2), Belgian GT (Belcar), Grand Am in USA, Bahrain GT, ADAC German GT, Rhino GT.
There are also similar road cars of lower specification in UK and Europe although this car remains the highest specification and best maintained example.
