We report spectroscopic observations of a new post-AGB star with WR spectrum not identified yet. This star was found during a southern spectroscopy survey of post-AGB candidates selected from Garcia-Lario et al. (1990). This star, GLMP 160, shows the main characteristics of a [WC] spectrum with strong C III 4647, C IV 5808 and He II 4686. In addition the spectrum presents a strong [O III ]5007 Å line. From the line ratio using the carbon lines and the measurements of we proposed that GLMP 160 has spectral characteristics of a [WC6-7] subtype. Here we present some of the main spectroscopic features and discuss the evolutionary status. We also present line intensities and equivalent widths of the identified lines.
