Description

Lot #1220 - This ultra cool Porsche 550 Spyder re-creation was professionally built and is powered by a pro-built CB Performance 2180cc Flat 4 crate motor with twin Weber 44s. It puts out over 130hp in this car that weighs only 1300 lbs. It's an exhilarating package that is blisteringly fast and yet very exploitable. The installation and the process of getting the car sorted out is the part that people generally forget about when considering a car like this, and it's what usually takes the most time and effort. Over $8,400 was spent above and beyond the cost of the car itself in getting the performance dialed in and the car ready for serious action. Similar attention was paid to the rest of the car as well with details like chrome wheels, racing-style Chevrons, roundels and graphics, leather bonnet straps, a genuine Banjo steering wheel, fire extinguisher, headlight grilles, driver's side headrest spear, modern 4-point safety harnesses, vintage style VDO gauges and much more. This little stunner looks very accurate and has the performance and road manners to back it up. **TITLED AS A 2005 KIT VEHICLE**
