Description

Lot #1534.1 - Highest quality, turn key Porsche Spyder re-creation by Vintage Spyders in California. It delivers the authentic look of the million dollar originals but with modern performance and drivability. The full tube frame chassis features adjustable Bilstein coilover shocks and 4-wheel disc brakes giving you supreme control with handling that would leave a real 550 tied in knots. Similarly, under the rear clam shell bonnet is a SOHC Subaru 2.5L flat four with electronic fuel injection, high flow air filter and jet coated racing style exhaust cranking out 210hp, nearly double what a real Spyder has. As you might have guessed, every facet of this cars performance is scintillating and the raucous exhaust note will stand your hair on end every time you hit the starter button. This particular car was even featured in a 5 page color spread in "Kit Car Magazine" detailing the build and giving full specs. If you want an ultra cool repli-racer but not necessarily a Cobra like everyone else has, you owe it to yourself to drive this 550 Spyder home. When only the finest will do, we proudly offer this wonderful example. **TITLED AS A 1956 SPYDER**
