1955 Porsche 550 Spyder Replica
Chassis no. 565502504325
A sensational 550 Spyder re-creation built to the highest standards by Vintage Spyders in California. It delivers the authentic look of the originals but with modern performance and drivability. The chassis is a full tube frame with Bilstein coil-overs and 4-wheel disc brakes giving you control and 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. It cranks out a bristling 210bhp - nearly double that of a real Spyders. As you might have guessed, every facet of this car’s performance is scintillating, and the raucous exhaust note will stand your hair on end every time you hit the starter button. The cosmetic details haven’t been neglected either with features like Mobil Pegasus decals, authentic badges, a Banjo steering wheel, five lug alloy wheels, leather bonnet straps, center “stinger” exhaust pipe, VDO gauges, etc. This car was featured in a 5 page color spread in Kit Car Magazine detailing the build with full specs and insight into the high quality build process. Included with purchase are the removable soft top and side curtains as well as copies of the feature magazine.
