1955 Porsche 550 Spyder Replica
Metallic German Racing Silver w/Red Leather Interior
RARE 200+HP Corsa Spyder Fuel Injected Flat 6 Engine
Only Corsa Spyder Known To Exist
The 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder exists as one of the RAREST, most elusive and most valuable of all vintage Porsches with values approaching the $4 Million mark. Made forever famous as a purpose built factory race car and now known as the “James Dean car”. The Porsche 550 Spyder has become as iconic for being the car driven by one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, James Dean, as much as it is known for being the ultimate sports car of that era. Even though Dean was an experienced race car driver, he had only owned the 550 Spyder for just days when he was killed while driving enroute to a road race in Salinas California.
Currently possessing less than 500 miles since its no expense spared build, this RARE 550 Spyder reproduction was created to bring the famed Porsche 550 Spyder roaring back to life with modern day amenities, technology and the brute horsepower to make a statement of its own.
Considered a “1 of 1” 550 Spyder with more than twice the horsepower of the original 550 Spyder, this monster Spyder reproduction is powered by an ultra-reliable, fuel injected 200+HP Corsa Spyder air cooled flat 6 engine.
With superb craftsmanship throughout, the attention to detail, and exquisite fit and finish, are clearly apparent. Designed with extensive use of aviation grade hardware and materials this Spyder exists as the dream machine of even the most ardent Porsche enthusiast. The detail and precision of the workmanship stands out as a testament to the painstaking labor and enormous investment in creating this legendary car.
So perfectly engineered, no matter whether you are 5’0” tall or 6’8’’ tall, this car will fit you perfectly with ample leg room for anyone. With no doubt, this 550 Spyder meets the mark it was intended to meet. Finished in the most popular of colors, Metallic German Racing Silver with Red Leather interior, this 550 Spyder is definitely one RARE 550 Spyder. Titled as a 1972 VW Spyder.
Without question, there will never be another like it.
