1955 PORSCHE 550 SPYDER RECREATION - BUILT IN 1991
This recreation of Porsche's first competition car, the 550 Spyder made famous both by its success on race tracks but also associated with the tragic death of actor James Dean, is about as good and accurate as a recreation can be.
Built in 1991 by well known Kiwi race driver Graham McRae, we believe this was one of his first creations and comes fitted with a 356 engine and a mixture of Porsche and Volkswagen running gear to make it feel like a genuine 550 example. Only 38 examples are believed to have been made.
It has recently had major engine refurbishment by one of Adelaide's leading Porsche workshops giving the engine the best possible performance for its type. Together with extensive work to suspension and body work, it has now satisfied one of Adelaide's leading automotive engineers and enjoys a full roadworthy certificate and registration.
It is loads of fun to drive and catches everybody's eye when on the road.
It takes pride of place in the foyer of our showroom in Adelaide.
It's a must see, don't miss it.
We can arrange transport door to door Australia wide.
