This car is a well-sorted build has appeared in The Robb Report, the Orange County Register and has been a special display at several concours events as well as being invited by Porsche North America to run fan laps at Laguna Seca at Rennsport Reunion IV in 2011. It has been in our collection for the past 6 years, and as we transition into building our own Spyder recreations in aluminum alloy, it is time for this car to find a new owner to enjoy some quality driving experiences with. We have enjoyed the car for the past 6 years and have used the car frequently on driving tours and events with flawless performance.

This car is docile enough to drive in traffic or around town cruising on a date night, but potent enough for a spirited drive down a country lane, and canyon road, or a track day. Here is a video of the car being pursued by another Spyder up the Pacific Coast Highway in California on the way to Rennsport Reunion:


A great deal of effort was made to make sure that the details on this particular car were as correct as possible from the body fittings and badges, to the gauges, handbrake, seats, and pedal assembly. This car drives as good as it looks. It is ready to get in and go and has covered right at 1k miles since its construction; ensuring that it is well-sorted and ready to go but not tired and in need of attention. This car is ready to go and will provide a rewarding driving experience rivaled only by the real thing! This car is often mistaken for the real thing and has been invited to concourse as a special display vehicle.


We are selling this car from our personal collection… we have several contacts for both national and international shippers if needed. Inspections are encouraged and welcomed by appointment where the car is located in Bellevue, WA at 425 Motorsports. It’s been a real pleasure to own and drive, thanks again for looking!

The car that this replicates is 550-0104, which competed in the 1956 Le Mans race in the 1500cc class. It placed first in class, and 5th Overall!
