This model Porsche Roadster 550 Spyder represent outstanding value against an original which can make as much as $3-$4 million USD.
The 550 is probably most well known as the "James Dean Porsche" as that was what he was driving when he was killed on the 30th September 1955.
Michael Collins Motoring Classics will have this Porsche 550 Spyder replica available for delivery in late February 2017.
Built as a Right Hand Drive model it comes with front disc brakes fitted as the light weight body makes it very quick and responsive and with 140 hp you need to be able to stop.
This Spyder has original Porsche 356 Speedster rear drum brakes, Porsche guages, original Speedster steering wheel and other genuine
1955 Porsche parts.
It will be registered as a 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder and can be purchased for a fraction of the original James Deans Spyder.
Enjoy part of history for a fraction of the cost and have fun while watching this asset appreciate in value.
Please contact our Managing Director Michael Collins for further information. We are also proud to offer a range of services to complement your investment, including fully tailored finance packages, storage and worldwide transportation.
