McGurk Performance Cars are very pleased to be able to offer this fantastic Porsche 550 Spyder replica By Martin & Walker Technic Motor Sport Ltd.
Powered by a VW beetle 1500cc engine this replica was registered February 1999 and has covered 9750 miles. Finished in Silver metallic with black seat trim and historical patina a feature. This car has been kept in a garage for over ten years and as such the paint has faded to leave a remarkable aged look. We are going over the car thoroughly to bring the mechanics up to speed. Patina is everything!
The Porsche 550 Spyder was built between 1954 and 1956 and just 78 examples were produced for sale, in addition to factory racing cars. There were many variations and the Technic 550 is based on the 1955 model which is widely remembered as the car owned by James Dean. 550's raced successfully all over the world invariably winning their class often challenging for outright victory against much more powerful opposition. Le Mans, the Nürburgring and the Mille Miglia are names associated 550's successes which culminated in outright victory in the 1956 Targa Florio road race. Surviving 550's are now priceless collectors’ items but the spirit of these outstanding cars has been recaptured by this Technic 550 Spyder.
