1955 Porsche 550 Spyder

15/07/2008 - 24/08/2008

SOLD

Also known as the "James Dean car", the 550 was a racing star in the '50s thanks to the light aluminium body (550 kg) and is a relatively powerful engine, that developped a clean 120 bhp. The car was slowed by four aluminium drums and the handling was comparable to a go-kart. Only 90 cars were built.

James Dean died in his 550 spyder (that he nick-named "the little bastard") on a clear afternoon of 1955.

Our replica follows the exact blue prints of the original and respects all figures, including weight and acceleration. The "bastard" accelerates from 0-100 km/h in a sharp 5.4 seconds.
