1955 Porsche Other 550 Spyder

Exquisitely executed 1955 Porsche 550 RS Spyder replica by the recognized authority Beck offered by Gas Monkey Garage! In the winter of 1952 Porsche began developing the 550 Rennsport Spyder for competitive events. Equipped with a 1,500 cc pushrod four cylinder engine producing a mere 78 horse power, t took victory in its class at LeMans in June of 1953 and the stage was set for success with all of the top drivers of the era eager to get behind the wheel of the very capable 550 RS Spyder! The 550 RS Spyder was an instant icon that made many a racers career and help many privateer racers beat competing “works” factory teams with its crisp handling and brisk performance. Legendary actor James Dean’s unfortunate death at the wheel of a 550 spyder in 1955 only served to heighten the legend of the car and the company. The Spyders success and purposeful design have long made it an object of desire that limited production numbers just couldn’t satisfy. The success of the 550 RS Spyder have made it one of the best candidates for reproduction to date, trait that Chuck Beck and his company have accomplished quite handedly making the Beck 550 RS Spyder the most sought after replicas available. Not a $3.7 million original (that I would be afraid to even start up, uch less drive and enjoy!) This excellent example was created with only the finest components to capture the essence and excitement from the original Porsche design with improvements like the 2.1 liter 175 H.P. engine and period correct components such as the Sebring style single exit exhaust were used. Outfitted with correct racing style fuel filler, afety wiring on the wheel lugs, erodynamic racing mirrors, “banjo”style steering wheel, eadrest faring, ilstien shock absorbers, acing harnesses, wheel disc brakes, orrect VDO Gauges and livery numbers deliver an experience that few are able to enjoy even today! Finished to a very high standard and very well sorted, he attention to detail is present in every component selected for this excellent example for you to enjoy not just in your garage, ut out on the open road and really sets this Beck 550 Spyder replica apart from all the others!
