Quality engineering is what made the 550 Spyder a legend, and this replica really takes that sprit to heart. The motor is correctly position so most of the weight is ideally towards the center of the car. The hardy VW-based 2160cc flat-four has been upgraded with a dual Weber carb setup. Plus, the motor also features 37x42mm valves, a 2288 camshaft, and 1:4 rocker arms. It delivers lively power in a lightweight package, and you have complete control over this mighty motor thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. This feels nice out on the road with an upgraded chassis, front disc brakes, and modern Bridgestone Potenza performance tires.
