We don’t know who came up with the idea to build this replica, but it is clear that this was a lot of work by everyone involved in the project.
In fact, it is not a kit-car but, according to what little said by the seller, a car built from scratch starting from a tubular frame which, at the rear, envelops a flat six-cylinder Porsche engine, coupled to a gearbox five-speed, both from a 911.
The bodywork, although the seller does not mention it, is most likely made of fiberglass (which would be consistent with the specifications of the original car). The cabin is stripped down to the bare essentials (for racing, not road driving) and we’re sure that, in the right context, this should be a very fun car to drive. Find it for sale here in Brescia, Italy.

I am the owner of the car…
Thanks for your attention but I can assure you that the body proportions are correct, as we used a mold used years ago for a restoration of an original porsche 906.
still famous of a famous owner in Italy. in fact, my car also has the front glass and the rear plaxiglass mounted on the real original porsche 906
the muzzle instead has been revised.
Thanks for the info. We were puzzled by the front end, however we can be wrong. Is the original car the blue one?
The tubulare frame of mine has bene copied and Is very very similari ti the original.
I didn’t likes the descriction of the disproportionate body….
All sports Cars of those years often have modifications …almost all. Differenti in many details.
Ok that was clearly a wrong impression, we’ve removed that part.
I’ve been following you for years.
you are true and serious professionals.
Thank you Matteo!
