A Very Unique Porsche 550 Spyder with a Gold Plated Engine

A custom-built replica of the Porsche 550 Spyder is literally “selfish” because it goes further by relocating the driver to the center of the cockpit.

The first thing to know about the car is that it is a replica of the Porsche 550 Spyder. They are not identical because the one-of-a-kind replica was modernized and designed especially for the driver.

Vintage Motorcars produces replicas of classic cars. However, the company in collaboration with S-Klub decided to put their hand to the modern classic models and this is what happened.

The Porsche 550 Spyder is painted in a brown shade of Toyota’s color palette. The interior, luggage space and the embossed underside of the front trunk lid are covered with bright orange leather. The name of the build is «Selfish», which was made in the same font as the original “Spyder” emblem.

With 200 horsepower, the single-seat speedster weighs less than 600 kilograms. Power comes from a Volkswagen Type 4 engine, which displaces 2.6 liters. This is far more than any stock version. It is interesting that the powertrain components are finished in gold. According to the project owner, the Selfish has “a sibling”. It is also a single-seat replica of the Porsche 550 but with a turbocharged Subaru boxer engine.
