The Porsche 550 Spyder is one of the all time great Porsche racing cars. Among Porsche’s first dedicated race cars (since the 356 was first and foremost a street car), the 550 Spyder removed all doubt about what the small new German sports car company was all about. The 550 consistently gave cars of twice the displacement a run for their money, including a win at the 1956 Targa Florio, which proved that the new company, which was just five years old when the 550 first appeared, was serious about motorsport. If that wasn’t enough, the car was catapulted to stardom when James Dean died at the wheel of his own 550 Spyder in September 1955. Consequently, the 550 is often replicated, and as always, the quality varies widely from manufacturer to manufacturer.

It is fitted with a Stock Brazilian 1600cc engine , It is said that the Porsche Boxter was designed with inspiration from the Spyder 550 ,also the Boxster was Porsche's first road vehicle to be originally designed as a roadster since the 550 Spyder.

An original Porsche 550 Spyder could cost upto two million pounds and A 1955 Porsche 550/1500 RS Spyder sold for an amazing $3.685 million at Gooding & Co. Amelia Island auction setting a new record price for a Porsche 550.

You could look a million dollars $$$ in this car
