The speedster was made famous by the Hollywood film star James Dean.
He owned one before his life was cut short at the wheel of a Porsche 550 Spider.
With its low windscreen and wonderful shape, it’s just a great top down thrill to drive.
Don’t expect to be anonymous whist driving the speedster,
as it gets a lot of attention from men and women of all nationalities.
Our speedster is a replica of the original manufactured by APAL in Germany.
It was manufactured and built by the factory, not in somebody’s shed,
so the quality and finish is stunning.
It’s a very correct replica with period VDO gauges,
a Moto Lita period steering wheel, it has an 1800 air cooled engine with twin Carbs,
that is plenty powerful for its 700kg.
One great feature of the Speedster is the abundance of room in the cabin,
making it ideal for weddings, as the bride
can fit “the dress” in with ease…
