Porsche 550 Spyder by Book

Calling the a legend is like describing Walter Röhrl as a reasonable rally driver: an understatement, to put it mildly. In 1953 Porsche began to build cars especially designed for motorsports, starting with the 1500 RS Spyder, the then official name. The light construction with under 700 kilos kerb weight plus the powerful engine made for excellent driving performances and it was road legal, too. In this fine box, Stefan Bogner captures the classic and pure form of the Spyder and stages some of the rare original models in a large-format coffee-table book. A separate factbook contains well- and lesser-known information on the groundbreaking sports car.

Until 1957 just a little more than 100 Spyders were built, which makes the car one of the most expensive Porsches today.
