Spotted in the car park of a car show today.

Debaged other than “SPYDER” on the boot.

According to the GOV car tax checker (using the reg number) its a TRIBUTE 250 SPYDER - kit using Z3 running gear

So it’s not based on a manufactured model?

Just a kit with its own design?

It's supposed to be a Ferrari 250 (voted most beautiful car ever) but apparently looks like a Volvo. Not sure that worked then :rofl:

Apparently that pile of dogsh*t is supposed to resemble a Ferrari 250 GT SWB which was never even built as a convertible, only ever a coupe :roll:

Oh I don't know; it has a certain sort of My Little Pony type charm about it.

The sad thing is this kit is a panel-over job on a Z3 so ends up heavier and more baggy than the stock car, and costs a minimum of £10k on top of the donor to complete.
