 I love a good 550 replica (theres a bloody good one here in Adelaide), yet they could have done correct wide 5 rims instead of the 4 stud on this one. Just doesn't look right

a challenge, but not impossible, getting registered here. I think...

Interesting on the panel discussion, link below, on older real P cars: 356 etc  "sell"

Beck from USA and McRae from Noo Zuland. Differences between the two - not much, minor details.

Just proper 5 stud 356 wheels (or copies). Rudge wheels are single spinners.

Gotta be $300k starting price. As good as that guy is, it's still a replica

Brian Tanti is building an ally one in Melbourne at the moment.

  Yeah, I'm not a fan of it either

 There are some nice alloy 356 rims available, or the wide 5 covers that hide disc brakes

The McRae has an arguably better more accurate ass end
