Speedster 356 Replica
This is one of our very own Pilgrim 356 Speedsters. Therefore, it will come with our own Manufacturer’s warranty. Built-in 2010 and has only had two owners from new. The car has only covered 3287 miles. It was last in the hands of a family who are Porsche collectors and it has been kept in their heated garage whilst in their ownership. The only reason for sale is that they have purchased a brand-new Porsche Taycan, the new electric sports car. This will be delivered soon and unfortunately with all their Porsche collection something had to go to make room, so we were fortunate to buy it back.
This speedster was painted in Porsche Metallic black which contrasts superbly with the cream leather. The speedster comes with a retractable mohair convertible top which is easy to attach in black. This can be left on the car or popped off completely. Fitted with all the period-correct gauges and beautiful steering wheel. This speedster also has the rare electric window option which with the heater on always makes the ride a little more comfortable.
Mechanically the speedster has front disc brake conversion and fully adjustable suspension. The engine is a rebuilt 1641 cc with twin dellorto carburettors and an electric ignition giving ample power through the gears and reliability. The gearbox/differential has also been modified to a 3.8 diff which allows for cruising on the motorway. As the first owner enjoyed using it on several continental tours of France and Belgium. If you would like to visit our factory and see for yourself our speedsters and Cobras being made and possibly take this beautiful speedster out for a ride please contact us at Pilgrim Motorsports the details below
This speedster has been through the Government DVSA Test for roadworthiness and safety. Which means that it is registered correctly as a Pilgrim. NOT a VW convertible!! Speedsters which are REGISTERED AS VW CONVERTIBLE are incorrectly registered and are not legal on the roads of the U.K. If you were to have an accident you will not be insured and if you want to sell the car in the future any Replica dealer or Manufacturer will not buy it, as it has not been tested by the DVSA IVA scheme. If it is registered as a historic vehicle this will also not be valid in the above cases. Buyer beware. We have seen a recent spate of incorrect new cars being brought in for work at our factory and these cars are not built to the standards they should have been and will definitely not pass an I.V.A safety test which is their only option in order to have a road-legal vehicle. If in any doubt, please call the DVSA the details below. Or if you wish to discuss please call ourselves and we will be happy to discuss in more detail. We have been building these for over 20 years, so we believe we can give good advice on this subject.
