These cars were all inspiration with the 33 Stradale a big influence but instead of doing a Replica I wanted a bespoke design.

M6 Mclaren made for a couple of cars namely the Raffo Belva.

Same as the Z300S. Inspired by rather than copied from. Looks lovely. If only there was a suitable donor available now

its effectively the same wheel base as a Lotus Europa but thats it and to be honest I dont want to make any more its 11 years to get to here

Wow, full marks for persistence. A real labour of love, probably, but it could be like a marriage you can't shake off.

redratbike 5th September 2016 22:15

Very nice ..with the power to back up the looks

Thanks Guys
I am enjoying the build and coming up with solutions but getting the styling correct as per was very important
I have stuck to the late 60s theme
The doors are 906 style with Lotus thinking that is a single beam with hinge at one end lock at the other.
The Steering rack is very early 912 Porsche. this was extended to get the geometry correct - 0 bump steer to toe out on the last part of travel.
The rear hubs are also specially remade the originals badly corroded. only I had a pattern made to use ALFA GTV rear bearings and drive shaft's.
The front uprights are Fiat 124 and bigger Wilwood 4 spot calipers
Some of these pictures are quite old

au-yt - Welcome to the forum and nice car. :cool:

http://www.madabout-kitcars.com/foru...3&d=1473051586

Have you seen Axel's Dino 206 build?

http://www.madabout-kitcars.com/foru...ead.php?t=4789

Which as NeilF355 said earlier has similar curves to yours.

It looks like you have plenty of interest in your project already, so why not start a build thread and tell us all about it?

There is a section on the forum for Italian replicas:

Good luck, Paul. :)

Would love to see that glass on a a352. Plus roof

Its not a tribute to any car but a tribute to an era and you can see from the front shot that there is some similarity and that what's I want to avoid. The lowers sections of the front valance are bigger and rounder, ther will be a discrete splitter to aerodynamically balance the rear.
If I do start a thread, given I am new to this forum where would you suggest I start?

WorldClassAccident 6th September 2016 10:55

I would suggest the Italian Cars forum is closest to what you have got. I know it is not a copy of a specific car but is definitely in the style of the Dino and Alfa.

Click on this link :L http://www.madabout-kitcars.com/foru...splay.php?f=20

and start a thread there. I would be keen to see it

Hi Paul

thanks for reminding me I still have this car in my garage...

God I have to start working on this again, cannot believe it is already more than a year ago I have touched it... :-(

Anyway, I have built a Lotus bike tribute inbetween! Wonder if you have seen it already, it is published in a german custombike magazin this month!

Thanks Axel
Seems we have a similar ideas, I actually like the combo hybrid of the GT40 and the 206 Screen but what you have achieved is excellent, has taken you that long either!
Cheers

Axel 7th September 2016 08:34

You can find a full build thread under

http://www.allmetalshaping.com/showthread.php?t=12531

but you need to register, it is based on a '86 Kawasaki 600 Eliminator.

That bike is just so cool, love it, and what a transformation from what it was originally. Totally inspiring cars and bikes from both Axel and au-yt, Much respect :)

fatbloke 10th September 2016 16:37
