Talking WANTED: Ferrari Dino replica

Hello kit car world.

As per the title I am in the market for a replica Ferrari Dino 246 GT.

I have found some excellent looking examples out there from JH Classics (£50K is a little out of my budget), and DeHavilland (again around £40K still out of my budget).
I keep an eye on eBay, but I was wondering if anybody knew of somewhere else I could try, or perhaps someone on here is looking, or prepared to sell their beast?

I have a top end budget of £25K but don't really want to spend that much.

I want a car that has had the interior done in the correct style too, I don't want to feel like Im sitting in an MG or MR2 when Im driving the thing, I think that would slightly spoil the experience of knock-off Ferrari ownership.

Is that realistic in my budget?

I am happy to buy one that needs a little TLC as long as the price reflects that.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers in advance everyone.

Only one I could find on ebay at the moment is this VW based Karma -

A brave project that could never be that convincing as the proportions just aren't right.

DeHaviland supply turnkey cars for 36k (confirmed at Stoneleigh). Be aware there aren't actually any 246 replicas out there, they're all splashed off a 206 which has shorter wheelbase and body. I think DeHaviland are the only ones yo market correctly as 206 rep. Anorak off!

I was going to say the Karma could be an option. The very best examples are well within your price bracket. You might get lucky and find a part built JH or Deon but will need time and money to complete.

Really nice Deon Ferrari Dino replica on ebay. Correctly registered with a years MOT.

£19,950 or offers, which seems to be very good value in todays market.

Item 163770199679

Room for a little improvement, the bumpers could do with being re fitted and a few other details, the rear lights could do with squaring up etc but otherwise looks good.

FYI CASCU's body is moulded from a 246 but yes, all the others since the 80s JH Classics DGT are from the same Dino 206 (with slightly altered wheelbase since the very first one was put on a Lotus Europa Chassis by David Mirylees http://www.lotuseuropa.org/gallery/D..._Europa?full=1 ). Unfortunately CASCU doesn't make a kit - just bodies and a chassis that replicates the Dino's (and therefore can use Ferrari 308/Mondial bits).
