Default Sienna countach rep

Hi everyone, new to the forum and need a little help.
I find myself interested in a Sienna countach for sale in Germany.
Was a factory built car with ford cosworth turbo engine.
Been sitting for a number of years and needs a complete re-furb.
Black with grey interior. Also some damage to the rear.
The sort of project i am looking for.
I was wondering if anyone hear know's of the car as i believe only 25 were made?
Not sure of a value for a car in this condition?
I have done some research but cannot uncover much in the way of detail for Sienna cars.
Also any other advice on Sienna rep's would be helpful?
Thanking you in advance. Regards Phil.

Hi Phil

the Sienna belongs to a friend of mine near Uelzen/Germany. I haven't seen it pesonally, but he has had another Sienna black/beige and that one looked perfect. He planned to put a BMW V12 in it, never found out if he has done it. I have had a Countach Rep myself 2 years ago and I have just found out it is for sale again:

http://car-special.de/countach-repli...e-rella-saier/

This one I have built myself, and the amazing details were the periscope roof (which I have never seen before on a replica), metal doorframes from the original Countach, curved side windows, original windscreen with integrated antenna and many other original Countach parts. I have never found out what base it was, but it is definetely no Saier, the Saier is just in the papers.
If I think about how much you will spend in time/money for the offered Sienna, I wonder if it would make sense to go for my old Countach which is in running condition, but that is just my 2 cents, and it depends if you want a RHD or a LHD.
The weakest point on my car was the engine. It was definetely underpowered with the 150HP Renault engine... ;-)

Hope this info helps

Best,
Axel from Hamburg/Germany

Thank you Axel for your reply. Have to say i did see your old car for sale and thought how well it had been put together. A credit to you.
One big reason for me wanting a project is so i can personalize the car to my own requirements. I want the shape but it must also have the performance to match. I also love to tinker in my spare time. Helps me to relax and a sense of achievement.
Your friend does not seem to answer his emails? He did respond to my original request but not to anything since then. I have even tried to ring him.
I was perhaps thinking it might be a scam.

Hi Phil

his name is Dirk and his email is galaxyone@t-online.de

Anyway, I will tell him you have tried to get in touch with him.

I appreciate your comments about my old Countach.
I am building for the same reasons, fun to create, to tinker, to relax, and when they are finished I sell them... ;-)

Thanks for that.
I have already registered on this forum but for some reason it will not allow me to post or PM anyone. Strange.
I would love to speak to other Sienna owners. To hear their thoughts

Post Alan Booth from Sienna Cars

Hello to all, I know this is a very late post but I've only just come across this forum.

I am the original developer, owner and operator of Siena cars when it was based in the UK. I designed and developed the car and the company and ran it for many years until we stop trading and I moved to New Zealand.

I still have the original drawings and pattern work and I now run a waterjet cutting company so considerably could produce parts however I'm sure they're all available in Europe as so many have been reproduced.

There are a number of websites who have told the story and have some facts but I still find a good deal of the facts about the development, the build and the number of cars reproduced are erroneous and at best only partially accurate.

If you want to know about a specific car please send me as much detail as possible and we will look through our records.

Happy building
kind regards
Alan
