Of course this is the car that hopefully will give DNA Automotive volume in the states. ...Expect better than ever panel fit and finish too!
Give Barry DNA USA a call for pre launch orders.

What a shame to choose one of the less attractive Ferrari models. My own preference is the 275GTB/4 and you can follow the progress of my build which was inspired by the Tribute Automotive choice of a BMW Z3 on this forum. .

Less attractive? By who's standards? If I remember from reading on another forum this came about because a customer wanted it and they built it. But the response was very good and they decided to put it into production

Standards? No. Opinion? Yes. "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." It seems to me that most enthusiasts prefer the 250 GTO because of it's illustrious racing record. But then again, that is only an opinion .......

I think it looks good. But as you said beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I am going to wait to see what it looks like painted, all the chrome on it, etc .

The following package prices are to be announced soon

• CHROME GRILL X 3 PACKAGE

• CHROME BUMPER/ OVERRIDER PACKAGE

• LIGHTING PACKAGE

• WHEEL AND TYRE PACKAGE

These packages will be sold separately to aid builders to spread the cost.
People on a tight budget may also source various parts new/ second hand ( ebay? ) –

• Front lights - classic mini

• Rear lights- early MGB

• Wire wheels/tyres- people have used Jaguar ones on the BMW Z3 in the past

We have managed to offer this at an affordable price but please be assured this kit is of DNA’s usual top quality and will be a joy to build and finish perfectly.
Deposits of £1,000 are being taken now so if this is something you would be interested in please let me know.

kits will be available the beginning of February!

0121 326 8800

info@dnaautomotive.com
I know there are months before its finished but can we have some better photos of it please.
The Gel coat looks thick and shiny and DNA do make quality kits but it does come at a hefty price.

Add a decent donor and all the kits, paint and details and your over 10k before you know it

Hey Danny,

I do not know what Tribute charges for what they offer. It is also hard to tell if what DNA is going to charge if a Hefty Price . I have no idea what the quality of a DNA kit is compared to a tribute kit.

That's odd. The kick up of the rear wing top just behind the door is much more pronounced on the grey car in DNA's workshop than the red car with the "K9" number plate. Can anyone explain that?

Could it be the red one "K9" is actually a 250SWB kit? See http://www.oldandyoungtimer.com/onde...250-swb#photo4

The red 1 with K9 numberplate is tribute automotives swb. Its yours for half the price of the DNA are charging for their 60s inspired kit.

What's with all the DNA hate? Does it really matter what they charge for there product? At the end it's up to you to decide which one you want to buy.

Again I don't know what the quality of either is but would you pay a higher price for a kit if the low cost one was going to take 100 hours to make fit right? No saying that's the case just trying to understand why it matters how much dna is going to charge.
