Tribute 250SWB 1960s Style Replica GT Ferrari Aston 3.0 LTR BMW Z3 VERY QUICK CAR!
The real deal would be £1.5 million!! Grab yourself the nearest thing for a fraction of the cost!
The Tribute Automotive 250SWB is a modern take on a classic design – it’s a fantastic evocation of 1960s Coupe supercars – with styling cues from Ferrari, Aston Martin, Pininfarina, Zagato etc.
The kit is based around modern BMW running gear/chassis, and because of these modern underpinnings it makes it a much more usable classic than the cars it seeks to emulate. It retains all of its modern refinements - a proper heater traction control and ABS etc whilst still feeling very authentic to drive.
This car is mint inside and out!
The wheels are jag spinners and are shod with a full set of new tyres. They look simply fantastic! They have a wonderful dish, and the offsets are right – very DB4!
The 3.0 litre BMW engine is excellent mechanically It goes very well indeed, and pulls like a train – this being one of the later facelift Z3s means the cars had a lot of the earlier production issues sorted. Its exhaust sounds lovely as the owner wanted to create a truly usable and sporty car. It drives very nicely, with a direct gear change, light clutch and, of course, power steering and electric windows
In preparation for sale, the car has had an MOT (free of advisories, and you’ll note that the rest of the MOT history is very clean!), and is in the tax class for a standard BMW Z3 The V5 document has been correctly registered, and now reads ‘Tribute' – something that a lot of builders fail to do and it can become a big issue with insurance and legality! There is plenty of history from before the conversion, and the car has only covered a few hundred miles since the rebuild so everything still feels very fresh. A period registration plate would finish this car off very nicely, the owner has decided to retain the plate he was going to fit, so the car has reverted to its ‘original’ registration.
BMW Tribute 250 SWB built using a BMW Z3 first registered 2000, correctly registered on the V5c as a (BMW Tribute 250 SWB)
