Sport Speciale




A Scottsdale, Arizona family commissioned the birth of the Sport Speciale Spyder. It is a totally scratch build created by the award-winning restoration coachbuilder, The Creative Workshop, Dania Beach, Florida. A one-in-the-world car.

With modern engineering and traditional Carrozzeria build techniques, this hand built, one-of-a-kind masterpiece is a seamless fusion of style and performance. A car that provides soul and character that no modern car and few classics can emulate.

In January 2011, the Speciale was independently appraised at a replacement value of $1.5 million. Appraisal as well as all build invoices are available.

Quite simply, the Speciale is special….on the road or track…for any collection and at any concours. Yet, if the owner so desires, it can even serve as an excellent every day driver.

Completed in late 2007 after a build involving over 7,000 man-hours and two years, the Speciale was inspired by the big displacement European racecars of the late 50’s and early 60’s. The vision behind this car was to take queues from cars such as the Ferrari TR 59/60, Aston Martin DBR1, Maserati 450S and others.

The next step was to marry that style, look and attitude to state-of-the-art technology underneath the tubular chassis and hand-formed, lightweight aluminum body, resulting in enhanced performance, safety and drivability that those old racers could only dream of.

Powered by a F1 inspired Dinan Performance custom build performance BMW aluminum V12, the theoretical performance of the 2,300 - pound 6-speed Speciale is 251 mph; 0-60 in 3.6. Displacement is 5972 cu.in., 480 lb. ft. torque. Weight ratio is an amazing 5 lbs. per hp. (450 hp.)

Fuel delivery is a custom Hilborn-style AEM fuel injection. 12 injectors and stacks. Fully programmable.

Front suspension is fully adjustable, independent, dual wishbone. Racing coil-over shocks. Fully adjustable, racing anti-sway bar. Rear suspension is Jaguar-style independent rear “drop-out” sub-assembly. Indoor disc brakes with 4 coil-over shock absorbers. Auburn limited slip differential. All which deliver an extremely comfortable ride.

Brakes are (front) Brembo racing discs and calipers, (rear) Wilwood racing discs and calipers. Steering is BRT rack steering.

Although the “guts” of the car are hi-tech, the details are all original and authentic. Gauges are original Veglia, the steering wheel original Nardi, the lights are original Marchal and Carello. Switches are Magneti Marelli and the wheels were built at the Borrani Factory in Italy, as were the hubs and the knockoffs – on the original jigs that built the same Wires for the Ferraris of old.

Despite the fact that the Speciale was built to be driven, it has logged just above 6,500 miles….the owners are fortunate enough to have a stable of cars.

The Sport Speciale will retain its exclusivity, as it will never be duplicated unless the owner decides otherwise. Coachbuilder letter re: (exclusivity available.)
