    Here is a post that I made in the UK section about Daytona Replicas:-

    Given the massive cost of an original - Coys quoted me £430,000 for theirs !!

    Whats the concensus on these replicas ?

    Are they ever OK - even as a 2nd Ferrari?

    This one just 'sold' for £13k

    This one - which I thought was the better car is still available.

    Anyone know anything about this particular replica ?

    Anyone know anything about where you get the bodies from these days?

    And where do you get a 400 for £2-£3k??
