    yeah its a strange addition, none of their other cars have it either. I assume the car had cooling issues so they added more vents

    displacement and # of cylinders of said twin turbo? Which turbos?

    It's nice. Needs to be cleaner though, imo. :o

    We had a Beck 550 replica at the store last year. I ended up driving it about 1 hr each way to our local racetrack for the Historic races.

    REALLY cool car to drive, you get way more attention in that than any exotic i've driven.

    But ABSOLUTELY terrifiing at speed. Anything above about 45mph and the car feels VERY light. Plus, when you are sitting next to an F250 and the center of the wheels is even with your head, it puts a little perspective in for you.

    I'd love to have a 550 Beck someday but I'm not sure if I want to risk my life that much.

    Actually I bet it feels incredibly stable. Your ass is actually below the wheel bearings, keep that in mind. You could probably take an offramp at 80mph without getting any lean.

    I do hope when they replicated it, they improved on the original flaws a bit. Fucking something up on purpose would just be stupid.
