    Hi dear members,

    im relatively new to the replica world but my dream to own a Ferrari 500 mondial is relatively old.

    I won’t be able to purchase a real one. So I would like to get one build on a donor car. Would an Alfa Romeo Giulia 1300 with an extended wheelbase and chassis work as a donor car ? I could use the same motor.

    Does anyone have recommendations where I could commission this project ?

    Hi Tim, I think that particular Ferrari's engine is what makes it the marvel it is. I can't help but to think that Aurelio Lampredi was influenced by the Offenhauser Indy when he designed his motor. It's something I would explore if I wanted a Mondial-like motor.

    2.0l Alfa Spider 105 is the same capacity as the 500 mondial. The mondial is the same engine type as fitted to the later 500TRC. For me if it was a choice to build a mondial or 500TRC I would always pick the TRC.

    DK Engineering made a small series of 500TRC replicas with V-12 engines. They are beautiful, in my opinion.
