When is a replica not a replica? | Thank Frankel it’s Friday

A few days ago I was able to drive GTO Engineering’s re-created Ferrari 250 Spyder California ‘Revival’ featured on this website earlier this week. And I thought I could use this space to write a review of it, because it’s a very interesting car to drive, thanks to upgrades not just to the V12 engine and gearbox but to its very structure too, with the result that the car is not just faster, it also feels ‘together’ like no other open car whose design dates back to the early 1960s.

But then I saw the responses it received when I posted something about it on social media and thought it might perhaps be more interesting to talk about whether such cars should even be given air time. Because there are plenty of people out there who think they should not.
