MCBURNIE SPIDER

McBurnie Coachcraft was a US bodywork company which became well-known through the popular TV series "Miami Vice". The Daytona Spider that Sonny Crockett and Rico Tubbs tore through the streets of Miami was a replica of the Ferrari Daytona Spider built by McBurnie and based on the Corvette. Ferrari was not happy with this and McBurnie fell out with Ferrari, which undertook legal action. This was no irremediable catastrophe for the Miami Vice detectives, as Ferrari got them a Ferrari Testarossa. Yet the cars by McBurnie are very popular, which is partly due to their excellent quality. Remarkably, McBurnie's creations were copied as well, and some of those pass for a "real McBurnie". The car we have on sale is based on the Corvette C4. It was converted at McBurnie immediately after it had left the factory. A statement signed by McBurnie is part of the records supplied together with the car. The milometer reads 17,000 miles, and, given the state and overall feel of the car, this seems very plausible. Driving in this car is a true sensation. The horsepower, the engine's toxic reaction to the gas pedal and the great V8 roar (the exhausts are slightly less muted than those of the Corvette) make this car a true thrill to drive.
