Special Edition, Inc.

Special Edition Inc. are based in Bremen, Indiana, USA and as well as their 356 Speedster replica, also make a Spyder replica and a 904 replica which they call the GTS.

Originally marketed by Beck development in California the Speedster was sold in Kit form and as fully built cars by the American enthusiast and ex-racing driver Chuck Beck. The Beck 356 Speedster replica is now made under license by Special Editions Inc.

The Speedster Replica uses a unique tubular steel frame instead of a shortened VW floorpan for greater strength and rigidity. A huge range of options is available for the Speedster but kits are no longer available. In the US a deluxe roller package (completed rolling car less engine) is available for $30,245. I believe Special Edition will export RHD finished cars and roller packages to the UK as personal imports by special arrangement.

Special Edition also produce a Convertible D replica and all their 356 replicas are available with Subaru power. SEI are also working on an all-electric Speedster conversion.

As well as the Beck Speedster, Special Edition produce the Beck Spyder with either a 1915cc air-cooled engine or an EJ25 water-cooled Subaru engine. Production of the GTS (904) Replica has recently been moved to Indiana.

Their website clearly needs an update with the home page showing info from 2011 but it is worth persevering and all the information you might need is there.
