LISTEN 01:33

This 1965 Ducati 250 GP is only a replica model of the iconic 250 GP super bike, but that doesn’t mean that it should be ignored. On the contrary, this bike is a living testament to what people will do to ensure that they’re replicas are as close to the real models as possible.

The bike was constructed to competition specs, including the addition of Ducati’s big-valve 250-cc SOHC engine. The engine comes with twin plugs, a single Dell’Orto PHF32CS pumper carburetor, a five-speed gearbox, straight-cut primary gears, and a competition clutch.

Quite a replica, huh?

There’s more too. The "replica" 350 GP also has a full fairing, Veglia tachometer, clip-on bars, rear sets, twin leading-shoe front brake, a left-side gear change, and last but certainly not least, a Conti megaphone exhaust, as well as a quick-release fiberglass fuel tank.

Needless to say, this red and silver 250 GP replica was built with the most laborious attention to detail as any replica we’ve seen in years. Maybe that’s why it was pegged for an auction price from €14,000 - €18,000 ($18,000 - $23,000) at the 2012 RM Auctions in Monaco. Actual selling price was $10,606.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio
