00:08 COMM: The Ferrari 250 GTO is one of the most
desirable cars ever produced.
00:17 COMM: Just 39 were built between 1962 and
1964. And they’ve sold at auctions for up to 38 million US dollars. This replica, however,
was built in a chicken shed in New Zealand. And could be worth over a million dollars
in its own right.
00:39 COMM: Rod Tempero has been fixing and restoring
classic cars for years in his workshop. And more recently he’s taken to building perfect
replicas of otherwise unattainable classics.
00:50 COMM: Today he is handing over his latest
creation to another satisfied customer.
00:56 JOHN: When I asked him “Can you build a
250 GTO?”, he looked at me as if to say “Of course.” No car is too difficult for
him to build.
01:02 JOHN: Does all the research and he does all
the hard work, and they are perfect. They are as close as possible to the original cars.
01:10 COMM: Once the research is done, Rod and his
team constructs a wooden buck as a perfect template for the body work. From there the
whole process is done by hand.
01:20 ROD: Everything we do here is eye and touch.
There is not a lot of machining as such. It’s an old fashioned way of doing things.
01:29 COMM: Doing things in this way takes time.
But neither Rod, nor his customers mind.
01:36 JOHN: For us the fact that it has taken us
4 years to get to this stage is almost irrelevant. Part of the buying the car for us is, in getting
the car built, is the priciest of it. You are just buying this out of a kit and you
put it together yourself then it doesn’t have the appeal.
01:51 ROD: Things are changing quite quickly, you
know, you’ve got 3D computer programs now that will technically do this stuff but I
think it loses a lot of its coolness by putting it through a machine.
02:02 COMM: The finished car has a Ferrari 365 4.4
liter v12 engine. Providing 320 brake horsepower at 7,500 rpm.
02:14 COMM: It can reach a top speed of almost 170
miles an hour. And it can go from 0 to 60 in just 5 seconds.
02:21 COMM: Rod’s cars have featured on the TV
all over the world and have been bought by international collectors, many of them repeat
customers.
02:34 JOHN: Building these cars, he loves it. You
can tell by the quality of the way it comes out and he won’t leave anything out that
is not up to 100% perfection.
02:45 ROD: I must be doing something right if they
come back here.
