According to Richard Allen, in the late eighties somebody in England wanted to have a Nembo (Giorgio Neri / Luciano Bonacini) spider replica built, but not wanting a British built one i.e. like the ex-Barraclough copy 4773GT, went to Italy and met with Giorgio Neri (the Ne of Nembo) to commission him to build a body on a chassis that he would provide - 5805GT.  
Neri built up a body buck and formed a new aluminium body over this to suit the 330 GT 2+2 chassis which his workshop shortened and modified accordingly.   The instigator of the project then ran out of funds, the project came to a halt and was laid to one side in a storage area.  
Subsequently Giorgio Neri retired from work. When Richard Allen heard of the project some years later he travelled to Italy to see if it was viable to resurrect. A deal was agreed and the partially completed car was shipped back to England for completion. The completion of the car was put in the hands of Hayward & Scott of Basildon, Essex, with final mechanical preparation for road worthiness done by Neil Cornes of Cornes & Chiltern Hunt.
