Paint is in good condition, a few imperfections here and there, but nothing major. Body is great, no rust, no dings or dents. Car is driven very little, mostly to local shows on sunny days. Definitely a sleeper, no one expects a twin turbo when you open the hood.
Incredible workmanship with all high dollar parts. This is a one of a kind that you won't find anywhere else or probably ever again.

To answer some questions, thecar was never raced at the track, so I don't know 1/8 or 1/4 mile times. The fenders are actually painted black, I had them Plasti dipped grey, but it can be easily removed if someone prefers. The car doesn't overheat, idles fine and has great street manners. The underside of he car is as clean as the top. Thanks.
