Paint and Body
Silver Metallic is the original color and was a special order color according to the original window sticker. Paint correction and detailing were just completed. There are a couple of paint touch-ups and the clear coat on the hood and fenders shows some light crazing. Paint meter readings are viewable in the photo gallery. Equipment options includes factory rear spoiler and front spoiler with integrated front fog lights. No accidents or other damage are indicated on the Carfax report.
The interior features a power-adjustable driver seat and special order full black leather along with matching dash, door panels and carpeting. There is some leather shrinkage at the top corners of the dash. Amenities include air conditioning, a cigarette lighter, and an aftermarket stereo. The original leather-wrapped steering wheel frames a 170-mph speedometer, a tachometer with a 6,300-rpm redline, an analog clock, and a selection of auxiliary gauges. Only 47k miles are shown on the six-digit odometer.
Wheels and Brakes
Fuchs 16″ wheels with black centers and anodized lips are wrapped in Continental Extreme Contact Sport Z-rated tires with 2017 and 2020 date codes that measure 205/55 in the front and 225/50 in the rear.
