The acceleration offered by this car is breath-taking. “I am still astounded by how absurdly fast it is and how quickly it comes into boost. I’ve never performed a 60-130 speed test but would guesstimate mid 5 second range with the traction afforded by the Drag Radials.”

This is the epitome of a “sleeper sedan”, always draws fantastic excitement at Cars and Coffee, and yet can be driven comfortably for hours on end. As you can tell, this car has been owned with a complete open checkbook and the $75k+ invested in car + upgrades are a testament to that.

Known Issues

  • Minor paint blemishes to be found in the photos include marks on both driver side doors, hood, and passenger rear door.
