The exterior and interior of the car are finished in white, with removable decals on the exterior providing contrast.  It was treated to a full paint, in and out, in 2016 with many modifications for the track.  Front bumper cover and spoiler are removable by side-mounted latches for clearance when loading on a trailer.  The hood is raised in two spots to accommodate the higher shock towers; fore of the hood, the pop-up style headlights have been removed, openings welded shut; wipers and washer nozzles have been deleted; racing mirrors have been installed; and all lights are either removed or obscured, save for the taillights.  Staggered Fiske wheels measuring 17×8” and 17×9” are installed with competition-use tires needing replacement – P235/40R17 in front, with P275/40R17 in the rear.  The hatch Turbo badge has been shifted to the centre to accommodate the mounting of the racing spoiler.  The exterior shows signs of racing use – no damage or dents, but with various marks and scuffs on the body.  A clean Carfax from the time of seller’s purchase appears in the gallery.  It has been stored indoors at a professional facility since.

happy to show the car

Welcome to my auction. I have loved this car for many years and taken very good care of it. It served me flawlessly on the track and has been professional stored at the Auto Loft for the last 10 ears. Happy to answer any questions. Im only selling as the Doctor has stated no more driving on the track.
