I drove this car, it was impressive. Really, it exceeded my expectations. Handles like a go cart, stops on a dime, accelerates like a rocket. You could cruise all day if you wanted. 60 mph in 5th gear the motor wasn't even working hard, there's still 1 more gear to go! Tires didn't rub. Shifts so easy, click, click, click through the gears. Seats hold you in place when cornering.
EXTERIOR: Slick as teflon, glass finish black paint on a laser straight body. Literally, you could read a newspaper in the reflection. It has an awesome stance- slammed down with some very aggressive looking, staggered size wheels. Up front and there's a new chrome bumper, new trim around the headlights and a custom grill. In back there's new trim and bumper. All trim, weatherstrips and seals are new. Has a cowl hood with custom flush mount latches. The wheels are huge in back and neatly tucked under the body. They are Billet Specialty with Mickey Thompson tires. All glass is blacked out.
INTERIOR: It is completely high end custom inside. Sculpted and upholstered to the highest of standards. The floor is covered in a tight loop Mercedes style carpet. Custom made console wrapped in leather with cup holders, a compartment and touch screen stereo. Has contoured sport bucket seats front and back. Custom mini console in back. Sculpted headliner and door panels. Speakers are hidden behind perferated holes. Dash is all painted gloss red. Has a polished tilt column and high end custom wheel. Sharp looking aluminium a/c vents and knobs. Clean set of gauges. Great feeling shift handle.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Completely carpeted and upholstered to the same high level quality of the interior. Has hidden red lights. The fuel cell and Optima battery are also concealed in the trunk.
UNDERSIDE: Completely custom chassis and suspension. Up front looks like a Heidts set up with tubular control arms, gas adjustable coil over shocks, power rack & pinion steering. In back it has been tubbed. Has Ford 9 inch rear with 4.56 posi, Detroit True Trac differential and Moser axles. Tubuar adjustable suspension with gas coil over shocks. It has Wilwood drilled and slotted disc brakes at all four wheels. Has red calipers and stainless braided brake hoses. The car has custom full frame front to back. Has Viper 6-speed trans with heavy duty scattershield, hydraulic clutch and custom drive shaft. Bottom of the motor still looks spotless. Has high torque starter. Custom Aeromotive fuel system with stainless braided lines and electric fuel pump. There is a fortune under this car. It's done right- thoughtful, detailed and professional.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Turbo charged 5.7 liter LS-1 with many upgrades. The motor was completely rebuilt and blueprinted. Has LS-6 heads, ARP studs and bolts, TRW forged pistons, 10.4:1 compression, Pro Magnum rockers, hardened pushrods, Comp springs, hydraulic roller cam and Mellings high volume oil pump. Fuel is fed using Edelbrock electronic fuel injection intake, Accufab 4 hole throttle body, 78 mm Hurricane turbo and 44 mm wastegate. All this makes some serious yet reliable power. The motor is kept cool with aluminum BeCool radiator with electric fan, aluminum water pump, overflow bottle and stainless hoses. The passengers are kept cool with Vintage Heat and Air system. It has all the upgrades, polished compressor, stainless braided lines etc. There are plenty of little extras too- external breather wih oil collector, serpentine belt and pully system, billet brackets, polished valve covers, chrome alternator and more.
There was careful engineering into the build of this car, it does everything it is supposed to do. Ready for whatever mood you are in. Want to tear up the streets, it will do it. Want to cruise to a show with the air on, it will do that too. Want to make people jealous, no problem!
