This very low mileage Backdraft Racing roadster just now available for you! This serpent is in superb condition and sports only 2,800 miles [4,500 km] on the odometer.  She has been gently driven and well maintained. That eye-candy ‘Black Magic’ metallic paint [complemented with ‘Gray Ghost’ LeMans stripes and Guards Red quarterstriping] radiates in the sun and the custom red stitching on the upholstery sets this reptile apart from the rest.

Recently serviced here at Radical Roadsters and she’s ready to hit the road. Don’t miss your opportunity to possess a well-sorted, low mileage, extraordinarily clean Backdraft Roadster.
