Backdraft Racing Black Series Roadster, BDR1477, finished in absolutely extraordinary Giallo Capri (Italian: Capri Yellow) with Onyx Black LeMans stripes. This eye-candy color combination is breathtaking to gaze upon as it radiates in the sun!

Under the bonnet of this bronze beauty lies a Roush 427R engine delivering a powerful 550 horses to propel it down the road. She has been well maintained and just had a recent oil change and service check by Radical Roadsters of Texas.  This Backdraft beauty also sports power steering, a bulletproof drivetrain, and fully custom handcrafted interior crowned with a black carbon fiber instrument panel.

Only 1,800 miles (2,900 km) on the odometer. Don’t let this bronze goddess slip away from you!
