—Chassis, Suspension, Brakes—
She captured ‘Best of Show’ at the Coronado Speed Festival in 2013 and one more at another show until I decided not to take her to shows anymore.
She is the approaching menace in the rearview mirror of a Ferrari… acceleration is as downright scary as the license plate boasts. A bona fide beauty.
This serpent is rock solid—no shakes, no rattles… only the rich melody of the engine. She is perfect—completely blemish-free. You won’t find a scratch on her even armed with a good magnifying glass. Only 3,500 miles [5,600 km] logged. Engine has logged only approximately 1,800 miles [2,900 km].
Serious inquiries only, please!
