The result is an impressive power to weight ratio and excellent balance. Away from the aforementioned craftsmanship, the exterior is one area that also deserves some special attention.

Finishing touches have finally been added by the aluminum pedals, a leather sports steering wheel, and a leather-upholstered, integrated sports seats. Furthermore, a new level of modern sophistication is added by the razor-sharp precision and superb grip.
