The model was re-built completely and now features a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive layout. Under the hood it features a V8 twin-turbocharged engine that is capable of developing 1.000 horsepower and 915 lb. ft. of torque. The carmaker also offered a custom built Mendeola transaxle and Master Shift paddles, a 6-piston Baer brakes with cross-drilled rotors and also an adjustable suspension.
