Finished in orange with a black interior, the model’s exclusivity is matched by its track-focused performance and hand-crafted quality.

It includes a front spoiler made from CFRP (carbon fibre reinforced plastic), a strong and lightweight advanced composite material, plus special mesh-type wheels with dedicated, high-grip tires to improve maneuverability and stability.
