Only 250 vehicles were built, with the ’95 edition varying greatly from its predecessor. Requests for a larger engine were granted, with the ’95 offering a 5.8L V-8. Another racing modification made was for more fuel capacity, as a 20 gallon Fuel-Safe™ fuel cell was included. Heavy-duty progressive-rate springs improved suspension, thicker stabilizer bars were added, and a front strut tower brace was also included to enhance structural rigidity. To handle the torque of the more powerful engine, a Tremec™ five-speed manual transmission was installed. External changes included the installation of a hood tall enough to clear the engine and induction system and the fog lights were omitted along with the AC systems, power windows, and rear seat assemblies. This car has run with the SCCA (ITE), and the cars original logbook is included with the sale of the car, Numerous Kenny brown suspension mods were done to this car, extreme bracing, custom valved adjustable shocks front and rear, caster camber plates, quick shifter, track it rear suspension package and more, 3:55 rear gears, SCCA approved rollcage and adjustable Corbeau drivers seat.
