Caught undergoing testing in Germany, the model has a retro-inspired design with a thick B-pillar and a distinctive rear window. The car has also been equipped with a removable roof and a slender red strip that is flanked by the taillights.

Engine options will likely carryover from the standard model so expect choices to include a 3.4-liter six-cylinder with 350 HP (257 kW) and 390 Nm (288 lb-ft) of torque as well as 3.8-liter six-cylinder with 400 HP (294 kW) and 440 Nm (324 lb-ft) of torque.
