The model can also be equipped with an assortment of optional components including forged alloy wheels and a Carbon Aero Pack that includes a carbon fiber front splitter, a carbon fiber rear wing, and a carbon fiber rear diffuser. When all the boxes are ticked, the model weighs 2,392 pounds.
Power is provided by a supercharged 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 345 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. It is connected to a "heavily revised" six-speed manual transmission which enables the car to accelerate from 0-60 miles per hour in 3.7 seconds before hitting a top speed of 150 mph.
Drivers who would rather sit back and enjoy the ride can opt for an optional six-speed automatic transmission. It includes steering wheel mounted paddle shifters which allow the driver to get in on the action.
