Purchased originally from Dynamic Motorsports in Ohio, this car has only 4,700 TRUE miles.  It is loaded with options and built to drive on a daily basis if desired.  The potent Ford Motorsports 351 Crate motor boasts approx. 400hp. Needless to say; this car’s power-to-weigh ratio creates performance usually only found in cars 2-3 times the price.

 For those of you who don’t know about Superformance quality… This car is factory built and imported from South Africa.  Unlike kit cars that are made by Shelby and others, this car arrives complete with only the engine and transmission added upon its arrival in the US.  For the rest of you already familiar with Superformance, you already know that these cars hold their value better than most all replicas on the market and the fit and finish quality equals that of fine coach builders.  Here are the specifications.

 With new legislation and environmental mandates, these cars are becoming more and more difficult to purchase “new”, which is why Superformance cars are one of the most attractive investments in their price range!  You can buy a cheaper replica or kit car but you will not reach the quality, performance and overall value that this Superformance brings. Best of all, you will save thousands over a new Superformance without experiencing the increasing titling hassles.
