Bright orange, stretched fenders, loud exhaust. Driving down the road, everyone stares. While on the outside it may look and sound like a racecar, on the inside it feels far from it. There is still air conditioning and the Recaro seats are both heated and ventilated, a huge luxury in the Arizona heat.
Out on the open road, the steering is darty and eager to turn in. The vehicle feels taught, with no hesitation on initial turn-in. Planted through undulations, bump steer is well controlled. Using the brakes requires a lead foot just like any racecar. Once proper pressure is applied, the stiff brake pedal allows you to precisely place the vehicle on top of a dime.
Rowing through the freshly rebuilt 915 transmission, each gear is exactly where you would expect it.
