It is now being offered for auction in excellent condition with 52k miles showing on the odometer.
The Arctic Silver Metallic Paint is stated to be in exceptional condition showing minimal wear. The vehicle's hood has undergone one professional respray, most likely due to rock chips and typical road-going wear. As per the seller, all other panels still retain their original factory paint. A new rear spoiler mechanism has been installed and is said to be in perfect working order. This Turbo rides on a set of 18" Turbo Twist wheels that wear Michelin tires.
