LED running and turn signals and functional side pipes are all unique to this vehicle. The RoadStar features a $10,000 re-spray. and a custom all leather interior designed to seamlessly integrate interior and exterior colors. costing approximately $15,000 The original GM 350 V8 engine has been extensively rebuilt and upgraded at a cost of over $12,000 and is set off by a chrome engine dress up kit.
