Although this is a preowned replica Spyder, it still retains an almost new look with just the right amount of patina. The paint is still very shiny but does have a few minimal road chips on the nose and a hard to see scratch on the leading edge of the front right fender lip. There is a little surface rust on some of the bolts and misc, hardware. The engine bay chassis has been touched up and may need a bit more detail. This Spyder has been owned by the current owner for the past 10 years, meaning it's a keeper. However the current owner is getting up in age and is 6'-4" so getting in and out of his beloved Spyder is the reason for selling. Please note that although Fibersteel did not originally build this car, we have sorted and upgrading this Spyder during these past 10 years. You will not be disappointedin it's appearanceand especially it's performance. All I can say is that it's awesome to look at but even funner to drive.
You'll be proud to show it and happy to drive it. This is no trailer Queen, it's a screamer. With 150HP and less than 1400 lbs, you will love feeling the pull when you tap on the gas. It's almost like a motorcycle, light and responsive....Getting on the freeway or passing is a no brainer, just step on it...
With the new 16" rims and Yokohama tires the handling and braking is amazing. This type of professionally built Spyder with all the upgrades and details is not easy to find. If you've been thinking of owning one, remember, once it's sold you may not see another of this quality and detail up for sale again.
