The car rides on custom Budnik wheels, staggered 19" in the back and 18" in front with inner wheel custom painted to match coves. The body was stripped down to bare fiberglass and blocked over and over to make it perfectly laser straight along with perfect body gaps, lines, and curves. The car was painted with House of Kolor Jet Black and finished with House of Kolor clear. Every piece of metal on the car has been either chromed or polished and has a mirror like finish. Air conditioning is provided by Vintage Air with period correct vents. Keyless entry and push button start is the beginning of the amazing Ferrari-inspired interior.

The steering wheel is custom wrapped to match the dash and seats and is connected to a chrome Ididit steering column. The gauge cluster is replaced with the Dakota Digital HDX series gauges.
