1. All specifications and pricing are preliminary based on current prototype and are subject to change. Customers with deposits shall be notified of any such changes and will have the option to have their deposit refunded if changes are not acceptable. A deposit guarantees price no higher than MSRP advertised on this site at the time of deposit (however any subsequent price reduction prior to delivery would apply).
2. Pricing is for complete, ready-to-drive cars and includes a brand-new engine. Non-metallic paint is standard, other optional finishes available.
3. Cars are intended for recreational track use only. No compliance with regulations for street-legal vehicles is either intended or planned.
