This car is a stunning and totally unique one-off that subscribes loosely to the 356 Outlaw philosophies. The lengthened body and chopped roof is complimented by the streamlined exterior and numerous exquisite design touches.

The disc wheels are 17 inches in diameter and are highly polished to match a number of other accents on the car, including the 718 RSK style side vents, driver’s side mirror, as well as the engine and transmission access covers. Hidden behind the solid billet wheels are brakes from a 934.
