From the auction description:

The car sits lower than stock on Dinan Stage III suspension over a set of Dinan 18″ 5-spoke wheels featuring polished lips and Bridgestone rubber. The quad-exit Dinan exhaust system is also depicted above, and over 100 additional exterior images are provided in the gallery below. An exterior walk-around video can be viewed above.

Parchment leather upholstery is accented with a two-tone dashboard and door panels. Equipment includes power front seats, an electric tilting and telescoping steering wheel, power windows/mirrors/locks, automatic climate control, an onboard computer, and a factory stereo.

The digital odometer shows less than 34,400 miles, a number also reflected in the Carfax report below.

The factory 5.0-liter V12 was stroked to 6.0 liters at around 10k miles. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a factory 6-speed manual gearbox featuring a newer Clutch Masters clutch and flywheel and mated to a Dinan differential. A general inspection and engine oil/filter change were recently completed at the seller’s facility.

Documentation from Dinan and Sewickley Car Store in Pennsylvania accompanies the car and is pictured further below.

A test-drive video is provided above.

The accident-free Carfax shows that the car was sold new in Pennsylvania, moved to Florida in April 2001 with 19k miles, and came to New York in 2009 with less than 28k miles.
