The 5-speed manual remains untouched and the car is still a front-wheel-drive number, although the suspension has been redesigned by an Australian suspension tuning expert to withstand the rigors of a full-blown rally. This includes custom 15-inch Potenza rally tires and lightweight alloy wheels sitting underneath sports springs and shock absorbers.
The exterior has also been given the rally treatment with a bright blue, white and yellow paint scheme as well as black flared wheel arches. Some of the more 'extreme' additions include four-spot rally lights, a full PCD roll cage, and Italian Sabelt race seats with 5 point harnesses. There is also a Momo steering wheel, a hydraulic handbrake, a fire extinguisher and a medical kit in case of any accidents.
Currently no work has been done to the brakes but hopefully with an engine upgrade the brakes will be at least enlarged or perhaps even stripped out altogether and replaced by an aftermarket system.
