Geared with a trustworthy 3.5-liter supercharged V6 power unit, the car deals with a total of 375hp and 410Nm of torque.

This massive power output is precisely controlled by an Xtrac 6-speed sequential gearbox, exclusive oil cooler, plate limited slip differential and neat carbon paddle shifters. Sweet.
