Seems to have been inspired by Jan Taraszkiewicz's DOES200.
Beautiful build. IMHO is a steal at $140k.
Yeah has been on ebay for a bit last month too. Used to be Steve's Pantera where we did a Group 4 Double Trouble photo shoot for PI and also a Bad Boys photo shoot with 3 Group 4. Subsequent owners made a few changes on his car since back in the day & lightened up the color somewhat from when Steve had it. Nice car but Steve always complained the car scared him to death due to poor handling of the car with the heavy engine.
It's just a spectacular car all around. Is that color GM Black Cherry?
I would go so far as to suggest that it is not the weight of the engine but a radical 700HP build that isn't suited to the street. So many builders focus on HP and give no consideration to suspension, handling and braking.
