The fuel-injected 277 horsepower six-cylinder engine was capable of carrying this mid-engine, exotic sports car to a top speed of approximately 160 mph. The car had excellent power-to-weight ratio, and just 456 examples would be built between 1978 and 1981, including 56 purpose-built racecars.
This example is finished in orange with a black interior. The odometer reads just 18,000 kilometers from new and remains unrestored. It features all the required modifications for EPA legality. The current owner has cared for the car for the past 18 years.
In 2010, the car was offered for sale at the Vintage Motor Cars of Hershey auction presented by RM Auctions. The car was estimated to sell for $125,000-$150,000. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $137,500 including buyer's premium.
