Forwarded message:

I was about to advertise last winter but postponed the effort because it was clearly not the time people in the Northern Hemisphere would get inspired about roadsters.  .

Here is more information about the car’s equipment, it’s also on the website. I have created a website with many photographs and lots of information.  Attached below are some photos, the first has all the essential information printed on the image. I will be happy to supply any additional photographs
