Additional Info: First cars from 1992 we believe had as a standard fit, a 225bhp 5.0 V8 Ford engines, with some even getting superchargers later on. Upgrades, such as an aluminium chassis happened in 1994/95. 1996 had even more developments with the car above, which was 70% aluminium, now dubbed the Aluminum Intensive Vehicle (AIV Roadster). In the last year around 10 cars got superchargers and special paint.
