From studying these pictures, externally the car is little changed from standard except for the aerodynamic wing mirrors and the fitting of the later style 17 inch diameter wheels. But the picture of the interior shows a quite serious attempt at shedding weight. The trim is very minimal, no wood can be seen on the dash being totally covered by Alcantara. The centre console is absent and the transmission tunnel is covered in quilted leather. To cool the occupants, a smaller air-con from an Opel was fitted. The door trim is sparse, also in Alcantara; one can even see a simple Ferrari F40 style pull cord to open the doors from the inside. There are sports seats with generous side bolsters, three point harness and the back seats have also been removed. The car was even given thinner glass in an attempt to shed weight. Initially, the car had a 500bhp 6.3 engine but this has more recently been removed and replaced with a standard 5.3 litre unit. The weight loss is claimed to be in the region of 200 to 250kg. With a 5 speed manual gearbox, Harvey Bailey sports suspension, uprated front and rear axles and sports exhaust, this left hand drive car remains unique as further cars were never converted. In a track test during 1993 against the factory supercharged Vantage, the lightweight was not only better handling, but quicker too.
The car was initially painted in Middlesex Green and was trimmed with red leather. This was later changed to Silver and the interior a more sobor black with green Alcantara
