Rare manual transmission car with factory LSD. It is not perfect but probably the best one available. The car is garage kept and only driven occasionally. It's rarely driven in the rain and not used to haul anything aside from the occasional passenger. The interior is very clean and has been professionally detailed recently. This car is setup to provide excellent handling without compromising comfort. It is probably the most fun to drive sedan in its power range and probably more fun to drive than some other cars with a lot more power.

This car is perfect for someone looking to get into track days and only wants to own one moderately priced car. We used this car to do One Lap of America in 2012 where it was seriously outgunned on power but was also very reliable. The car has turned a 2:05.6 at the Ridge which is pretty good for a car with street tires and stock springs. I really enjoy doing track days with this car but I don't get to do track days with it anymore because racing consumes too much money and time. Since I'm not able to use it on track and on track is where I enjoy the car the most it is for sale.
