The suspension system has been upgraded and the modl is now sitting on 17 inch Neptun alloy wheels made by Maserati, the brakes are made by Brembo, the shock absorbers have been upgraded and the exuast is coming with variable back-pressure “dual mode” volume control system with the hexagonal shaped tips, just like Maserati models.
