I saw this Lego kit in several stores and thought it looked interesting. I then received it as a gift and got building. There were several things that I didn't think looked good on this kit. I thought the front fascia of the car looked strange and I especially didn't like the large headlights. My solution for this problem was a more muscular front end which somewhat resembles the new Dodge Charger. Under the hood I Changed the whole layout of the engine. I felt that not having a good looking engine really cut down on the overall appearance of the model so I changed the entirety of it. The valve covers have been made to resemble a modern V10 engine. I was limited in the amount of detail I could put on the top of the engine block because of the low hood clearance. I was also limited to the underside detail because when the wheels are in full lock to one side, they touch the bottom of the cylinder heads. On the interior of the car I changed only a few things. For one I moved the steering wheel and the modified instrument cluster one stud to the right, centering it with the driver's seat. In addition the center display console was modified and the door pockets were changed to the black exterior color. On the seats I removed the grey accent plates and substituted them with a matching red color. At the rear of the car came some changes as well. The deck lid no longer has the annoyingly strange bulge in it. In the trunk I changed the light grey plates out for black bricks to match the outer body color. I also changed the taillights and got rid of the gas caps on the quarter panels. I also changed the four paired exhaust outlets with a pair of chromed central mounted exhaust pipes similar to those on the Lamborghini Murcielago. All in all I am somewhat content with the end result however there are constant changes still being made.
In addition to these changes I made a convertible top for the car. I was fairly happy with the end result although putting the top up requires the removal of the rollbars and the angle bricks. I thought it was a nice looking top for being mostly flat.
