Meanwhile, the door handles have been dumped and replaced with touchpads instead. Other unique exterior features include the front and rear fascia, brake cooling vents, mesh lower grille, rear spoiler, among other things.
When it comes to the engine, this one comes with the 6.2-liter V8 engine that can produce up to 556 horsepower and 551-lb ft torque.
