A stiffer suspension with reduced clearance of five millimeters, 18-inch wheels and brakes of increased diameter were used.

Inside, the differences are more noticeable. There are chairs with increased lateral support, a three-spoke truncated steering wheel trimmed with leather trimmed with red stitching.

In addition, on machines with a robotic box on the steering wheel there are petals for manual gear shifting.
