A few changes this year, the "Wagon Wheel" wheels were replaced with a new 5 spoke design. These standard wheels could be optionally polished. The Magnesium wheel option was only $2000 this year. Dark Bowling Green Metallic and Millenium Yellow were added to the exterior color lineup, Millenium Yellow costing an extra $500. The Firethorn Red interior was replaced with Torch Red.
