Όμως, χάρη στους ανασχεδιασμένους προφυλακτήρες, τα ανανεωμένα side skirts, τους μεγαλύτερους θόλους, τα τεράστια, εκτός δρόμου ελαστικά και την ματ γκρι βαφή, έχει γίνει πολύ πιο επιθετικό. Διαθέτει επίσης κίτρινες και πράσινες λεπτομέρειες, διπλή απόληξη της εξάτμισης στο πίσω μέρος και ζάντες ελαφρού κράματος 17 ιντσών.
