There are five color combinations at your beck and call. Vivid Black, Billiard Teal, Midnight Crimson, Snake Venom, and the two-tone Billiard Red/Vivid Black. Of the options, Vivid Black is the least expensive, with Snake Venom upping the ante by $1200 over the base color.
The range of MSRPs is $26,699 to $28,799. The Vivid Black with a Chrome Finish is the least expensive. The priciest choice is the stunning Snake Venom with a Black Finish.
