SUPERFORMANCE LAUNCHES COMMEMORATIVE EDITION of their MARK-III -  To celebrate their tenth birthday in the U.S.,  Superformance International is launching a Tenth Anniversary Diamond Edition of their Mk III replicar. The component vehicle, now on the Hi-Tech Automotive assembly lines in South Africa, will be available from US dealers from late April.

With Hi-Tech recently having expanded its capacity to 80 units per month, scheduling the additional volume that is required for the Diamond Edition poses no problem.

"We believe our customers will want to be associated with this landmark in the history of our Company, so we will make available a limited number of these specially equipped vehicles",  according to Ronnie Kruger, CEO of Superformance International.

The Diamond Edition will be available in two colors only -
Dark Silver and Amulet Red, both featuring silver stripes with bordering silver pin stripes.

"These unique commemorative editions will really stand out in the crowd. The two colors are new to our  range, as are the dark grey leather seats with silver piping and matching dash and door trim".

The unit will come equipped with silver ceramic coated headers and side pipes of the buyers' choice, twin fender mirrors, full bumper decorations, glove box,  an engraved polished aluminum shifter knob, Tenth Anniversary Diamond Edition embroidery on the seat backrests and on the sides of the soft top, and a Diamond Edition commemorative plate on the dashboard. 

"The retail value of the accessories that are fitted as standard on the Diamond Edition makes this special anniversary model very good value for the MSRP of $41,900", said Kruger.

As soon as the first fully optioned Dark Silver and Amulet Red units come off line, photographs of the Diamond Edition component vehicles will be published on and on the websites of all Superformance dealers.

The first Superformance Diamond Edition Mark-III, chassis # 1910, is currently at the Body Finalization Point in the factory, due in the paint shop March 8th. Below are the paint color swatches the factory couriered this week for approval by Superformance International in the U.S. The colors shown are the unique Dark Silver/Brilliant Silver (for the stripe), and the special Amulet Red.
