O Saturn Sky se tornou imediatamente o sonho americano em se tratando de roadsters. Ele é muito bonito, potente, e desejável. O Sky Red Line pega todas estas qualidade e adiciona um motor 2.0 turbo Ecotec de 260 cavalos. Resultados: 0-100 em 5,5 segundos e 402 metros em 13,9 segundos.
O melhor de tudo? O preço é de apenas US$ 27.895.
É claro que se ele é muito desejável, não se surpreenda se as concessionárias cobrarem uns US$ 3.000 a mais do que isso. Ops, escapuliu….
Entre os equipamentos de fábrica estão: A/C, controle de tração, OnStar, Stabilitrak, e outros.
