The car was made famous by its appearance in “The Wraith”, a 1986 supernatural film. The mid-engined car had a tested and confirmed top speed of 194.8 miles per hour (313.5 km/h) and could go from 0 to 60 miles per hour (97 km/h) in 4.1 seconds, with more than 440 horsepower (330 kW) under the hood coming from its relatively small displacement (especially by American standards) 2.2L 4 cylinder forced induction engine.

The car has since gained an enthusiast cult following, prompted by the fame it gained from appearing in the above-mentioned American 1986 motion picture The Wraith.
