Dyno's 147 HP at the crankshaft. Placed second overall and first in class in the 2009 SVRA enduro series. Based on the engine condition following the first season, it should be good for another season without touching it.

It is currently set up for 5'11" to 6'2" drivers. 32" inseam, but easily returned to the tall driver or shorter driver settings. The DB-5 is the latest Swift allowed in vintage competition, and very competative. The car is a very fast and reliable example. The car comes with numerous spare body and suspension parts, and three sets of Techno wheels. A full set of change gears come with the car. Also includes a good raceable set of Hoosier rain tires.
