The Last Edition comes with a numbered plaque on the dashboard, two-tone blue and while paint, whitewall tires, white wheel caps and tinted rear windows.

The seats and door panels are covered in blue and white two-tone vinyl upholstery. The cabin and luggage area are covered in gray carpet.

All of the cars come with a 1.4-liter engine with 77hp when fueled with gasoline or 79hp when fueled with ethanol. The only transmission option is a four-speed manual. 

Each car also comes with a certificate of authenticity.
