About “The Retta”

this is my Beretta GTZ. my dad was the second owner of the car in 1990. the first owner could not make the payments so the car was repo'd and my father then bought it and drove it as a daily driver everyday till 2004. as of now the car is getting rebuilt in my garage and i have big plans for it but not enough money :(

About “GTZ”

Bought the car in Feb of 04 from the original owners. Stock engine let go at 172k km they paid over $7kcan for a crate engine, 20k km later it blew. Warranty replaced that and they then sold the car to me with 25k km on the second new crate engine. I've since added a few things and made it my own. My future plans for this car is a T04E 57trim Turbo 15psi street 20psi track on a stroked Quad, goals of 350hp stret 400+hp track.
