It is based on a Lola T96/50 international Formula 3000 series race car and utilizes a monocoque chassis, with power supplied by a fuel-injected 3.5-liter Chrysler V6 mated to a 5-speed sequential transaxle. With a full tank of fuel weight is reported to be approximately 1,500 lbs, and output is said to be 290 horsepower at the rear wheels.

The custom livery was inspired by the “colored block” scheme first seen on the 1988 Benetton Ford Formula One car. Like the T96/50 developed for international F3000, the T96/70 utilizes a raised nose, lateral F1-style head protection, and an adjustable 3-element rear wing. The monocoque tub is made from carbon fiber/aluminum honeycomb composite.
