That seems like a good price w/62,000 miles. I'd be trying to figure out if the timing belt was changed= do they have any records w/ the car? That needs to be done. I'd get a tune w/ old Diablo predator being the best. So get a sct tune w/ a throttle body, which cfm= central florida motorsports has. Check the clutch & the regular things. Over 60,000 I'd change the fuel filter & plugs, air filter. Looking at the brakes & cv joints boots, checking the front wheel bearings. Making sure the car wasn't in a accident or crashed, looking at the core support & under neath the car too. They are great cars to drive. Being a used car & that means any, could perhaps use a battery, starter, alternator, t-stat, rad/heater hoses, like any used car, might need it a few months or a few yrs. I believe you'll like the svt.Someone w/ a svt could chime in & add or update what I said.
