No I guess it was not.

Only 100 where made and they where drag race only!

But one bad ass car non the less.

smile As installed in the Thunderbolt, the engine was (like all US cars, due to insurance regulations) conservatively rated at 425 horsepower (317 kW) at 6000 RPM; estimates placed the actual output was close to 600 horsepower.(450 kW)

I don't remember them being street legal at all...Don't ya love how they "got over" on all the insurance companies with the H/P ratings?...lol They all did it too...Corvettes, camaros, Torinos and especially the Mopars with their Hemi's!
