Equus Bass 770

I’m not quite sure where the “770” comes from as the car’s specs don’t reflect this in anyway, but I will say I love the styling of this modern/old school muscle car. Although this beast’s heart is a 640-bhp Corvette 6.2-L V8 engine, its exterior has obviously been inspired by the Mustang fastback. It does manage to convey flashes of originality, especially with those fog lamps. Some say it’s a boring rip off, but I disagree; it’s a classic looking muscle car with the advantages of modern technology.

As far as performance is concerned, the Equus Bass 770 is far from boring. Equus claim a 200-mph top speed and a lightening fast 3.4-second 0-62mph – fancy a drag race with a Ferrari 458?

To stop this beast, Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes are required and they come as standard, as are magnetic dampers. The drive train taking al that grunt is a 6-speed dual-clutch auto.

As you’d imagine, a big car like this with those impressive specs, a monster engine and carbon-ceramic brakes is going to come with a substantial price tag. Because it’s hand-built, prices start at $250,000.
