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.

Shelby Mustang Super Venom

This is what happens when a German tuning company get hold of a Super Snake. Tuners Anderson Germany decided the Mustang Shelby Gt500’s exterior doesn’t represent the true monster that lives under the hood. Giving it the look of a poisonous Amazonian creature, the Super Venom Edition looks truly menacing with its flat back wrap and red stripes The red cobra insignias feature throughout, not that you need reminding what edition this is.

The great asset this Super Venom possesses is its body kit and stance. Anderson Germany added a wide body kit that includes a front spoiler, massive flared wheel arches, a carbon fibre hood vent, side skirts, and a new rear diffuser with unique tailpipes – this is what a mustang looks like after some serious time spent in a gym.

With the evil exterior perfected, the Germans went to work on the interior, using the same black and red colour scheme. Anderson Germany love carbon fibre, and it can be seen here on the console, steering wheel and gear knob.

Something Anderson Germany felt didn’t need tweaking was the Mustang’s 662-bhp 5.8-L V8 – this snake can hit 60 mph in 4 seconds, whilst offering up to 24 mpg highway.
