Proudly put together by the good people of Detroit, this all-American vintage beauty packs all the luxury of modern technology. The Equus Bass 770 by Michigan boutique manufacturer Equus Automotive is a resounding ode to muscle cars of the ’60s and ’70s. Recalling oldies like the Ford Mustang fastback, Dodge Challenger, Camaro and Plymouth Satellite, the body of the Equus Bass is sleekly crafted from aluminum and lined with carbon fiber. The superformed aluminium chassis combines strong, lightweight materials to keep flex minimal and weight at an impressive 3,640 pounds. Under the hood sits a 640 horsepower, 6.2-liter supercharged aluminum V8 that takes you 0-60 mph in only 3.4 seconds. Top speed is reportedly 200 mph and a respectable 605 pound feet of torque. The car uses a 6-speed rear-mounted dual-clutch manual gearbox at the rear. It also packs modern comforts including a leather interior, Alcantara ceiling, air-conditioning, GPS, radio with CD and DVD capabilities, a USB port, airbags, tire pressure monitoring system, and cruise control. This doesn’t come cheap though, starting at US$250,000 and costing as much as $290,000 for a fully equipped model.
