The Equus Bass 770
There’s something about those 60s-era muscle cars still resonates with drivers today. It’s the combination of tough, muscular styling with brute-force horsepower and performance that still captures the imagination of drivers 40-plus years later. Unfortunately it’s getting tougher and tougher to find first-generation muscle cars that are still intact and drivable, and the ones that are left are getting pricey. The modern Challenger and Mustang manage to rekindle the same fires, with modern-day emissions compliance, safety and dependability (and performance that matches their long-ago kin). Still, for some that’s just not quite enough. The answer?
The Equus Bass 770.
The Bass 770’s looks evoke the Mustang, Shelby GT500 and Dodge/Plymouth muscle from years ago, with a new-from-the-ground-up 6.2 liter supercharged aluminum V8 that churns out an incredible 640 horsepower and 605 lb-ft of torque, for a 200 mph top speed and 0-60 in a blistering 3.4 seconds. The Bass 770 incorporates other advances like an aluminum frame, magnetic selective ride control, active handling system and much more.
Inside, you’ll find a sexy leather interior and a dashboard design that calls to mind Sixties performance cars, with a 2 + 2 seating arrangement and an incredibly labor-intensive attention to detail throughout. The Equus is a very limited-edition supercar with true supercar performance.
There’s one pretty serious catch, however…a $250k pricetag.
