Looking at the Equus Bass 770 might hurt your head a little bit due to the fact that it could look a bit Camaro-esque from the rear, a little Challenger/Charger-ish from the front, and very Mustang-y from the side.
The Equus Bass 770 weighs in at 3,640 pounds and is claimed to have a 0-60 time of 3.4 seconds and top out at over 200, which doesn’t seem too far off from the ZR1’s numbers; not that it’s being compared to the ZR1 in particular, but there’s the fact that the Bass 770 weighs nearly the same and uses the same motor and driveline, right down to the Corvette’s dual disc clutch and rear-mounted transaxle. Stopping power for the Bass 770 is provided by huge carbon-ceramic discs front and rear.
For us, it’s cool to see a car like this enter limited production, and not just because it’s fast and looks nice or has a $250,000 price tag (yes, that’s the asking price), but because it is so unique and brings together all of the iconic musclecars of the 60’s and 70’s, while showcasing amazing craftsmanship and attention to detail.
If you happen to see one of these beasts roaming the streets in the near future, consider yourself lucky because only three have been built, and another twenty have started production. And if you thought the Equus badge was a straight rip off Hyundai’s big body Equus, it’s not, but looks very similar!
