Bass770 by Equus a newly launched muscle car

This is the first model produced by the Equus Automotive group -building high performance  machinery. The company was  started by a group of muscle car enthusiasts that wanted to take their chosen sport to a new level on their terms. They  felt that there was an untapped market of prospective clients out there that would be interested in driving a newly designed hand built muscle car. This is the starting point and first offering from this group, the Bass770 coupe, able to seat you and three friends.

BASS

First glance at the sheet metal makes you think that it looks a bit like a retro Mustang coupe, possibly a 1968 Mustang GT that someone has done some custom fiber glass work on.  But under that carbon fiber and aluminum body is a newly designed muscle car sitting on an aluminum racing chassis that has undergone some modifying for legal street use. You hear it and you see its sitting low, raked, and with a  sloped nose you can tell this is a no nonsense car that’s meant to go and your right it does go quick.

The supercharged 6.2 liter V8 engine is the same as in the Corvette ZR1 which puts out 640 hp and puts 602 lb-ft of torque to the wheels at 6,500 rpm. The console houses a shift stick for the six speed manual transmission equipped with a heavy duty twin-plate clutch and sorry, no automatic is available.  With this power train combination Equus claims the Bass770 can accelerate from 0-60 (97 km/h) in 3.4 seconds and can achieve a top speed of over 200 mph or 320 km/h if you perfer metric. Who would have expected that a marriage of Ford lines and General Motors could have such a mutually beneficial relationship?

This custom built automobile is basically equipped with non fade carbon ceramic brakes  by Brembo sporting six piston calipers activating the front disks and four to the rear for guaranteed stopping ability. The aluminum chassis rests on the new and widely acclaimed “Magnetic Selective Ride” suspension control system by General Motors. The 19 inch rims are mounted with Michelin Pilot sport tires  255/40  in front and 285/40 rear  so you can ride over road irregularities in comfort. The driver assistance items include traction control and variable ratio power steering. Safety is important and the basic offer comes with front and side air bags included. The interior is not like your basic showroom floor mass produced vehicle but it is still well equipped with leather seats, a GPS for navigation, tire pressure monitor, cruise control, and a CD/DVD  equipped stereo that also has a plug for your USB.

The bass price for the Bass770 is around the $250,000.00 U.S. range but depending on the finish outside, the upholstery choices on the inside, and possible options available this smooth looking automobile could hit the $290,000.00 mark without a problem.  Should you decide to put your order in there will be a four month wait while the factory custom assembles your unique package. Equus is filling orders now bound for Europe, the Middle East, and of course  the good old US of A.

      Tim I think you got it-the reincarnation of AMC is the Equus

  3. I love it! Looks like a newer 70s cuda, with a 65 fastback rear. And it looks aggressive!

  4. Its got 2011 camaro headlights. No its not cool honostly. Only camaros have those. My opinion is. No muscle car.
