Equus Bass 770: The $250,000 muscle car

Muscle car from Michigan automaker blends old-school design with modern auto tech.

Tucked quietly in a back corner of Michigan Hall is an intriguing new car creating buzz at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. At first glance, the Equus Bass 770 may appear to be a classic Ford Mustang, but a closer look reveals a limited-production supercar dressed in vintage clothing.

This modern muscle car evokes the passion of the great designs and nameplates of the 1960s and 1970s, incorporating styling elements from a number of different models but most noticeably the silhouette and fastback roofline of the iconic Ford Mustang.

Beneath classic lines lie the latest elements of automotive technology — an aluminum chassis, aluminum body lined with carbon fiber, Brembo carbon ceramic brakes, GM’s Magnetic Selective Ride Control suspension and Michelin Pilot Sport tires.

The Bass 770 is powered by the General Motors LS9 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine that also powers the Chevrolet C6 Corvette ZR1. The 640 horsepower is delivered through a 6-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Performance specs from Equus indicate a top speed of 200 mph and 0 to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds.
