Equus Automotive have unveiled the Bass 770 which combines retro looks with modern technology in a very appealing yet pricey package.

From a design point of view, it seems to blend several styling cues borrowed from the Ford Mustang, Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger. It's far from being an original design, but overall the car's appearance is very attractive thanks to its late 60s Mustang silhouette.

Its heart and soul is a V8 6.2-liter supercharged engine borrowed from the Chevrolet ZR1 which pumps out 640 bhp (477 kW) and 605 lb-ft (819 Nm) of torque sent to the wheels through a dual-clutch six-speed gearbox. This hardware arrangement enables the Bass 770 to do 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in only 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 199 mph (320 km/h).

Braking power comes from Brembo’s carbon ceramic discs, while the smooth ride is guaranteed by an advanced magnetic suspension system with adjustable shock absorbers. The cabin has been wrapped around in leather and features several goodies like GPS, cruise control, airbags, audio system, USB port and tire pressure monitoring system.

It all sounds and looks impressive until you hear the hefty starting price of 250,000 USD which can go up to 300,000 USD if you tick all the boxes in the optional equipment list.
