Despite the fact that most driving enthusiasts have only recently heard of the Equus BASS 770, this North American based automaker has been developing and refining the perfect sports car for over six-years. With perfect balance, perfect lines, perfect performance, perfect reliability, and perfect safety as their primary focus, Equus Automotive has painstakingly tested their hand made high-performance super-coupe using full-scale prototypes, ergonomic design technology, and 150,000-mile road tests to provide flawless quality and optimum driving pleasure.
The Equus BASS 770 chassis is handcrafted from lightweight aluminum. The extended wheelbase and wide stance provide the perfect platform for performance driving. The handmade aluminum and carbon-fiber body is integrated with a strong reinforced steel roll-cage. The exterior of the finished product is truly stunning. Refusing to be sucked into a typical convoluted mold, the Equus BASS 770 more closely resembles a 1960s fastback muscle car than a European super car. Make no mistake however, it is definitely super.
Competition performance handling features include magnetic selective ride control, performance traction management, an active handling system, and a variable ratio power steering system. Huge “Z” rated 40-series Michelin Pilot Sport tires adorn the 19-inch wheels and a Brembo racing brake system provides the safe stops.
Power is provided via a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that produces 640-horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque. The transmission is a 6-speed manual; rear-mounted to provide superior weight distribution for the front engine rear-wheel drive 770. Starting MSRP is $200,000.
