For those that like the Chevrolet Corvette, but wish it looked more like an Italian sports car, n2a Motors has come to rescue. The custom carmaker known, better for its late-50's-Chevy-inspired 789 model, has just released the details on the Anteros Coupe and Roadster.
Originally shown at the 2008 Los Angeles International Auto Show, the Anteros Coupe and Roadster offer unique styling with American muscle. The company starts with a 2009 Corvette. First, the Vette's body panels are replaced with carbon composite parts. Then, the interior is completely redone with re-contoured leather seats, leather dash, Italian carpeting, and leather-wrapped interior panels. Finally, the addition of new wheels and a new exhaust round out the transformation.
Anteros Coupes and Roadsters can be built on a standard 430 hp Corvette platform or buyers can opt to start with a 505 hp Z06. Performance packages are also available and can raise the horsepower anywhere from 525 hp to 1,000 hp or more. A complete Anteros Coupe starts at $149,500 and the Anteros Roadster starts at $154,500. Anteros Coupes built on the Z06 platform start at $176,500.
