We have just uncovered even more evidence that there is a market for 21st century green super cars that look like classic 1960s Le Mans champions. It wasn’t too long ago that the Capstone Turbine Corporation unveiled the CMT-380 at the LA Auto Show. The Capstone was basically a hybrid powered Factory Five Ford GT-40 replica that charged the batteries with a compact micro turbine giving the CMT a range of 500 miles, a zero emissions mode and could run from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.9 seconds. Today we have just come across the Custom Corner Germany GT ecoVision, a bioethanol burning mid engine super car wearing a very appropriate carbon fiber front lip, rear diffuser and wing.

Although the CCG Custom GT ecoVision doesn’t offer a ZEV mode, it does run on a combination of LPG and E85 bioethanol. Powered by a 6.0 Liter V8 sourced from a Corvette, the LS series engine currently produces a total of 450 HP, and CCG is promising that a 570 HP version is on the way. Weighing in at only 2,300 pounds, the ecoVision will rip from 0 to 60 MPH in only 3.2 seconds, and while the CMT we talked about earlier could only do 150 MPH, the CCG’s top speed is 193 MPH, using nothing but alternative fuels. By combining a proven aerodynamic design with a lightweight fiberglass body CCG allows the GT ecoVision to make the most with what its got, and as a bit of a tongue and cheek environmentally friendly maneuver the super car’s standard color scheme is green; however customers can choose from any color they desire.

I am not so familiar with ethanol cars, but I think this one is good. It’s unique and striking on its body paint. The platform looks so sexy to me.

An fuel economy and environment- friendly in one in CCG!Not bad of the Horsepower speed for about 450, that’s one of the best hybrid car on my list.

It’s good they allow buyers to choose the color. I know a lot of people will prefer this one. This will help our environment. They have a very good idea on promoting this one.

Its a good breakthrough and people should go for these kind of makeovers which are environment friendly and can create awareness with that picture clear shot of green. However, If I were to choose this, I’ll definitely change the color.

I am looking forward to see this kind of innovation on streets! Congratulations to Germany for producing such kind of environmental friendly unit. Well, for your info, it was produced by CCG, and the vehicle will be using LPG and E85 Bio-Ethanol.

The real difference between GT3 and GT2 is really more to do with how supported the team is. GT3 is supposed to be for prefab racers on a tight budget.

Its nice for a show car, very unique and well done. It took guts to do it though and im sure it looks a whole lot better in person. I’d guess the V8 since the GT Challenge class is very rules driven in terms of HP and displacement.

I’m sure the Ford GT owner was much more accustomed to people with more class working on his car and trusted that anyone claiming they would tune a Ford GT would have such class.

I’m loving this tuned car, but not the paint.

The performance of this car is greatly impressive but I don’t like the color and the design.The performance of this car is greatly impressive but I don’t like the color and the design.

Some sources from the web says that this green super will cost approximately € 125,000.

Yeah I know. That’s why I’ve said that I love the performance of the car especially the system included on this Factor Five Ford GT-40 with the additional 120 HP on the CCG system. Well that’s good if the retailers will choose for the color that they want.

As an eco-friendly customization car, I really like the performance specs of this one. Well it’s the German tweakers behind this car customization, so what can you expect about it? Only good terms.
