Developed by the newly established Equus Automotive Company, the new Bass770 is a car inspired by the muscle cars of the 1960’s and 1970’s. Unlike these muscle cars, the Equus Bass770 features all the modern technology that they lacked. You may remember the Singer 911, which was one the first model to combine these elements, and the Bass770 is the newest arrival to this class. It is pretty obvious that the Equus Boss770 was inspired by the fastback design of the earlier Ford Mustangs, but it is filled with modern features, like a bespoke, aluminum frame and body, a tailored leather interior with Alcantara and carbon fiber, and a 6.2-liter, LS9 V-8 engine taken from the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1.
Buyers can order the Equus Bass770 in its base setup or in one of its six different series — Accent, Accent Plus, Design, Design Plus, Edition and Collection — and prices range from $253,000 to $290,000. The company is also offering a dedicated design program that allows customers to create the model of their dreams.
