Although they’re a young company, Ares Design, founded by former Lotus CEO Dany Bahar, is proving itself to be one of the formidable aftermarket design houses with each project they do. Their latest, a 1964 Corvette Stingray, arguably one of the most iconic American cars in history, is a black beauty that showcases Ares Design’s tremendous talent and attention to detail.
A result of over 3,500 hours of work, this phenomenal one-off vehicle is a labor of love with its chassis being beefed up with new axles, suspension and an electric handbrake that comes from the Corvette C7, in addition to having the entire wiring loom replaced. Stripping down the body of the vehicle to its bare shell, any noticeably worn out parts were replaced to ensure reliable functionality. Pop the hood and you’ll find a modern 6.2 litre V8 LS3 engine with 525hp that sits on turbine wheels. It also has a burgundy bespoke full leather interior that looks devilishly slick and an Alpine 500w multichannel audio system with the speakers concealed in custom paneling, along with an 8” subwoofer. Ares Design also made a sound choice in making minor modifications to the iconic exterior, keeping that classic, curvy look. If you have some deep pockets, don’t hesitate on pulling the trigger to work with Ares Design for an amazing build.
