While we love us some good old American muscle, the word “luxury” isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when we think of V8 powered beasts built in Detroit. The Equus BASS770 is the first vehicle built here in the states that’s looking to be crowned the ultimate luxury muscle car.
Taking obvious design cues from our favorite classic muscle cars of the 1960s and 1970s, the Equus Bass 770 was made in Detroit, and is much more than just a pretty face. While the tailored leather interior and high tech gadgetry found throughout the cabin is a nice touch, it’s the supercar-like performance that has us falling head over heels for this bad boy. The 2-door muscle car is equipped with supercharged 6.2 liter V8 engine that puts down a ground shaking 640 horsepower and 605 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to a lightweight aluminum constructed chassis and body, the Equus BASS770 blitzes from 0-60 mph in just 3.4 seconds. With all these supercar and luxury references, you already know this thing will be expensive, and limited. The Equus BASS770 luxury muscle car will sell for around $250,000, and will offer up a ton of customization options. [Purchase]
