Superformance, the California-based company dedicated to releasing replicas and continuations of 1960s era sports and race-cars, has announced that they’ll be rolling out a vehicle inspired by the legendary Grand Sport Corvette.
The car was originally designed with the goal of winning the GT class at the 24 Hours of LeMans, but the 125-car program was scrapped after only 5 cars were made – disqualifying them from the competition. The 5 cars were saved and kept in a collection, thankfully, but few ever got to drive them. Now due to Superformance’s hard work, you can drive something quite close to the Grand Sport. Owners will have their choice of powertrain, which includes the option for a 550 horsepower Katetch LS3 engine complete with five-speed manual transmission. Each model will also come with original style tube chassis, totally equipped with wide set fender flares, and nine-inch wide tires. You can drive this gorgeous car for $100,000. [Purchase]
