Strangely enough, one of the most American cars to be released to the general public has one of the least American sounding names I've ever heard. Does the name Equus honestly bring to mind tire melting V8's belching white smoke and roaring down the road at full tilt? Regardless of whether or not the name evokes the good ol' days of classic muscle, this thing is fantastic. They say they are trying to bring all the best parts from all the most popular classics into one modernized, badass pro-tourer. It comes equipped with a 6.2L supercharged V8 good for a solid 640 horses. You would never guess that it has magnetic suspension with ride control, a 200 mph top speed, and ceramic disc brakes to make this a seriously wicked sleeper. Well, perhaps "sleeper" is an inappropriate term to use in this case, but I was expecting it to have somewhere near 770 horses, what with it being named as such. Curiously, I can't seem to find out why they called it the Bass 770. It's a 6.2L V8 with 640hp, where does the 770 come in?
Many people seem to think it's a half-assed attempt at re-creating the Eleanor Mustang, but I think it's an excellent work of art. There are elements of the Road Runner, the Challenger, and the Mustang all throughout the car. How could you go wrong?
Here's a video demonstrating the overwhelming beauty of the car. Enjoy.
