Video: Classic Chevrolet Corvette Will Be A 1200-horsepower Electric Hypercar
The second-generation Chevrolet Corvette Stingray was reimagined by a small Irish firm, Ava. The fledgling startup is staffed by contemporary automotive design icons - former Jaguar chief designer Ian Cullam and original Stingray author Peter Brock.
- So far, only preliminary images of the future restomod have been published, although, according to Autocar, the debut of the hypercar may take place this month. They promise to supply the electric car with several motors, which will collectively develop from 1200 to 2000 hp.
- In addition to well-known stylists, engineers from different parts of the world are working on the project - in addition to Irish and English, specialists from Nevada are involved in the design of AvHyperclassic. Ian Cullum has already stated that Av is capable of writing a new chapter in Stingray's history.
How many hypercars will be assembled and how much they will cost is still unknown. The publication assumes that AvHyperclassic will go on sale at a price of 1.2 to 2 million euros (from 109 to 182 million rubles).
- At the same time, another iconic car, the AC Cobra roadster, is being revived in the UK with the help of electric traction. The most powerful restomod modification will receive a 625-horsepower setup.
