The limited edition Equus Bass 770A, a $250,000 muscle car unveiled at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, has the attractive, yet deceiving body of a classic Ford Mustang and a technologically advanced core.

Beyond the frame, the car consists of an aluminum chassis, aluminum body lined with carbon fiber, Brembo carbon ceramic brakes, and GM's Magnetic Selective Ride Control suspension among other features that separates it from the pack, MSN Autos reports.


With the ability to go 0 to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds with a top speed of 200 mph, the Bass 770 is powered by the General Motors LS9 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine, which is also the engine of choice for the Chevrolet C6 Corvette ZR1. Additionally, the seemingly classic-looking vehicle has a 6-speed dual-clutch gearbox that delivers 640 horsepower.

The vintage appearance and advanced core technology aren't the only appealing features of the quarter million dollar car.

The driver also enjoys automatic climate control, an upgraded CD/DVD entertainment system and of course GPS navigation, not to mention the hand-stitched leather interior.

According to MSN Auto, the Bass 770 has been under development for six years at the Rochester Hills, Mich.-based Equus Automotive.

Of course, in case the $250,000 muscle car's specs are not to your liking, the company offers a customization option which starts at $300,000.

Another head-turner at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show is the GT4 Stinger by the South Korean automaker Kia.

Powered by a 2.0-liter 315-hp engine, the GT4 Stinger will feature an expansive grille framed by vertical LED headlights and rear-wheel drive along with a carbon fiber front splitter located below the bumper.


The car show, which runs Jan. 13-26, is officially known as the North American International Auto Show and has been around for more than a century. Last year's event focused on the resiliency of the American automotive industry.
