Luxe Looks Good on American Muscle — The Equus Bass 770

EQUUS Bass 770

Style doesn’t end with fashion — in fact, some of the most inspirational objects appear outside of clothes themselves. Of late I’ve been inspired by sports cars, especially of the classic American muscle variety. I recently came across the Equus Bass 770 and was surprised by this hybrid of classic American style and the high-end touches of a luxury vehicle.

What’s not to love about vintage throwback style — the car has the striking silhouette of a 1960s fastback Mustang. And it’s fast — the 6.2L supercharged aluminum V8 gives the Bass 770 quite a kick (that’s the same engine as the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1). The car goes 0 to 60 in 3.4 seconds, putting it at Ferrari status in terms of speed (similar to the 458 Spider, according to Top Gear).

Equus says the car sounds “characteristic of 1960’s and 1970’s muscle cars, easing from soft, elegant breathiness when cruising to a raging growl when the beast is unleashed.”

The car is a new take on the great classic muscle cars. Similarly to what Ralph Lauren did to create high-end American fashion, Equus is elevating and inspiring us with a luxe, vintage twist.
