Equus Bass

American muscle vehicle. Made by hand in Detroit, Michigan, the birthplace of the American automobile industry. Probably the biggest surprise of the 2014 Detroit auto show was the news that a third new automaker has sprung up in the greater Motor City area and produced three completely hatched examples of their new model almost totally from scratch without any fanfare.

The 2015 Equus Bass 770 Is A Stunningly Beautiful Automobile with A Retro Design.

The 2015 Equus BASS770, a fully customized homage to the muscle cars of the late 1960s built by EQUUS Automotive in Rochester Hills’s suburbs, was born in this cradle of steel and flames. In October 2013, the specialized automobile manufacturer began accepting orders for its legendary coupe.

The 2015 BASS770 is the culmination of a longtime fascination with authentic muscle cars from the 1960s and 1970s. The front appears to be a 1967 Mustang with a 1969 Shelby GT500, while the rear appears to be a Holden Interceptor with quasi-1969 Charger taillights. The exceptional allure of the renowned beauties, propelled by their distinctive fastback design, continues to captivate and enchant to this day. As a brand-new muscle vehicle incorporating the finest American technical expertise of the 21st century, the 2015 Equus Bass 770 proudly establishes a new standard in the international luxury automobile category.

Equus Automotive Inc. worked on the Bass 770 project for six years before its introduction in 2015, aided by a staff of seasoned vehicle aficionados. The 2015 BASS770 focuses on combining the finest American innovations of the past many decades to build a true DREAM automobile. Combining the real feelings of historic muscle cars with the dependability of modern technologies.


The 2015 Equus Bass 770 includes a mind-boggling powertrain as standard equipment.

This one-of-a-kind work of art is powered by a custom-built 6.2L supercharged aluminum V8 engine. The automobile is propelled by a 640-horsepower engine. A tube-and-tub aluminum chassis lurks beneath the skin, resembling a race car as opposed to a production vehicle. The curb weight is a modest 3,640 pounds. A rear-mounted, six-speed manual transmission with two clutches delivers drive to the rear wheels. The automobile does not include an automatic transmission. The exact efficiency of this powertrain meets the strictest pollution standards.

This contemporary muscle car is supported by a handcrafted aluminum extrusion chassis with super-formed floor panels and high-strength steel. Among the characteristics are a racing-inspired roll cage (integrated into the aluminum-carbon composite body) and enlarged energy absorption zones. The aluminum chassis is designed to achieve the optimal balance of lightness, agility, and handling precision. The rear-wheel-drive, front-mid-engine configuration offers the ideal weight distribution for agile handling. The long wheelbase and wide tracks provide perfect stability at all speeds. Carbon-ceramic brakes provide the optimal balance of performance, stopping distance, and durability. Magnetic suspension technology allows the wheels to hug the ground. The 2015 Equus Bass 770 has a 0-60 time of 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 200 miles per hour.

The interior feeling of the passenger cabin is the product of combining modern ergonomics research with the design spirit of muscle car cockpits from the 1960s and 1970s. These technology and comfort-related studies have produced a thrilling new driving experience. To achieve the desired impression, the interior design and leather upholstery are personalized. A few aspects appear somewhat familiar, but the interior as a whole is entirely original.

The various technological components are controlled by old-fashioned toggle switches, and the air conditioning controls are concealed behind a chrome bezel that resembles an antique radio. A touch-screen Alpine aftermarket device controls the radio. The vehicle is equipped with airbags, and crash testing was conducted digitally on a computer; however, real-world testing is still pending. You name it: extreme luxury refinement or sporty lightweight race preparation, body enhancements or an entirely new design, classic muscular appearance or contemporary artwork painting, unique body color, and rare materials…

In addition to customized vehicles, the carmaker now sells Bespoke coupes. During a customization program, a customer will be accompanied by a trained designer who will fulfill their deepest desires. Customers will have limitless ability to make their BASS770 ownership a once-in-a-lifetime experience, owing to a global network of the finest artisans, artists, and performance experts.

The Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price for the 2015 Equus BASS770 coupe was$250,000. Customized extras cost an additional $50,000.
