What do you get when you combine a 60’s era Mustang Fastback, Dodge Challenger, Chevy Camaro, and Aston Martin-ish refinement, blend them all together and send them half a century into the future? You’d probably end up with something that looks very much like the Equus Bass 770. Amongst it’s peers within the tightly knit group of hand-crafted American-made automobiles the Bass 770 is a surprising breath of fresh air. It’s managed to bring back the best of 1960’s American automotive design in a magnificently refined and superbly powerful package that looks striking. With 640 Horsepower, machined billet steel accents, hand-built aluminum frame, carbon fiber inners, and a tailored leather interior…everything was taken into consideration.
Yes, current American muscle car offerings have dug back into their roots and are all now sporting 60’s inspired design cues as well and one could argue that the Bass 770 could get lost in the sea of Mustangs, Camaro’s and Challengers that roam the streets today. But who cares? The Bass 770 is light-years ahead of any similarly styled offerings when it comes to the level of craftsmanship that the Equus brand offers. Current day Camaros, Mustangs, and Challengers are the mass-market prints, the Bass 770 is the original painting. Photos via Equus Automotive.
