Little known German coachbuilder Endora Cars has made a big splash this week with the announcement that it will build a retro-inspired supercar called the SC-1.
With the release of rendered images it’s plain to see that the SC-1 borrows heavily from American and European sports cars of the 60′s and 70′s. It’s a mish-mash of styles and eras but the most telling design features are lifted from the Corvette like the Coke-bottle profile and distinctive rear end. That’s no surprise really, considering the SC-1 uses the Corvette as a platform.
Under the bespoke body lies the chassis and mechanical hardware of the sixth generation Corvette. Endora Cars will offer tempted buyers the choice of three configurations. A base model which comes packing GM’s 6.2-litre V8 with a 325kW output, while a second option will be a larger 7.0-liter V8 with 381kW and 636Nm of torque. The range topper will be a supercharged version of the 6.2-litre V8 engine that will put a scary 482kW and 817Nm of torque to the rear axle.
Gear changes on all models will be handled through a six-speed-manual gearbox, with a 6-speed automatic transmission and paddleshifts an option only on the entry-level car.
The SC-1 also comes standard with an electronic traction control system, an active handling set-up and blinging 19-inch alloys up front and 20-inch at the rear.
Endora cars will announce pricing and a production schedule at a later date.
