Screw hybrids – bring this baby to market

The Chevy Corvette has to be one of the dream cars that just about every boy has wanted to own when they grow up. It has always been equated with terms like sexy, sleek and powerful and even though many of the styles that have been shipped out in recent years have been for the most part boring it still is one of those dream cars.

Well Stilebertone’s Project M definitely throws those perceptions to the wind with their version of this classic that was revealed at the Shanghai Auto Show this past week. This sleek, sexy version is called the Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1-Based Bertone Mantide and comes powered by a Chevrolet 683-hp 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 engine which will take you from 0 to 62 mph in 3.2 seconds.

With the help of carbon fibre body panels, interior trim, seats and wheels this baby’s top speed reaches 217 mph. Here’s some more shots of this oh so sweet car just to help you through the day and once you are done those there’s a video waiting for you.


and now for the video portion of the show
