German coachbuilder Endora Cars has decided to dip its toe into supercar waters with a striking retro-inspired machine which it has named the SC-1.
Rendered images have just been released and it’s already clear that the SC-1 borrows heavily from American and European sports cars of the 60’s and 70’s. It’s a mix tape of styles and eras but the most telling design features are lifted straight from the Corvette like the Coke-bottle profile and distinctive rear end. That comes as little shock because the Corvette makes up the SC-1’s 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 is a larger 7.0-liter V8 with 381kW and 636Nm of torque. Topping the range is a supercharged version of the 6.2-litre V8 engine that will put a frightening 482kW of grunt 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. Keeping the SC-1 safe will be an electronic traction control system, and active handling set-up. The Supercar look is finished off with large 19-inch alloys up front and 20-inch at the rear.
Expect Endora cars to announce pricing and a production schedule at a later date.
