Like in the quote above “I live for myself and answer to nobody” Steve McQueen; Now this would probably be true if you’re in the realm of purchasing this custom modern-day muscle car, ranging generously equipped at $534,000 USD and what Equus calls a Bespoke Program (your own build) starting @ $100,000 USD. This machine mocks the old school characteristic of 1960’s and 1970’s era muscle cars formulated from the Mustang Fastback. But here’s a twist that’s planted under the hood, the handcrafted Chevrolet 6.2L supercharged aluminum V8 ranks among the foremost engines available anywhere in the world. This whole car is handcrafted with 5000 man hours labored in the engine, interior, aluminum chassis, ‘Roll Cage’ reinforced structure, innovative super-formed aluminum body with carbon fiber inner. I mean the car is just the finest technology, front to back, top to bottom! From 6 years of engineering and 150,000 miles of road testing we end up with a Muscle Car of reliability expected from modern technology.
