$150,000 Corvette-based Anteros Ready for Debut

n2a today announced that its latest model, dubbed Anteros and entirely based on the new 2009 Corvette platform, will be unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show on November 21, with deliveries starting in January 2009. The new model is made of lightweight carbon, n2a Motors said in a press release, but also features a wide range of performance and appearance options.

First of all, the black convertible version “is built using a stock 2009 Corvette donor car,” and is powered by an LS3 V8 engine releasing a maximum power of 430 hp. The fuel consumption is rated at 16 MPG and 26 MPG in city and highway modes, respectively. On the other hand, the silver coupe variant is based on a 2009 Corvette but is customized with Lingenfelter’s 630 horsepower performance package.

“Each Anteros takes approximately 12 weeks to build from the time of order. n2a Motors starts by removing the donor Corvette’s body panels
and installing the new carbon-composite Anteros body, a process that takes nearly 800 hours for n2a’s coachbuilding craftsmen to complete,” n2a Motors said in the press statement.

Each model comes with a fully customized interior, with leather and Italian materials among the most luxurious elements. For example, Anteros has re-contoured leather seats, leather dash, Italian carpeting and leather-wrapped interior panels.

And now, the prices. Unfortunately, all these luxurious features increase the overall price of the car, with the base variant available for as much as $149,500. The Anteros Convertible is priced at $154,500 while the Coupes, based on the Z06 platform, start at $176,500. However, the price may also be increased in case the buyer opts for a performance package providing up to 1000+ horsepower.
