2011 Chevrolet Corvette New Design

The Corvette is not only a popular sports car among buyers but also among individual coachbuilders. Over the years, we’ve shown you tons of Corvette-based builds ranging from the bad-ass Rossi SixtySix and the Genadi LSR Roadster to the more recent Soleil Anadi. In other words, there’s a Corvette for every taste, however outlandish you can imagine.

The latest company to jump onto the Corvette coachbuilding bandwagon is Endora Cars, which is based in Germany. Their build is called the SC-1 and it’s styling is inspired by the American and European sports cars of the 1960s and early 1970s. Seen here in the first official renderings, the SC-1 blends certain elements of the Corvette such as the Coke-bottle profile and sweeping roof, with a sharp front nose and a unique rear end along with partially covered rear wheel arches.
Under the body panels lie the platform and the mechanical hardware of the sixth generation Corvette. Endora Cars said it will offer buyers the choice of three configurations. The basic model will be equipped with GM’s 6.2-liter V8 pushing out 437-ponies and 424 lb-ft of peak torque, while a second option will be a 7.0-liter V8 with 512HP and 470 lb-ft of torque. Sitting at the top of the range will be a supercharged version of the 6.2-liter V8 delivering 647-horsepower and 604 lb-ft of torque to the rear axle.
All engines will be mated to a six-speed-manual gearbox, while a 6-speed automatic transmission and paddleshifts will be optional on the entry-level V8 model.
The German company added that an electronic traction control and the Active Handling-system that monitors the driving dynamics will come as standard as will a set of 19-inch alloys wheels up front and 20-inch at the back.
Pricing, availability and other details have not yet been announced.
