If paying nearly $57,000 for what is essentially a used C6 Corvette (non ZR1) appeals to you, then you might be interested in this custom Antero.
Produced by a California custom auto manufacturer and car factory called N2A (No 2 Alike) that specializes in designing, engineering, and building prototype, concept, and limited production vehicles for OEMs, corporations, movies, and private owners, this car is now up for sale on Facebook Marketplace in the Crestwood, Illinois area.
Believe it or not, the current asking price of $56,950 could be considered a real deal by some folks as it represents just about a third of the car’s original sticker price of $150,000!
According to the seller, the body, interior, tires, and wheels were removed from a brand new 2005 Corvette, and N2A then began working its magic, designing and installing a custom carbon fiber body coated in a “beautiful stunning blue urethane finish” and then upgrading the interior, tires, and wheels.
We like the look of the one-off body that reminds us of a conglomeration of previous generations of Corvettes, like the C3’s flat decklid and round taillights, the C2’s curvaceous rear fenders, and the C1’s rounded front end and round headlights.
Unfortunately, the car doesn’t have an upgraded powertrain and apparently retains the stock LS2 V8 engine that puts out a respectable 400 horsepower and 400 ft-lbs of torque, but with the original price tag soaring to such stratospheric levels, we would have expected something more like 600 horsepower, wouldn’t you?
On the bright side, this Antero only has a miniscule 11,880 miles on the odometer and appears to be in excellent condition.
The seller says it’s “really a supercar without the supercar price and without the problem of finding someone to work on it without paying a fortune. With the engine and transmission being Corvette, most anyone in the world can repair it reasonably.”
As he says, “if you want something really unique and special, a real head turner everywhere you go, this is the car.”
Based on what you’ve seen and heard, though, would you pay nearly $60,000 (almost the base price of the all-new mid-engine Corvette) for this car?
