n2a Motors, a coach builder out in Santa Ana, California, will show its latest creation, the Anteros, at the 2008 LA Auto Show next week. The Anteros uses the platform of the 2009 Corvettes and features a body that it says is “reminiscent of iconic Italian designs.” Kind of reminds us of the Ferrari California.
The Anteros is built from lightweight carbon fiber and will be available in either a convertible or a coupe. The convertible will be powered by a LS3 V8 engine producing 430-hp and a peak torque of 424 lb-ft. The coupe will be modified with Lingenfelter’s 630-hp performance package. All Anteros models feature a carbon composite body, hand-stitched leather interior 3-piece aluminum wheels and a custom cat back exhaust.
n2a Motors says that GM’s 100,000 mile powertrain warrant remains intact and that the Anteros can be serviced at any GM dealership. n2a is taking orders now with deliveries to start in January 2009. Pricing starts at $149,500 for the coupe and $154,500 for the convertible. If you want the Anteros coupe built on the Z06 platform, you’ll have to cash out $176,500. Performance packages that allow for output ranging from 525-hp to 1,000-hp are available for an additional cost.
