Endora SC-1: A New Coachbuilt Corvette from Germany

|

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.

Learn to read. You just looked at the pictures and dissed the 60's styling efforts. That was the intention.
Great looking car, true to it's heritage.

To the negs,
You're lucky you don't have to be seen in it.

A fake Corvette that looks like an El Camino from some angles, who exactly would buy this?

What fucking heritage?! When did the Corvette EVER have fucking wheel skirts?! Never once in over fifty fucking years did the Corvette ever get saddled with wheel skirts!

As for you

"You knock almost every car that gets posted, except the mopar thunder turds."

You missed the parts where I tell Chrysler to go home because they aren't ready for the real world yet and to stop using wiggers in their ads? That the 200 isn't worth considering as a mid-size car but as something not unlike a horse shitting into a wheelbarrow?

You're blind.

You yanks who hate these cars,

Don't worry none this nice stuff is ever offered in america. No gun racks, cargo beds and trailer hitches. All the nice cars go to the more sophisticated prosperous countries in europe, middle east, and far east.

This reminds me of the Fiat Coupe -- remember that one? Same headlights and similar half-covered back wheel. Tail lights are a match too, although the Coupe had four, not two. This Vette-based design is sleeker of course and has an interesting 60's / Hot Wheels feel to it.

LOL! Somebody used "sophisticated prosperous countries" and "middle east" in the same sentence and wasn't typed in jest!

Sean A. said... »May 20, 2011

@ LOL
More supercars are sold in the middle east than any where else. YES I used the words together and I guess I was comparing the middle east to the USA WHICH lags in sophistication even the most backword wealthy countries in the middle east.

I wasn't refering to 'supercars' or the yanks.

I think it's funny to think anything of the middle east beyond being a anti-scientific, theocratic, human rightless vaccum.

I couldn't care less about how many high-end cars are sold there; that number isn't something that can be used as a measure of a nations sophistication or its properity. Heck, many 'supercars' don't highlight a mark of sophistication. Ferrari and Lamborghini most certainly don't, and I'm sure you'll find plenty of those in the middle east.
