Eadon Green Zeclat Is A Corvette C7 In Weird Retro Drag

If you think that Eadon Green’s Zeclat is the type of car that’s meant to waft along on country roads like some type of bloated grand tourer, think again, because this is a completely different type of animal.

We might just be looking at one of Geneva’s weirdest supercars in the Zeclat. It’s powered by a naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8 engine, which allows it to get from zero to 60 mph (96 km/h) in a blistering 3.6 seconds, thanks to 460 HP and 465 lb-ft (630 Nm) of torque.

And yes, we don’t need to look that close in order to see that it’s based off a Corvette C7 wearing a custom exterior body. It’s low, wide, and (supposedly) styled after aero cars created in the 1930s by French coach-builders such as Figioni & Falaschi, Bugatti, Chapron and PourTout – though, we’ll leave you to tell us if it lives up to those names…

Inside, the Corvette C7’s cabin is unchanged featuring the familiar driver-oriented cockpit, with hand-stitched leather, carbon fiber, piano black glossy surfaces and polished aluminum here and there.

Aim it at the horizon and the 460 HP Corvette LT1 V8 unit will “convert power to speed in a safe and controllable way,” says the coachbuilder. Meanwhile, the near 50/50 weight distribution, performance traction management, electronic limited slip differential and launch control system all play their part in making this car enjoyable to drive. Purists can even substitute the Zeclat’s 8-speed paddle shift automatic for a 7-speed manual gearbox with Active Rev Match – a system for smooth gear change throttle blips.

There are five different running modes to choose from: Weather Mode, ECO Mode, Tour Mode, Sport Mode and Track Mode – their functions being pretty self explanatory.

Performance aside, potential buyers will be glad to know that, like the Corvette, the Eadon Green Zeclat has some decent connectivity options too, such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Another tech-related function is the head up display, available with three different views.

    So how much is this monstrosity? Seriously have to question the sanity of anyone that would put their hard-earned (or even illegally obtained) money into something this horrendous.

    The paint job is cool

      While I feel this color that became popular in the 1990’s for a minute should’ve stayed there. If I never see another car in this color it won’t be too soon. lol.

    Weird is correct. I like the paint, though.

  • SteersUright

    A great idea likely just gone very wrong.

  • Didn’t Eadon Green once saying they gonna have in house engine. Now they are just rebodied Corvette into much uglier Morgan.
