Equus builds a Ford Mustang with a Corvette heartbeat

Share this Post:

Slapping an LSx into a Ford Mustang isn’t exactly something watershed; and it’s always going to be a major point of contention for both sides of the muscle/pony car spectrum.  So now, the car company Equus has a project which they call the “Bass770”, which calls upon classic Mustang style as well as various Chevrolet Corvette cues.  It’s a fastback Mustang with the unmistakable horse emblems on the grille and rear deck lid, but there is something more to it, once you look a bit deeper.

Underneath the carbon fiber-wrapped aluminum body lies the pulse of one of Chevy’s most impressive power plants–the supercharged LS9 V8.  Transferring the 640 hp & 605 lb-ft of torque to the rear end is a dual-clutch six-speed transmission, resulting in a staggering 0-60 mph time of just 3.4 seconds.
