German tuning company Endora Cars has produced this interesting little number. It's called the Endora SC-1 and its based on the Chevrolet Corvette, but instead of showcasing a rather predictable GM design, it features true contemporary retro aesthetics that hark back to the Sixties and Seventies.

Endora-SC-1

Endora Cars is hoping to release the car onto the market and has released these tantalising images as a taste of what to expect from the production version. The renderings give off the impression that the car is created as a solid one-piece chunk, with large panels wrapping around the rear, and over the roof.

From the back, there's definite retro styling cues. Take the simple circular taillight design and the squared-off rear wheel arches. Endora has also recessed a black panel smack in the middle of the rear face to match the two-tone theme shared at the front.

From the side it showcases a cool low-profile stance with high rear haunches. Classic 19-inch wheels at the front and 20-inch wheels at the rear suit the design perfectly, and are wrapped in era-matching whitewall tyres, albeit with a very thin-profile.

There will be three different trim levels of the production SC-1, each powered by a V8 engine with varying degrees of muscle, and the option of a six-speed auto or manual. The entry-level variant will feature a 6.2-litre GM V8 producing 321kW of power and 574Nm of torque.

The mid-spec will feature a 7.0-litre GM V8 producing 377kW and 637Nm, while the range-topping model will feature the supercharged 6.2-litre Corvette engine producing a whopping 476kW and 818Nm.

Although no official acceleration times have been mentioned yet, it's fair to say, in top-spec guise at least, the Endora SC-1 will perform like a retro muscle car, and at least keep up with the car it's based on.
