Stile Bertone Mantide, a car which is a one-off showcase of the Bertone at its absolute best and was revealed at Shanghai Auto Show, will finally see the sun (sort of!) as it’s set for a limited production of 10 units, Jason Castriota confirmed. I said sort of because it will sport a $2 million dollar price tag! So even if you can afford it, it’s not likely to become your daily driver!
After all, the hefty price tag is a part of the recipe for a super special edition. And as Jason points out they have already seen some interest from customers in Asia, Europe and America. And just think about seeing this car with its radical shape passing by your street! It’ll be the biggest WOW of all times!
The car is built upon the structure of the Corvette ZR1 so it has the power to match its amazing looks. It’s capable of 638 hp and can hit the top speed of 217 mph. Since it was unveiled there has been some beef about its shape, some say it doesn’t have the finesse of a pure Italian design, some call it ugly. It’s a matter of taste really, but you can consider it as an artwork, something like a modern art statue, only with a big V8 in it! Then it makes sense to pay its price it you really desire it.
So, you can either have two used Bugatti Veyrons or get yourself one of these, your choice!
