Italians love the Corvette, so over the years, several Italian design houses have produced numerous versions of America’s favorite sports car. But one of the latest is the strange but fast Bertone Mantide. They introduced it in 2009, and the Mantide is a total redesign of the Corvette ZR1.
It retained all the mechanics, drivetrain and engine but had a new, lighter and more aerodynamically efficient body. This means the Mantide has a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 with 647 HP for slightly better performance. The planned production was 10 examples, but it is unclear exactly how many they produced.
