n2a Motors has recently released pricing and details on its Atheros Coupe and Roadster. The California-based coachbuilder revealed the Atheros range at the 2008 Los Angeles Motor Show and garnered enough interest to make the exercise worthwhile.
n2a will take a 2009 Chevy Corvette and work its magic to transform it into the well-styled steeds you see here. For USD$149,500, buyers can put themselves behind the wheel of the 320kW LS3 powered Atheros Coupe; USD$154,500 will get them into the Roadster. Those prepared to dig a little deeper, can have an Atheros based on the Corvette Z06 instead, coming in at a cool USD$176,500.
Our advice - as if you care - is that if you're going to fork out that kind of cash, you might as well go the whole hog and get one of the various performance packages on offer. Ranging from 525-1000hp, Atheros will fit the enhancements during the build and retain Chevy’s 100,000 mile power train warranty.
Twelve weeks is all that's needed to complete the build once the order has been placed. The process includes all new body panels, wheels and extensive work on the interior. (If we were lining up, we'd be hoping trim colour is a choice because the interior images provided don't sit all that well for us.)
While we can appreciate the work involved in this transformation, we're not sure if we'd really want to part ways with US 150 large for it. We'd kind of prefer the Corvette actually...
