I think they need to bring this car back as a street-legal roadster!

2010 Cheetah Classic concept:

500hp Corvette 427cu.

Here's a chop i did in MS paint/photoshop. I'm still learning photoshop

Is anyone on here familiar with these cars. They were built to compete against The Shelby Cobra. I heard a rumor that Bill Thomas is designing an all new Cheetah to compete with the Dodge Viper and new Shelby GT500KR. Supposedly it's going use the drivetrain from the new Corvette ZR-1. I know the orignianls had Corvette 327cu. V-8's. That's what I've heard and they build the official reproductions here in Phoenix.

I heard that it would be between $125,000 and $150,000 and it's completely streetlegal unlike the originals. They sell the brand new reproductions that are based off of the original for about $90,000

Pretty good work, Damien.

The Cheetah is a pretty cool car. If it wasn't for it, then I know we would have a totally different Solstice, that's for sure.
