SV Motor Company 9 Competizione - Click above for a high-res image gallery

Italian style and American power -- it's a match made in heaven. The Iso Grifo of the '60s and '70s was birthed from this blissful union, along with more recent collaborations including the Giugiaro Mustang and Bertone Mantide. Upstart San Francisco coachbuilder SV Motor Company believes in the formula and and has officially released details of its upcoming 9 Competizione sports car. We previously reported on the car last month, but this is our first look of the Real McCoy. Based on a Corvette C6 and utilizing the LS3 powertrain, the 9 Competizione features Italian-designed carbon fiber bodywork that lowers the curb weight to just 3085 lbs. Performance figures are scarce, but SV claims the car can pull 1.03g and brake from 60-0 mph in 107 ft.

In typical coachbuilt style, the 9 Competizione offers a wide range of personalized options including 25 exterior color choices, multiple wheel options, and several interior colors and materials to choose from. Customers can even pick five different brake caliper finishes. SV has boldly capped production at 1,000 units, and while pricing has not been announced, the company claims the 9 C will cost no more than $100,000. More details can be found in the press release after the jump, and the very first photos of the car can be found in the high-res gallery below.

I'll take a regular Vette, please. That thing is not pretty.

It's nice, though, that at least the Vette platform is being appreciated.
