    EQUUS -- The Domestic Equivalent of Singer?

    Singer's success with revitalized & custom Porsche's has clearly illustrated that there is a top-dollar market for classic cars's being given a new life, after getting a complete rebuild, some modern technology and performance, topped off with some very luxurious refinement.

    EQUUS now appears to be entering that custom, luxury-rebuild sports car market, but instead focusing on Classic American Muscle.



    Thoughts?? Hopefully Projects??

    That. Is. Awesome.

    Singer is good stuff but man do you have to have deep pockets for a toy nobody will think cost that much.

    The Singer builds usually end up being ~$500k (the project 911 + Singer's work) by the time you finally receive the car back

    Wow... I recently (within past year) just heard of Singer; never heard of EQUUS. Looks amazing - and I am betting a lot of people in the US (and whatever other market they cater to) will buy up many of these things. People have a lot of love for cherry domestics - this is a whole different level. Good stuff here - would like to see how they are sitting in a year or so.

    ^^Good point, for anyone who doesn't know Singer, they're the company that started the whole "revitalization" market with these

    I thought this is built from the ground up not a restoration of a classic car.
    Classic car looks with a LS9, DCT and Magnetic ride control sounds good to me.
