Only 20 cars will be made
Miami-based Gullwing America (GWA) has sent us details and images concerning their most recent project, a tribute to the Studebaker.
The 1954 Studebaker managed to grab 20 wins at the Carrera Panamericana race and 9 of them were consecutive (1993 to 2001). To celebrate this achievement, GWA has decided to pay tribute to the vehicle by developing the Studebaker Veinte Victorias (meaning "20 wins") which will be limited to only 20 cars. 19 of them will wear a yellow livery while the remaining unit is going to have a black hue to serve as a pace car.
The classic body has a modern touch while underneath the skin resides a V8 6.2-liter LS9 supercharged engine developing 620 bhp (462 kW) sent to the wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission. The Studebaker Veinte Victorias benefits from a reinforced tubular chassis and has received Brembo HPK brakes stopping the GWA-developed 19-inch wheels shod in Bridgestone tires. Gullwing America says the vehicle will feature a special suspension and will come an exhaust system manufactured by Fabspeed.
Details about pricing are not available at this point, but will be released in the future.
