Real pictures: SV 9 Competizione based on Corvette

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

Real pictures of the SV 9 Competizione limited-edition sportscar are now in. Last week, we got teased with the release of the rendered pictures of this car, a unique and original hybrid merging American muscle and Italian design.

Based on the world-class Corvette C6 drivetrain, the SV 9C is incorporated with Italian-styled body made from super-strong carbonfiber, which reduces the weight of the sportscar below 1.4 tons.

Powering the car is a 6.2-litre V8 tuned up to 444 HP, which takes the performance numbers to four seconds for a 0-100 km/h sprint, and 12 seconds for a quarter mile.

The car is equipped with custom-forged oversize alloy wheels wrapped in sporting PIRELLI PZero Rosso tires. The 9C's exhaust system is created specially by ANSA Automotive in two versions.

One is based on ANSA's design for the Ferrari Daytona. The other is based on its design for the Ferrari 599.

The interior of every SV 9C features: carbon-fiber-reinforced racing seats upholstered in exquisite hand-stitched Italian leather supplied by Mario Levi SpA (the same source used by Ferrari), a burl-wood or carbon-fiber finished steering wheel, and a matching, custom-rendered, instrument panel and console.
