The Chinese company has built a replica of the Chevy Corvette C1 sports coupe. The car, which is equipped with a plug-in hybrid engine, will be mass-produced. The prices for the new product were also announced.

Songsan has just unveiled its newest project. This car is a modern replica of the original Corvette C1 – the sports coupe was first introduced 70 years ago. In a Chinese car, not all body elements are 100 percent the same as the original car.

The Chinese automaker has named its creation SS Dolphin, and on its official website features Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, George Clooney and other celebrities driving one of America’s greatest sports cars. Naturally, they all sat behind the wheel of the Corvette C1, and not its Chinese counterpart.

However, the most interesting thing about this replica of the legendary sports coupe is hidden under the hood. It houses a 1.5-liter plug-in hybrid powertrain from Build Your Dreams (BYD).

According to the Chinese newspaper, the car is equipped with a 16 kWh battery, which provides the car with enough electricity to cover a distance of 90-100 kilometers. The claimed acceleration time from 0 to 100 km / h is 4.9 seconds.

Songsan will produce a plug-in hybrid SS Dolphin in an unlimited edition (as far as we know) with a starting price of $ 96,613 or RUB 6,823,588. current exchange rate.
