Three in one: the Audi TT, Corvette and Chevrolet of 1937 brought together in a unique carMarch 20, 2019
Like the 37-year-old Chevy, the fourth-generation Corvette and the first-generation Audi TT, this car is a rather strange mixture.
It is very unlikely that it would have occurred to anyone to mix this group of cars, but it seems that such enthusiasts have been found, and now we have the result of their work. 6,000 man-hours led to the creation of this “dream car in the style of French deco”, which has a number of interesting quirks.
Bella Elan Coupe, this is what this creation is called, in some magical way combines the look of a full-size Hot Wheels toy and artdeco artistic glamor. This is definitely one of the most unique cars on offer today.
The power comes from the 5.7-liter Chevrolet LS1 combined with the usual Audi C5 automatic transmission. The original data is not disclosed, but the first version of the LS1 generated 345 horsepower, so the indicators are probably close to this. Take a look inside and you will see that the TT dashboard has also become a design element.
Despite the use of Audi parts, the interior was heavily modified with wood inserts and a special set of tools that add to the atmosphere of individuality.
Those with a sighted eye will notice many wooden accents, from footpegs and protective sills to beautifully lined details on the dashboard.
Thanks to the use of teak wood and the vintage three-spoke steering wheel, the German interior matches the classic French exterior. At the same time in the car there are all modern conveniences, starting with electric windows, heated leather seats, as well as air conditioning, and ending with cruise control and 1DIN head unit with a CD player.
The car and the engine together covered only 2,900 km, and the seller assures that he is traveling in the same way as all the cars with the LS1 Corvette. By the way, the motor for Bella Elan Coupe purchased in 1998, before that it was used only during tests at the stand.
This strange and wonderful creation has recently been re-listed on eBay, but there is very little time left to make a deal. Currently, the highest bid price is $ 35,200.
