Anteros XTM Roadster

(from Anteros Press Release) Anteros Marketing introduces exotic 550 horsepower Supercar at SEMA 2006

Official Return for the Golden Age of Coachbuilding

San Leandro, California, November, 2006 – After an exciting sneak preview at the Monterey Classic Car Show, Anteros Marketing announces the Golden Age of Coach-building is here to stay. ANTEROS XTM is a limited production 2-seat convertible sports car featuring 400 to 600 horsepower, a carbon fiber composite body with a fine leather & wood interior, and state-of-the-art technology throughout.

ANTEROS takes its name from the ancient god of Passion. It is a passionate expression of Automotive Fine Art. Anteros Founders, John Rothman, and son, David Rothman, commissioned a team of talented designers and fabricators to create a brutally elegant car that seamlessly blends both contemporary and classic sports car DNA into a stunning artistic sculptural statement. Anteros uses the base engineering of the C6 platform as a foundation to create this 550 horsepower rolling sculpture in carbon fiber and luxury leather.

“We had a fantastic reaction to the Anteros at the Monterey Classic Car Show, exotic car dealers around the United States are anxiously waiting production slots“, said Mr. David Rothman, President of Anteros Marketing. With pricing between $125,000 and $135,000, the ANTEROS XTM will be manufactured on a semi-custom build-to-order basis.

Anteros Marketing, a California based coachbuilder, also has under development the ANTEROS XTS Targa featuring a removable hardtop. Their future plans are to release the ANTEROS XTR Hardtop based on the ZO6 platform that will feature horsepower of 505 to 655 HP.

Looks like they ripped off the E-Type and Shelby Series 1 in one quick, cheapo blow.

550 hp is a bit of a performance upgrade for a Corvette, even the Z06. 655 for the future is even more so.

So this is on a C6 platform, and has a upgraded C6 engine. Why pay $125,000+ for this when you get get a C6 for way less? And then just supercharge it. IMHO I think this looks like an Italian fish with a Maserati Front and a back from a Boyd Coddington Boydster.

It looks different. Very very different. Its also rare.
If you like the styling, and exclusivity...and had lots of money, you might buy it.
