n2a Motors 789 - Click above for a high-res image gallery

The n2a Motors 789 is perhaps the ultimate automotive expression of retro styling. Based on a C6 Corvette chassis and using hand-crafted carbon composite body panels, the 789 features styling cues from 1957, '58, and '59 Chevrolets. Just over 20 of these unique cars have been built over the past few years, the first of which n2a Motors is putting up for auction on eBay. Featuring an LS2 V8, custom Budnik wheels, and a Borla exhaust system, chassis #001 was used as the promotional car at the Los Angeles and New York auto shows and still has the remainder of GM's five-year/100,000 warranty. Best of all, the winning bidder gets to take delivery of the car immediately and doesn't have endure the typical 12-week wait for a brand new 789.

      People don't like them. I think they look decent at least. What is so cool about n2a is that they mean what they stand for: no 2 alike. They won't even use the same exact combo of color pigments. The hue is off just enough.

      As much as I really don't like most retro-'Vette kits that have to be stretched onto a C5 or C6 frame, this one really looks good. As in, "if-I-could-get-it-for-reasonable" good.

      In my opinion, of course.

        I'd rather just have a new C6.

      Somebody killed a herd of resins for this?

        In a good way, or in a bad way ;)

        in a good way definetely... not that it would be 100pct flawless, but overall it is just stunning (for my eyes at least)

      It's sort of cool, but I would never buy one.

      The craftsmanship is impressive, but something about those proportions doesn't quite sit well with me. The front looks too flat, or too long... Can't put my finger on it. And those wheels need to go.

        I can verify that: I've seen one of these crazy machines up close (at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale in 2007 - might even have been this exact car, as it was the same color scheme). And the craftsmanship is excellent. Really amazing, considering how totally insane the styling is.

      I think the back end is great! But then again my first car out of high school was a turquoise blue '59 Chevy Impala.

      The car looks wrong because the windshield destroys the retro look. To pull off a retro look, the whole car needs to look retro. Everything looks like a throwback, then you jarringly get a more modern raked windshield. Totally doesn't fit. Bling wheels and rubberband tires need to go too.

      I would say Americans have weird taste for putting wings or fins in cars. I don't understand why they always want mimic something else other than cars. Like the current Cady CTS it's said they got inspiration from stealth airplane. Give'me a break! Cars should look, well, just like cars, shouldn't look like other things.

      OMG, this is my town. I am going to take a look at it up close tomorrow. Definitely did not think this was located in Jersey.

      Shave its butt and teach it to walk backwards.

      No, wait....scratch that.....the back is hideous too.
