Caccia Custom Cars Ghepardo - click above image for high-res gallery

Here's what we know: Caccia Custom Cars took a 2002 Chevy Camaro and a 2002 Chevy Corvette and created the Ghepardo. The car uses the Camaro's frame and the Corvette's motor and suspension. The motor is mounted amidships, albeit backwards (note the throttle body). And the House of Kolor paint is called Pagan Gold. Also, you should not confuse this SEMA all-star Ghepardo with the 2006 Bizzarrini Ghepardo concept.

As for this Ghepadro... it's not that bad looking. In fact, the longer we stare at the exterior, the more we like what we see. Obviously we can't get past the gaudy chainmail armor covering up every single vent and opening. And we'd prefer if the five-slot wheels weren't chromed. That said, in profile, it's a nice looking mid-engine coupe and the rear is quite muscular. The front even has a touch of new Lexus, which while sacriligious for a Chevy-on-Chevy mashup like this, ain't bad at all.

The interior, on the other hand, is a house of horrors. Everything is covered over in prison-grade Alcantara or carbon fiber-look fiberglass. Even the fire extinguisher!! Also, we're pretty sure a 15/16" cutting tool isn't the smartest Dremel attachment to use for a show car. In fact, in this Autoblogger's mind, the Ghepardo is now in the running neck-and-neck with the Masonry Vitesse Rose for having the worst interior ever – quite a distinction! Additionally, the Ghepardo fills our minds with the delightful image of Corvette and Camaro fans/owners beating each other to pulps with giant oversized cartoon hammers. Perhaps that's just the food around here talking...

      Some Italian-Americans tried to turn a Camaro into a Lambo.

      They have GOT to be from New Jersey...or Long Island.

      the Mansory's color scheme is bad, but there is no way in hell it is worse than this. This interior looks like a 7th grade shop project. The car is not much better.

      but it is doing 110 at 6,000 rpm sitting there! I would have to say the interior sucks and the gauges don't work. exterior is not bad though.

      In all honesty, they had worked mostly on the exterior of the car for most of the time. My teached (who is the designer of the cars style) had worked on the design for a few months. Now you have to understand that this was not made by some hot shot company famous for their fast cars and amazing car detail. This was made by a man (last name Hunt: Reason for why the Caccia is named that) who was trying to create his own car to start his own business. Now believe me that there were plenty of other colors and designs for the car that were worse than what they had now. AND they also had a deadline for the project as well.

      When you take in all of that information, you realize that for a beginner designer of a car this isn't all that bad. My teacher had NOTHING to do with the interior of the car. I don't know the details of the interior design, but I will say that they may have spent most of their money based upon the exterior and building the car.

      If I would rate this car: Based upon the information that I know of:
      I would give them 8/10 for their hardwork and their results.

      I think I just threw up a little bit in my mouth.
