We won't press it yet, but let's just say our hand is hovering over the big red "Vaporware!" button we keep armed for just such announcements. DiMora Motorcars still owes us – and LV Resorts – the $2-million SLS 2 sedan with its 1,200-horsepower Volcano V16 engine, Barotex fibers and MP3-enabled horn.

While we wait for it, DiMora has seen fit to announce not just a new car, but a new division with two new cars said to be "nearing completion." The Neoclassic Automobiles Subsidiary will, depending on your credulity, be producing the Adina Sportster and Vicci 6.2 Super-Coupe. The Adina is a Morgan-like roadster powered by a General Motors LS3 V8 with 431 horsepower.

The Vicci (pictured) gets either the LS3 or the Corvette ZR1's LS9 with 638 running through a six-speed manual, six-speed automatic or – prepare to step in your Wayback Machine – a four-speed auto. Its faux Talbot-Lago lines hide a carbon fiber dash, paddle-shifters and a stereo that displays engine diagnostics. Assuming it gets made.

Follow the jump for the press release with info on two possible, but unlikely, limited-edition future cars.

DiMora Unveils Neoclassic Automobiles Subsidiary
Adina and Vicci 6.2 prototypes near completion


Palm Springs, California - March 14, 2012 - The Neoclassic Automobiles subsidiary of DiMora Enterprises, LLC announces the design and production of two new series of distinctive motorcars, the sporty Vicci 6.2 and the luxurious Adina. Their fusion of 21st century technology with classic 1930's elegance and flair defines a new niche in the American and global automobile markets.

The elegant Adina series blends the design elements and handcrafted workmanship of the DiMora brand with the power and durability of a high-performance General Motors drive train. The Adina is enhanced by the V8, LS3 engine with 431 horsepower. Standard amenities include Italian burl wood inlaid dash, lamb's wool carpeting, etched glass and more, while a removable hard-top leads the list of optional features.

The DiMora Neoclassic Vicci 6.2 Super-Coupe
The sporty Vicci 6.2 Super-Coupe boasts either the LS3 or the supercharged 638-horsepower LS9 engine that comes with independent suspension. Vicci buyers are afforded the choice between 4- or 6-speed automatic transmissions or the 6-speed manual transmission. The Vicci 6.2 convertible will also be available, with an optional removable hard-top. Carbon-fiber dashboard, Italian leather seats, fly-by-wire electronics, stereo with engine diagnostics, paddle-shifters on the steering wheel, wire wheels, back-up cameras, GPS and more come as standard equipment.

DiMora Motorcar owner Sir Alfred J. DiMora stated, "We are building everything from the ground up, from our new state-of-the-art chassis to innovative body technology. With our new Alurock composite method of building bodies, our cars will be lighter but stronger than ever before. These limited-production automobiles will be unique, but also serviceable around the world by any GM mechanic tech, making it convenient for our customers." DiMora continued, "DiMora Neoclassic Automobiles is a continuation of our legacy of building such classic automobiles as the Clenet and the Sceptre."

      I have been to the plant and seen both the Adina and the Vicci 6.2. I also have seen the Natalia SLS2 . I think that this DiMora can build some of the best cars in the world. The detial work and designs are the best I've seen. When you see this for yourself you will see what I'm talking about.

      DiMora? That explains why the blue car looks like a Clènet, because it is one. So now they want to add a Talbot Lago t150 ripoff to their line retrocars for 1%ers. Where are they going to get the frames to build them on? Weren't Clènets built on Caddilac chassis?

        1. It's Cadillac. 2. No. The Clenet was built on the Ford Foxbody chassis.

          1. Sorry for the misspelling. 2. I did a little research, and Clènet started his coach works in 1976, using Cougar, Continental, and Town Car chassis. So it wouldn't have been Fox based (which is unit body, not body on frame) but Panther, and only then after 1979, when that platform came out.

      That looks a lot like a type 57 Bugatti coupe.

      I actually like the idea of a really good restomod Talbot Lago teardrop coupe. But this "company" is ridiculous. They clearly don't even understand the proportions of the car. It's stretched awkwardly, which means the front wheel is the wrong size relative to the rest of the form.

        @imag
        imag is correct, too much length between the end of the fenders and the windshield, proportions are not classic, wheels/tires too small for the length, greenhouse too small fot the length, and that's when you compare it to a T-L or Bug. Without comparing it to anything, it's just too long.

        I think it's proportioned really well. Put Talbot-Lago or Bentley type-57 pics beside it and you will see. They were the ultimate fallic symbol then, and now.

        So what? It is nice to see dreams come to fruition. And dreams inspire future design.
