n2a motors

I’m curious as to what others on here think about custom bodywork on production vehicles. I’m not talking about the off the shelf pep boys add-ons. I’m thinking more in the realm of complete body makeovers.

I ran across this company that is doing almost all new bodies for current generation corvettes. I think they have come up with some very interesting designs.

n2a motors:

n2a motors 789:
current gen corvette with 57, 58, 59 Impala design features

n2a motors Anteros Coupe & Roadster:
current gen Corvette with Italian design cues

n2a Stinger
current gen corvette inspired by 63-67 corvettes

I think it’s a really cool idea. I like the sting ray the most. The other designs look like they miss that final 5% to look correct. Nothing stands out as being wrong, just a little something in the proportions seems off.

I like the idea, but these don’t really sing to me.

The Italian shops have been doing this for ages. Pinifarina has a bunch of Ferrari one offs. The Glickenhaus custom job comes to mind of which they’re now doing some kind of racing version; maybe a LeMan. Then there’s all those Zagato Astons.

The company “Classic Reflection Coachworks” does a pretty amazing c5 to early 1960’s conversion for the corvette. I’ve seen one in my town and I was blown away by how good it actually looks in person, and the proportions actually translate to the new bigger body. Still doesn’t compare to the original though…

I’m not a fan of the execution, it looks like a cartoon of nostalgia stretched over a modern chassis more than a design. The Anteros is crossing over for me, getting into that nice TVR zone.
