On this occasion, we tried to present an article to know one of Bertone's best sports cars named Bertone Mantide which built based on the Corvette ZR1.

Reportedly, there were 10 units ever built, and also have the price slightly more expensive than the ZR1, where each sold at $2 million.

The debut of this car took place in the 2009 Shanghai Auto Show. This car looks gorgeous in red-metallic color, and all the principles that should be owned by sports car have been pinned on it.

Initially, the Mantide design inspired by the basic concept of aircraft and Formula One (F1). Its radical design clearly reflected on the front face by the massive size of the engine hood and directly integrates with the bumpers.

When moving straight from the front wheels dome to the rear, we will be faced with a design that is more assertive and aggressive include the patches that resemble the fighter jet air intakes.

The passenger cabin itself appears as a unique canopy. Overall all the body design is able to provide great aerodynamics factors with improved downforce aerodynamic reaches 30%. It is not directly supported by the use of carbon fiber body panels and black wheels are made of lightweight materials. 

While for the interior, its panel instruments found in the cabin has brought a futuristic feel. Including the usage of racing seats, four-point seat belts and FIA standards roll cage.
This car uses a supercharged LS9 engine and claimed to be capable of spraying power off up to 638 hp. The car performance while accelerating from a standstill to 100 kph (62 mph) in just 3.2 seconds, so it is not surprising that the car is able to move up to a maximum speed of 351 kph (217 mph).
