After the SV 9 C's computer rendered pictures from the last week, now we can enjoy the first real photos of that amazing vehicle. The SV 9 Competizione limited-edition sportscar is a unique and original hybrid between American muscle and Italian design. The American/Italian collaboration is not something new but the results are always fascinating.

The SV 9C is based on the world-class Corvette C6 drivetrain, incorporated with Italian-styled body made from super-strong carbon-fiber, which reduces the weight of the sportscar below 1.4 tons.

The SV 9C engine is 6.2-litre V8 tuned up to 444 HP, which takes the performance numbers to four seconds for a 0-100 km/h sprint, and 12 seconds for a quarter mile. To handle with this kind of extreme performance, the car is equipped with custom-forged oversize alloy wheels wrapped in sporting PIRELLI PZero Rosso tires. The 9C's exhaust system is created specially by ANSA Automotive in two versions, one based on ANSA's design for the Ferrari Daytona and the other on its design for the Ferrari 599.

The interior of every SV 9C feautures: carbon-fiber-reinforced racing seats upholstered in exquisite hand-stitched Italian leather supplied by Mario Levi SpA (the same source used by Ferrari), a burl-wood or carbon-fiber finished steering wheel, and a matching, custom-rendered, instrument panel and console.
