Designated as the ‘Veinte Victorias’, GWA plans to build 20 performance-tuned Studebaker Commander Starliner Coupes – one in honor of each victory at the Panamericana. 19 of these coupes will be sold wearing yellow racing liveries, while one black liveried example is expected to be kept as a pace car. We think you’ll agree, they look stunning.
Equally stunning is what’s going on underneath the hood. GWA plans to shovel a 6.2-liter supercharged LS9 V8 from the late-great C6 Corvette ZR1 into the engine bay, good for over 620 horsepower. The engine transplant will complement a tubular spaceframe chassis, custom suspension setup, six-speed manual gearbox, Brembo racing brakes, GWA-designed wheels, and Fabspeed exhaust.
The Studebaker Starliner has always looked like a car from the future, and as can be seen from its Mexican road racing record, performed like one too. Pricing has yet to be announced for these racy Studebaker tributes, but we’d imagine they’ll require some coin.
