Jason Castriota and Bertone's Project M has spawned the Corvette ZR1-based Mantide supercar prototype, and love it or hate it, it's certainly an iconic design that bears almost no indication of its coachbuilt origins.

But now that the project is complete and the car is out there, how do Castriota and Bertone feel about their creation? Is it everything they'd hoped it would be? Or was it a colossal mistake in design? We'll leave it to the video to give you the recap of the build process and the designer's feelings on the Mantide, but suffice to say, the car was a success.

Surprisingly, at the end of the video, the filmmaker that produced the 11-episode Project M series reveals some of the hints to the car's ZR1 underpinnings he dropped along the way.

Now all that's left is waiting for the 10 production units that may yet be built - and finding a way to get behind the wheel of one.
