We all have a soft spot in our hearts for at least one type of car, though it's different for each of us. For some, it's a mid-engine turbocharged Toyota MR-2, for others it might be an oddball Citroen DS. For a lot of people, it's the Corvette Stingray, and looking at the plans for the N2A Stinger, it's clear why.

An unrivaled performance-to-price ratio has made the Chevrolet Corvette platform a favorite of custom car and coach builders everywhere. The group at N2A Motors is among the foremost of them, with their 789, the Anteros and soon, the Stinger - a modern take on the Corvette Stingray.

Based around the C6 Corvette chassis, the Stinger will feature design elements from the Stingrays of the 1960s, but with the power of the ZR1 - a 6.2L, 638hp (476kW) supercharged LS9 V8 engine.

Combined with the light weight composite material the body panels will be made of and more custom work on the interior, the Stinger is expected to equal or improve on the ZR-1's crushing performance, including a 0-60mph run in just over 3 seconds and a top speed over 200mph (320km/h).

So far N2A is being very tight with the details, but we can bring you a range of design sketches and development models to ponder in the meantime.
