One-Off Corvette Bella Elan Coupe Pops Up On eBay With An Audi TT Cab

If you’ve ever wondered what happens when you combine an Audi TT, a Chevrolet Corvette and a handful of 1930’s styling cues, you’re in luck as there is a bizarre custom car up for grabs on eBay.

Looking a bit like a mutated Plymouth Prowler, this one-off Corvette Bella Elan coupe reportedly required over 6,000 hours (250 days) to create. The car is loosely based on a 1988 Corvette but it rides on a new frame and features the cab from a 2001 Audi TT Coupe. The model also has fenders from a 1937 Chevy, 1959 Corvette taillights and teak running boards.

Besides the hodgepodge of components, the car has a retro-inspired grille and old school headlights. The designer also added massive front fender vents, a huge trunk and probably one of the largest third brake lights ever fitted to an automobile.

The unique styling carries over to the cabin as there’s only a handful of touches from the Audi TT. The driver sits behind a three-spoke steering wheel and will find themselves looking at custom black and white gauges. The car also has heated leather seats, wood trim and a modern audio system.

While the styling won’t win everyone over, the eBay listing says it was created to fulfill the “owner’s dream of a French Deco style” car.

Performance specifications are lacking but the model features a 1998 LS1 engine. This likely means the car has more than 300 hp (223 kW / 304 PS). Regardless of the actual output, the engine is connected to an automatic transmission which sends power to the rear wheels via a limited slip differential.

The auction ends this weekend and the starting bid is $27,500. However, it hasn’t received any bids as of yet.
