Avanti fans will have to shell out at least $61,950 to get behind the wheel of a new old Avanti, the former Studebaker coupe born from a few Raymond Loewy pencilstrokes back in 1961. A new partnership between the reborn Avanti Motors and Ford makes way for Avanti's new choice of engines, a 210 hp, 4.0-liter V6 in the base model, and a supercharged 4.6-liter V8 producing 462 horsepower and 419 lb-ft torque in the $95,000 top-of-the-line model. The company is building coupe and convertible versions, and a long list of options including DVD navigation.
