People realize the Bertone Mantide is based on the $103,300 Corvette ZR1, right? I mean, we agree the interior is awful, but it's not the kind of problem it should take an extra $1.82 million to fix.

In total, Bertone plans to make 10 Mantides. Who else is silly enough to drop that kind of money on a body kit and some Alcantara inserts? Reportedly, Jay Leno is on the list.

OK, OK, the Mantide does weigh 220 Lbs less than the ZR1 and it does generate a 30% improvement in downforce, but come on people, the extra dough will buy an awful lot of driving lessons and those will go an awful lot further than some carbon fiber gewgaws. [via Autocar]
