The Equus was the last concept car designed for Vauxhall (1978) under the aegis of Wayne Cherry, then head of European design for General Motors. Vauxhall did not resume producing show cars again until 2003.
The Equus was an elegant but simple two-passenger roadster design based on the Panther Lima chassis - a typical, hand-built British roadster, featuring a Vauxhall drive train.
'That's the most uncompromised design I've ever worked on,' said Cherry at the time. 'It's pure graphic statement with sharp edges that define taut and tight surfaces.'
