1984 Blake Avanti


1984 Blake Avanti

Avanti was sold to Stephen Blake in October 1982 from Arnold Newman and about 11 family partners for about 4.5 million dollars. After this time the car was actually called a Blake Avavnti and the first was made in 1984. Blake’s cars are distinguished by their more integrated, body-colored, resin bumper.

In 1984 Blake released a limited edition Touring Coupe that featured BBS style wheels, Goodyear Eagle GT high performance tires, a steering wheel signed by Zora Arkus Duntovand Recaro seats.
