The Studebaker Avanti was a sport coupe originally built by the Studebaker Corporation of South Bend, Indiana, USA between June of 1962 and December of 1963. Designed by a team of stylists employed by industrial designer Raymond Loewy, the Avanti was all new on the surface and a radical design. Dimensionally, the car was very close to the Ford Mustang.

Avanti is Italian for "forward" or "advance," and the car lived up to its name. While Jaguar began offering production-car disc brakes in 1957 on the XK150, the Avanti was the first American mass-produced car to feature standard disc brakes. The Avanti's emphasis on safety, with seatbelts available as an option, safety door latches and roll-over protection bar, was also very advanced, befitting its name. The Avanti has survived failure after failure of its host companies and has achieved cult status, maintaining a loyal customer base large enough to support production as a luxury specialty car on and off for more than 45 years.
