The VSpeed V77 was a sports car manufactured by VSpeed Automotive GmbH in the Saxon town of Radeberg. The first finished prototype was presented at the end of July 2014, and production of the vehicle began in the same year.

The VSpeed V77 is technically based on the Corvette C6. For reasons of weight optimization, the body is largely made of plastic reinforced with carbon fibres. The design is based on the sports cars of the 1960s. The V77 is powered by a V8 engine with a displacement of 6162 cm³, whose output has been increased by 30 kW to 351 kW (477 hp) compared to the base vehicle.

The first production series was limited to 12 vehicles. According to the company, five examples of the VSpeed V77 had been sold by mid-2015.

VSpeed automotive was founded in 2014 by the architect Bernd Nömer after three years of planning. Sepp Melkus, grandson of the racing driver and racing car designer Heinz Melkus, acted as a consultant to the company. The VSpeed V77 was the first model manufactured in the manufactory. In July 2015, the company presented the design of a second model, the VSpeed V88 based on the Corvette C6 Z06. The company was deleted from the commercial register in November 2018.
