Four-Door, Convertible Supercar? Savage Rivale Roadyacht

Four-Door, Convertible Supercar?  Savage Rivale Roadyacht

Just when I thought I'd seen everything there was to see in terms of supercars from random countries, here's a new one: a four-door super-roadster from the Netherlands. It's the Savage Rivale Roadyacht GTS.

The Roadyacht seems nothing if not unlikely. Supercars normally earn their "super" by keeping weight as low as possible. That means a small, two-seat, two-door configuration. So the idea of a four-door supercar is already a little strange. Then you throw on a removable top, which only adds weight, and it's even stranger (figure they'd make a hard-top version first).

Also, the "Roadyacht" name sounds like the perfect name for a limousine or large, executive ultra-premium sedan. A name that conjures images of huge, slow ships just isn't right for a supercar, GTS or no.

Despite all that it has working against it, Savage Rivale thinks that it has the recipe for an exciting car. The car will be powered by a 7.0-liter LS-7 V-8 Chevy engine tuned to just over 600 horses. It rides on a chrome molybdenum frame and features a carbon fiber body.

Turns out, Savage Rivale is using the term "supercar" awfully loosely. The car doesn't even have the flagship Corvette engine, and 600 horses doesn't sound like enough to give a stretched out foor-door "super" numbers. But I guess we'll hold off final judgment until we see the full spec sheet and Nurburgring four-door record attempt next year.

On the car's 'pros' side, what's the good of a supercar if you can't use it to pick up multiple chicks at a time? As the video below shows, if two gorgeous models happen to be broken down on the side of an incredible coastal road on the way into Monaco, the Roadyacht will let you pick them both up in style. And that has got to turn out a whole lot better than driving one into town while the other waits with the broken down car. Plus, you'll still have a seat left for your actual girlfriend!

Savage Rivale will debut the production version of the model next year. It hasn't provided a specific date, but said that it will be at a major Middle East auto show. Three customers have already placed their order.
