The Savage Rivale Roadyacht GTS - What is it?
The Supercar nobody knows about
The Savage Rivale Roadyacht GTS is a supercar which came from the minds of 2 Dutch students, Emile Pop and Justin de Boer. It made its first (and only) appearance at Top Marques, Monaco in 2009. They only produced 20 of these (mostly because of lack of finance but also they didn't really take off).
It sported a very odd design. This is unlike anything I have ever seen before (and it's a convertible!). I love how much detail they went into producing this. They even put leather in the places you would only see it when the back 'doors' are open. It's not the prettiest car ever but sometimes even ugly comes at a hefty price tag. This would set you back around £415,000. That's a lot for a car you've never heard of. I really don't know much about the company (as their so small) but in 2011 they released the GTR version of this and once again, that didn't really take off. It was in the press one day then was forgotten about.
Spec-wise, the Savage Rivale Roadyacht GTS has a Corvette V8 which produces 670 bhp and 730 Nm or torque. Thus propelling it from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.4 seconds and has a top speed of 330 km/h (205 mph). It weighs just 1280 kg which is amazing considering all the extra weight from the doors and retractable roof. Speaking of the roof, it was made out of glass with reinforced carbon fibre and had a multipanel telescopic layout which is what allows it to fold in such a strange manner.
