New Reveal : 2009 Savage Rivale Roadyacht GTS

It seems these days for any new amateur car company to make a sports car, they'd go for the Chevrolet Corvette engine and chassis. Examples: the Hulme CanAm F1-styled hyper-car, 2009 Zagato Perana Z-One, 2009 Stile Bertone Mantide, and recently, 2009 USD Mallett Z03. Well now, the 'Vette's engine and chasiss are now billed as the world's first four-door, coupe-convertible supercar, which is built by Savage Rivale. The Roadyacht GTS is a concept that made its world debut at the Top Marques Monaco Show in April.
In terms of styling, the 2009 Savage Rivale Roadyacht GTS most notable design feature are the Gullwing-styled henged 4-doors. Other than that, it looks like any other new and unique supercar, while the retractable hard-top and fold up and down in roughly 20 seconds.
Because its called the 'Roadyacht GTS', Savage Rivale claim that the interior is actually inspired by a yacht. They say that interior is as spacious and luxurious as a class-leading yacht.
Loosely based on the Corvette, the Roadyacht GTS comes equipped with a Corvette Z06-sourced LS7 engine. Nevertheless, with an added supercharger, the total output is 670 hp and and 538 lb-ft of torque. Launching the big heavy 4-seater super-cabrio to 60 mph takes just a tic of 3.4 seconds, and top speed is 205 mph, if not even more. Power is channeled to the rear wheels through GM-sourced automatic gearbox.
