Italian SUV-GT crossover Vygor Opera will be tailored to the requirements of each customer

The first undisguised images of the Vygor Opera, the inaugural offering from the new Italian manufacturer specialising in handcrafted cars, have been released.

The Tuscany-based car firm claims the two-door Vygor Opera crossover will provide ‘the comfort of a SUV and the driving pleasure of a GT’.

Vygor intends to tailor the Opera to the bespoke requirements of each customer. For example, a variety of performance options will be offered, ranging from 295bhp to 395bhp, although the transmission will remain permanent four-wheel-drive in all cases.

The Opera has a tubular frame made of high-strength steel and a body made of composites and steel, giving a weight of about 1500kg. The car features adjustable double-wishbone suspension and will be offered with wheels ranging from 18-inch to 22-inch.

Vygor says production will be limited to 150 examples.
