Crazy name for a crazy car
29 May 2009

A Dutch firm has created both a motoring niche and possibly one of the longest car names in history.

The Bewerp Savage Rivale Roadyacht GTS is claimed to be the world’s only four-door supercar and was recently unveiled at the Top Marques show in Monaco.

It is based on a Corvette C6 and is powered by a supercharged LS7 V8 with 661bhp at 6200 rpm and 538lb ft of torque at 4800 rpm.

Despite its considerable size, the Roadyacht reaches 60mph in a claimed 3.4 seconds and tops 205mph.

Little is known about its construction, but it is likely to be mostly aluminium and carbonfibre.

The doors fold up Lamborghini-style and entry is keyless via a bespoke wristwatch.

All the seats are adjustable and are heated, with the rear occupants benefiting from a champagne cooler.

Bewerp expects to start production in the second half of next year and will build 20 Roadyachts in total.

    17 October 2017
    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
