Bewerp Savage Rivale Roadyacht GTS makes successful premiere in Monaco

Last January we have first spoken about Bewerp Savage Rivale Roadyacht GTS, a supercar made in the Netherlands that promises to blur lots of definitions. It has also promised to make its first appearence at AutoRai, as well as to show up in Top Marques Monaco. So far, it has fulfilled all of them.

This is the first image we have of the car ready to run. "It's a driveable prototype, almost fully functional. This summer we'll
be testing it", said Emile Pop, one of the creators of the car, to MotorTips. These tests will surely be a lot of fun, besides the hard work involved, due to what power this machine.

The engine this supercar has is the same one used by Corvette Z06, a V8 LS7 equipped with a supercharger. It is possible that Bewerp decides to replace it with the LS9 engine, used by Corvette ZR1, but Bewerp may want to keep the output in 601 bhp at 6,200 rpm and 750 Nm at 4,800 rpm. Savage is a rear-wheel drive car, with an automatic transmission.

When it comes to its body, it is made of carbon fibre and is mounted over a spaceframe chassis, what assures this car is as light as it could be. We have mentioned it will blur concepts and it will start that with the fact it is a supercar, but it is also a four-door coupe, what could make it be mistaken for a GT. It will also be a coupe cabriolet, or else, a hardtop convertible. "The roof will be a non foldable three-panel sliding hardtop", said Pop. It will probably be the first series production four-door coupe to bring a retractable hardtop.

Besides that, as if it was not enough, all doors are scissor doors. The front ones open in the traditional way and the back doors are what we call suicide doors. They rise from the middle of the car to the back.

Bewerp Savage Rivale Roadyacht GTS will have 20 units produced, but two of them have already been reserved. Considering the car will cost something between 600,000 euros and 700,000 euros, depending on what the customer requests, it is quite an accomplishment. Probably the first in many to come. "If this will succeed we'll produce a couple of special edition's and, after that, the future will tell. We have some special projects on the design table", said Pop. We cant't wait to see them.
