Click above for a high-res gallery of the Keating SKR.

Last week saw the unveiling of the Keating SKR, a bespoke supercar powered by either a 6.0- or 7.0-liter GM-sourced V8 producing between 400 and 500 horsepower and tipping the scales at just over 2,600 pounds. Keating finally got its act together and supplied us with a gallery of images, but the proof is in the pudding, and it's obvious that Keating is on a seriously tight budget. What else could explain the cell-phone quality build pics, the CGI color configurations and the obvious photochopping of the Keating logo on to GM's LS3? Regardless, we've assembled all the pics in a gallery for your perusal, and here's hoping that the SKR's build quality is better than the company's Photoshop skills.

      Typically, I hate it when people bash on a car calling it derivative or a blatant rip-off.

      However, when I look at this car, all I can see is Saleen S7, Tesla Roadster and Pagani Zonda... and I feel bad saying that.

      I love that more and more companies are trying to step up and make "supercars," so that we can add to the list of cars to lust after, but c'mon.

      If their attention to detail is this sloppy on something as straightforward as a press release, it makes me nervous to think of the quality of the product itself.

      I understand that the press release should have no bearing on the quality of the underlying product, but such a half-assed attempt as this only damages the legitimacy of Keating's supercar effort.

      To me this car looks like a Farboud or whatever its now called.

      LOL.. lamest start to a new supercar, ever? And it's not as if their design looks amazing either.

      McLaren F1 Doors, Lotus Elise side scoop, etc...

      Yeah, pretty much taking nice cues from other cars and building one body out of them.

      Meh.

      i know what you all are saying....but these days everything looks like something... its still better then i can do.... and i wouldnt mind rolling in one.

        I agree. You can find design cues from other cars on anything if you look hard enough. It's not the most revolutionary design but it's not atrocious either. It looks like a car that does 200 mph, 3.5 0-60. In the original post everyone bashed this car, I'd like to see one of you do better.

      Well, BMW totally CGI'd those M1 revival concept shots, and they have a lot more $$$...

      I'm sure this car would be an ultimate thrill to drive and a killer on the track.

      I'm just not intrested in a car that's hardly usable in the big picture.
      A 911 RUF Turbo is a track slaying trill ride and it's still refined enough to drive to work in.
      And it's not alone in it's class.

      And to think, a perfectly good Fiero was ruined to make this abortion.
