Click the image above for a high-res gallery of the E-Go Revolt

A new coachbuilding company in Russia called E-Go has come up with a new car built on a Mitsubishi platform. Called Revolt, by E-Go, we don't find it the least bit offensive, although we do think the rear end is a little funky. The Revolt -- in spite of the company's catchy name and word "volt" lurking around in there -- is not electric. Rather, a 3.0-liter V6 gets two turbos slapped on to run some 550 hp through a six-speed gearbox. It has an active air suspension and rides on 19-inch wheels from Japanese wheel company Work, with 325/30 rubber out back. Stopping power should be prodigious, thanks to six-piston calipers up front and four-pots in back.

Most interesting, the car's electronics are being developed by engineering firm National Instruments, and you will be able to control them all via a touch screen monitor in the steering wheel. We can't wait to see what that steering wheel must look like, and whether they can make the car drive for you while you punch in new data. Word is that E-Go "has already started building cars," but as usual, we'll wait and see. In the mean time, you can check out the high-res gallery of the Revolt below.

      Revolting.

      It's beautiful! You can't go wrong picking the classic 3000 GT and GT R for inspiration.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Looks like the outcome of a Aussie ford waking up next to a 3000GT from the front. Kinda like it...
      • 6 Years Ago
      Yeah, I noticed the Maser taillights right away. The overall proportions and greenhouse are also reminiscent of the GTR (and the headlight graphic is a little bit like the GTR concept, but it's different enough).

      It's nothing special, but it's certainly not ugly.

      I hate when people do this.. but I dub thee.. maserati gt-r8 :]
      • 6 Years Ago
      Russian car design = FAIL

      Nice Maserati taillights.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I really like the back. the front looks not so good. I don't like the headlight design all the way down to the bumper. the car looks a bit too soft in some places and too much in other places. was up with the revolt name, what is Russia trying to say here.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I was gonna say, Maserati called.

        They want their tail lights back.

        And the front is Mitsubishi 3000GT, look for your selves: http://www.ece.arizona.edu/~ocpl/neifeld/pics/3000GT2.jpg

        No, the front is the Falcon....

        Gotta love Asian Continent design, no car left uncoppied.

      Definitely can see the 3000GT its based on, even down to the same 3.0L V6 TT.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Is that a matte white finish?
      • 6 Years Ago
      B E A U T I F U L ! ! !
        • 6 Years Ago
        lol, r u blind?
        or Russian?
      • 6 Years Ago
      This looks like on of the transformers
      • 6 Years Ago
      Revolt? More like revolting. Only the Nissan GT-r has an uglier front view. Are we living in the era of "design to be ugly"? Man, I hope we break this trend soon....
        • 6 Years Ago
        Couldn't have said it better...

        Where it isn't ugly, it makes up for it by being weird.
