Bewerp Savage Revale Roadyacht GTS deserves a better name

The last time we checked, the name "road yacht" wasn't exactly complimentary, but bespoke supercar creator Bewerp has embraced the moniker with the introduction of the Savage Rivale Roadyacht GTS.
Unveiled at the Top Marques show in Monaco, the company claims the Roadyacht is the only four-door, topless supercar in the world, and as far as we can tell, they're right. Based on the C6 Corvette, Bewerp's superconvertible is packing a supercharged LS7 V8 putting out 670 hp at 6,200 rpm and 538 lb-ft of torque at 4,800 rpm. Although Savage doesn't divulge what materials were used in the build, the performance specs – 0-60 mph in 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 205 mph – suggests a prodigious diet of aluminum and carbon fiber.
From a aesthetic standpoint, the eye of the beholder might be impaled by the designer's pen, but we'll admit it's original (save the Lambo doors) and looks decidedly more attractive when the folding hard-top clicks into place in a claimed 20 seconds. As previously reported, pricing is set at $340,000 and the first example is currently being build.
