Bewerp Savage Revale Roadyacht GTS - Click above for a high-res image gallery

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.

      Bewerp Savage Revale Roadyacht GTS deserves a better name:

      ..... throat warbler mangrove?

      "...we'll admit it's original (save the Lambo doors)..."

      Firstly, those are not Lambo doors. They're known as butterfly. If you really must, you can call them "McLaren doors."

      Secondly, how does having such doors make it any less original? Would you still have made that comment if the car had plain-jane swing-out doors? Those would seem far less "original" to me.

      mebbe its me but the pics of the car with the doors open... wont the door clip lock thingies hurt if you sit on them.... and judging by that high sill.... it's gonna wind up in someone's arse at least once...
      they could have gone with a retractable design.... sort of... bt that would mean compromised reliability?

      Very hot. Too bad you won't be able to drive it anywhere. You won't get a block in Florida with that 2" ground clearance.

      Amazing, and four door, build it
        • 5 Years Ago
        Can you say, Ultimate Kit Car. It has great potential.

      I.
      LOVE.
      THIS.

      this has a real 90's sex appeal to it.

        i think you mean "80's"
      • 5 Years Ago
      They should rename it "Super Ugly Lamborghini Gallardo Rip-off"

      I didn't see any pictures with the top up and the rear door open. It looks to me that you would have to put the top down to open the rear driver's side door to fuel the car. Love the car, hate the color on it.

      Is it just me, or does it's mug look like the MCP's from Tron?

      Lambo doors are HOT. Supercars should have awesome doors.

        Actually, the site he linked just doesn't support hotlinking. Open a new browser window (or tab) and paste the address into the address bar. Refresh it if it doesn't work. Not sure what the second image is about though.

        What I meant is, since it flipped over, there probably were injuries (head...) that could've prevented them from reacting, anyway - if not just had them killed right off, before fire/smoke could. Also, the speeding you mentioned, needed for the flipping to happen, could cause such injuries on itself. Not stating it, just suspecting.
        Also, I know of several cases where regular doors didn't helped passengers escape fires (even if they were conscious enough to try to escape it - not a pretty sight...) - a case would be the car getting caught between trees (happened - even a couple inches thick tree is enough): in this case, those doors might open - regulars, wouldn't.
        Breaking the windows would help in any case, as long as the passengers were lucid enough to try it (and had a way (tool) to do it).

        Cheers.

        @Panoptic: the girl was on the passenger's seat

        They work for me (I'm using Chromium, though).
        About the car, considering its looks, Bewerp seems an appropriate name, to me... :P

        @CarlosMC: Ofcourse the doors had very much to do with the outcome.
        (This particular accident happenned in my country.) Bumpy road (undermined and therefore unstable subsurface) together with speeding caused the car to fly off the road where it landed on its roof, afterwards it started tu burn (like Murciélagos tend to do)... Electric went off (so the windows did not work) and because of the way those doors open it was impossible for both people to open them and to get off the car. They both died in the fire.

      I wouldn't say it's pretty, but I rather like the styling. I must disagree about the Lambo doors, though-- that's a styling element that needs to be put to rest.

      based on the corvette chassis? where did they put the engine? I would like to see the engine bay, must be amazing
