Marussia F2 – Click above for high-res image gallery

Allow us to introduce you to the Marussia F2 – a vehicle that's one part mission control, three parts SUV and a dash of Nissan GT-R. The company that brought us the likes of the B2 supercar recently unveiled its new globe-roaming creation at telecommunications conference. Why would a carmaker decide to pull the sheets off of its latest product outside of the auto show circuit? Because in this case, the F2 is loaded with the company's new multimedia system.

If our Google Translator is to be believed, the fancy new tech will allow you to connect to your handheld via Bluetooth to use Skype, remotely manage your files or catch your favorite episode of Rocky and Bullwinkle.

With the F2's connectivity capabilities and sliding rear doors, Marussia is hoping that the SUV will find a home among Europe's law enforcement and safety offices. The company's announcement leaves us painfully in the dark as to what kind of engine we can expect to find under the hood. As much as we'd love to tell you that the Russian manufacturer found a way to wedge the sinister 420 horsepower Cosworth 3.5-liter V6 from the B1 in front of a similarly robust all-wheel drive system, right now we have no way of knowing.

      Thickest a-pillars I have ever seen!

        The company owner was probably bullied as a kid. :(

        Seriously, someone there needs to learn how to design a pillar. All their cars have very industrial looking roof structures. The side view is just a mess.

      looks broken

      Looks like something carbon motors would have designed for the law enforcement agencies that couldn't use the car because of off road needs.

      Its pretty cool looking actually.
      At least a great attempt at some interesting angles and different convergent points.
      It reminds me alot of one of the Nissan Prototypes used a couple years back.
      Looked like the interior of a shuttle from the Enterprise from Startrek.
      I dont know if anyone realizes this, but Marussia.. MOTHER RUSSIA..
      Ma-russia..
      I never heard of this company till now and caught the connotation right off..
      Did anyone else notice this?
      Funny.
      :)

      Front end is okay, interior looks decent, but everything from A-pillars on back looks funky in a bad way. The side crease looks inconsistent, as does the lower rocker panel detailing, the handles looks awkward, and the pillars have no design language, just looks like some half-drunk russian designer said "hey, nobody has done this before, so, here ya go!"

      well it's certainly original looking.

      Looks like an Armada that someone thought was way too understated.

      All SUVs should have sliding rear doors-- anything that's intended to move people and cargo really should. They make for easier entry and minimize conflict with adjacent parked cars (or street signs, etc.). I've been looking seriously at Ford's Flex to replace the family minivan, and with the high-output V6 and retro square looks it would bring some balls back to the requisite kid hauler. I just hate to give up the rear sliders.

      One of the more godawful ugly vehicles I've ever seen.

      Marussia = Awesome

      Needs bigger brakes. And I'm missing the "dash of GTR", unless you're referring to those crappy headlights.
