It's been tried before, making a coupe out of an SUV – or an SUV out of a coupe. AMC tried it back in the early '80s with the Eagle SX/4. Both DC Design and Merdad tried it with the Porsche Cayenne. And of course BMW tried it with the X6. The trouble with the X6 is that it has two doors too many to be considered a coupe. The solution?

A number of additional enhancements are also on offer, from suspension, wheels and brakes to exhaust, body kit and custom upholstery.
