What the world needs now is love, sweet love. That's what The Carpenters would tell you, anyway – but we beg to differ. What the world needs now, in our opinion, is four-door convertibles. Because while many have experimented with the idea in recent years, and built them many decades ago, there just aren't any on the market these days.

That's where Savage Rivale comes in. Rather than take the parade-car approach, this Dutch project is more like a four-door supercar roadster. On acid. The initial Roadyacht GTS version packs the 7.0-liter V8 from the Corvette Z06 tuned to the tune of 600 horsepower and a four-seat cabin that's more similar in approach to that of a speedboats, but is accessed by some of the most imaginative doors we've ever seen and covered by a giant retractable hard-top.

It sounds strange, we know, but it makes a lot more sense once you see the video after the jump. What makes less sense is the plans to make a GTR version limited to track use that reportedly aims to take the Nürburgring lap record for four-doors, but after first reporting on the upstart nearly three years ago, we'll wait a little while longer to see how this plays out.
