You wouldn't expect something called the Roadyacht to weigh as little as 1,030 kilos (2,270 pounds), but that's the curb weight that niche Dutch automaker Savage Rivale is claiming for its new GTR racing model. Couple that with between 700 and 800 horsepower, and what started out as a boulevard cruiser is shaping up as a serious performance machine.

That boulevard cruiser, as you may recall, is the Savage Rivale Roadyacht GTS, a four-door exotic hardtop convertible, which in roadgoing spec is already pegged to pack 600 horsepower from its Chevrolet Corvette Z06-sourced 7.0-liter V8.

The GTR packs an extra one or two hundred horses (this time from a turbocharged 6.2-liter V8), and while its creators were initially hoping to claim the Nürburgring lap record for four-doors, that the racing model has just two doors – and makes no such claim – leaves us wondering where the plans changed.

The finished product is set to make the mid-April trip from The Hague to Monte Carlo for the Top Marques Monaco show, after which no more than 69 examples will be made available at €141,250 (before taxes, or roughly $185k) – which is significantly less than the €257,000 sticker price originally forecasted for the street version (around $335k). Follow the jump for the brief announcement and full specifications, and scope out the high-res images in the gallery for a closer look.

2012 SAVAGE RIVALE GTR

Nederland, Den Haag, 14 February 2012

'Savage Rivale shows their first official footage of the Savage Rivale GTR'

This racing version of its big brother (the roadyacht GTS), is built on the same platform but is equipped with a more powerful V8 engine with power configurations of around 700-800 BHP. The GTR combines this with a lower weight and is therefore the ultimate Boy-Toy weighing only 1030 kg. The best bang for your buck, only 69 will be hand built, securing its exclusivity

The Savage Rivale GTR will be unveiled @ the Top Marques Supercar show in Monaco the 19th of April 2012. Visit us on stand B4 in Monte Carlo, Monaco!

      I'm guessing it's not street legal...

      Well....its definitely different. not sure about that 185k price tag. Maybe when I win the lottery, or become an Arab Sultan or something.

        $185,000 is the price for the race car version of it. Race cars aren't cheap.

      Impressive, but I say vaporware

        The production Roadyacht GTS has already been unveiled. So no, it's not vaporware.

      Is this a modern version of a 1974 AMX Javelin? It's the back that for some reason reminds me of this car.
