If the idea of building a four-seat hard-top convertible supercar in Holland strikes you as off-the-wall, then its racing counterpart should blow your mind. We're talking about Savage Rivale, the markers of the Roadyacht GTS and the competition-spec GTR model it just unveiled at the Top Marques show in Monaco.

Packing upwards of 700 horsepower from a turbocharged 6.2-liter V8, the Savage Rivale GTR is said to be good for 2.8-second sprint to 62 miles per hour and a 360-km/h (234-mph) top speed. With those capabilities, the race-ready Savage is earmarked to tackle the Nürburgring Norschleife lap record for four-door automobiles, a distinction which (to the best of our understanding, anyway) currently belongs to a Subaru Impreza WRX STI driven by rally ace Tommi Mäkinen for Car and Driver in 2010 to a 7:55 lap time, edging out Pikes Peak legend Walter Röhrl in the Porsche Panamera Turbo at 7:56 the previous year.

Only 69 examples are slated for production. We're still waiting on final specifications to be released, but in the meantime you can check out the gallery of high-resolution images from its unveiling in Monte Carlo in the gallery above.

      The panamera Turbo S is the fastest four door around the ring, in a time of 7:52, three seconds faster than the STI

      I know it has four parts that move out of the way to let passengers in, but calling this thing a "four door" is a stretch...

      From the above picture, the front end reminds me of a Komodo Dragon.

      Wish we had a nice video! It's neck and neck with the Evo vs STI only 2 seconds apart. STI: 7:55 AMS Evo X: 7:57 Can't wait until we see the next models from both automakers. These are definitely some of my favorite cars.

      There's no question that this is an unusual and beautiful car, and that it will make some very wealthy buyers extremely happy. I hope that they offer a Pratt and Miller / Thomson Automotive engine option as is available in the Corvette C6RS.to make it even more exclusive. Love the fact that an unconventional design is actually getting into production.
