It looks as if the Local Motors Rally Fighter will soon have some competition. The Korres Project 4 boasts a 7.0-liter LS7 V8 lifted from the Chevrolet Corvette Z06. With 505 horsepower shoved into a 3,527-pound package, the creation should have no trouble covering ground very quickly. Dimitris Korres, the Greek architect behind the Project 4, says his creation can clip to 60 miles per hour in 3.8 seconds on its way to a top speed of 186. That's all par for the course, but it's the machine's innovative suspension that makes it stand out from the crowd.

Capable of increasing or decreasing its ride height as necessary, the Project 4 can cover all sorts of terrain at speed. With locking differentials front, center and rear, the creation has the potential to be very impressive. You can check out a pair of videos below for a better look. Note that the photos in the gallery show the bruiser with its body panels removed for a better look at its innovative suspension and bare aluminum chassis, and check out this link for more.

      Fastest dune-buggy in the world. Nice seat covers too.

      Ermahgawd! It's like my childhood G.I. Joe fantasies have come to life! Half-nekkid ladies in Ducati tops and all! BTW, why were they wearing Duc branded stuff? Seriously though, awesome idea for the suspension, but I'm left to wonder how compliant the suspension is in the raised position. I mean, it looks like in order to raise the vehicle those arms just push the lower control arms down, lifting the car itself up. That means the pivot points of those arms have to pretty damn rigid. I noticed he had it lowered when climbing over those concrete slabs and I kept waiting for him to raise it to its full height for such a stunt...maybe he didn't because it's just a gimmick and there isn't any actual articulation when raised.

        They borrowed them from Ducati , can only afford to Rent girls like that when you only 1/5th as enthusiastic with your demo as a 70yo man is about a catheter

      Video 1 would be awesome, except I'm sea sick from the camera work.... 3500 pounds? did someone miss a metric conversion? This thing looks very very stoutly built.

      And the competition is where exactly? An unfinished chassis, created in a garage for personal fun for a couple millions euros in a bankrupt country, against a company that already has established and created a steady client list.

      Waste of an LS7 if you ask me.

        You're right it would work better as a boat anchor. Though that's being mean to boat anchors as most o them as far more technologically superior to an LS motor

          A slur to the LS series from someone who doesn't know the difference between a motor and an engine doesn't carry much weight in my opinion.

      That has to be one of the most unenthused demonstration ever. I nearly fell asleep.

      Not exactly sure what`s "innovative" about an adjustable ride-height suspension, since it`s commonplace on everything over $40k these days....
