Up above is the new MV Agusta Brutale 800. It is, as you can plainly see, beautiful, and it will be powered by a 798cc three-cylinder engine offering up 125 horsepower and 60 pound-feet of torque. With a claimed weight of 368 pounds, this stunner will boast an impressive power-to-weight ratio. Price ought to come in around $10,000 when it comes Stateside.
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.
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.
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.
