You're forgiven if you've already forgotten the Vygor Opera, a crossover coupe that makes the BMW X6 and Acura ZDX look sensible. Now, the Tuscany-based operation has unveiled a second take on the concept: the Opera.2.

It's not an early replacement for the Opera.1. The Opera.2 offers buyers (at whatever stage of psychotherapy they might currently stand) a slightly different design that does away with the previous version's hideous cartoon-bunny front end in favor of a (relatively) more subtle treatment. So now it looks like a moderately restrained Chinese concept car instead of a hilariously ugly one.

In addition to the new front end, we get more details on the Vygor's mechanicals, which are borrowed from the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo. The turbo four is reportedly available with 300, 350 or 420 horsepower, propelling this 3,500-lb mess to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.9 seconds and on to a 155 mph top end. The car has all-wheel drive (obviously), and a tubular steel frame draped in aluminum and composite bodywork.

This is where we tell you that pricing starts at the Euro equivalent of around $192,000. Once you stop laughing, you'll also be thrilled to know that a third design is apparently in the works to give Vygor's theoretical customers an even broader range of style choices.
