8 Sports Cars As SUV's
In recent years SUVs have been taking over car markets around the world. Nothing illustrates this trend better than the fact that even manufactures like Alfa Romeo and Maserati now have SUVs in their lineup. And in December Lamborghini – a brand known for its luxury supercars – will unveil their Urus-SUV. The times are definitely changing; inspired by this change, we decided to see how eight sports cars would look as SUVs.
2017 Ford Mustang SUV Concept
Ford Mustang is beyond a doubt one of the most iconic sports cars in the history of motoring, and it is currently the best-selling sports car in the world. The 2017 Mustang has the modern design language of the American's legendary Pony Car, and we absolutely love it. But we began to wonder what would an SUV-version of the new Mustang look like? We created this concept to answer that question.
Alfa Romeo 4C SUV Concept
It is said that you are not a proper petrolhead until you have owned an Alfa Romeo. Alfa brought its Stelvio-SUV to the markets, but we envisioned something even sportier for the SUV-petrolheads. To be honest, the Alfa Romeo 4C was the first thing that came to our minds when we thought of transforming sports cars into SUVs. The Alfa Romeo 4C is the perfect compact sports car and deserves a tougher remake.
McLaren 720s SUV Concept
This car comes early in this list because it’s massively trendy at the moment. When the McLaren 720S was introduced, we were not big fans, because of the McLaren’s constantly changing design and headlights. But we admit we were wrong – and we are crazy about this car now! The car is beautiful, sleek and fits in perfectly with other sports cars, while still being a low-end supercar.
BMW i8 SUV Concept
Besides SUVs, another trend in the current car markets are hybrids, so of course we combined these two! But this car is’nt on the list because it’s a hybrid, but because of the revolutionary design lines of the BMW i8. The whole i Program is sleek and we really love the looks of the i8 and even the i3.But since the i3 is a city car, the i8 is the perfect car for our SUV concept.
Aston Martin v12 Vantage SUV Concept
Who wouldn’t love beautiful British sports cars? The Aston Martin Vantage is a series of hand-built sports cars from the legendary carmaker. The series is much loved, and the V12 Vantage is a real beast: We would love to go to Nürburgring with it! While even Rolls Royce is building a SUV, though, there is no Aston Martin SUV on the markets yet. So here is our take on how the Aston Martin SUV could look.
Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 SUV Concept
The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 looks mean and fast. And it is fast: The sportiest version (the ZL1 1LE) recorded a lap time of 7 min, 16.04 sec at Nürburgring last summer, making it the fastest Camaro on the legendary German track. This car has the right attitude and stance! Therefore, we created an SUV-like Camaro... We think it could be the next hit in car markets.
Ferrari 488 SUV Concept
A list of sports cars would be incomplete without a red Ferrari. There has been a lot of speculation about a Ferrari-SUV, and Sergio Marchionne recently said in the Frankfurt motor show that the Italian brand is “dead serious” about building an SUV. However, the production decision will not be made until at least 2020, and we just could not wait that long. Here is our take on the Ferrari-SUV. We think this is exactly what people might need!
Honda NSX SUV Concept
The Honda NSX is back! It’s a hybrid sports car with a 3.5 L twin-turbo V6 engine and three electric motors, altogether capable of close to 600 hp. The transmission is a 9-speed dual-clutch semi-automatic, and the car’s body has a spec frame design made from aluminum, ultra-high strength steel, and other rigid and lightweight materials. Some say that the price tag of over £150,000 is too much, since it;s still a Honda – but we decided to give them an NSX SUV to talk about, too.
