2012 Savage Rivale GTR unveiled

The first official details and images of the Savage Rivale GTR have just been released, showing the racing version of the Roadyacht in full livery. The lightweight, high-power hand-built Dutch limited-edition racer looks ready to do business.

Based on its specs, that business will be serious: weighing just over 2,260 pounds, and powered by V-8s in various trims from 700 to 800 horsepower, the Rivale GTR stands ready to go toe-to-toe with the best from the world's top supercar brands--but only on track.

Just 69 will be built, each car hand-constructed from chromoly steel to form the chassis, with scissor doors, a 6.2-liter V-8, rear-wheel drive, straight-pipe exhaust, a six-speed manual transmission, and a front-mounted turbocharger feeding the mid-mounted engine. Recaro race seats with six-point belts and a custom carbon fiber race-spec interior finish off the race car's interior.

Fully adjustable coilovers sit on double A-arms, while Brembo ceramic brakes handle stopping duty. Savage says the Rivale GTR is capable of 2.8-second 0-60 mph runs and a top speed in excess of 225 mph.

At a cool €141,250 ($186,715) the Rivale GTR isn't a casual purchase, but it's not that bad for a purpose-built, custom race car.
