The sad irony about fast, fancy cars. You can pick up one woman in any clean, decent car. To get two, three...fawning over you all at once, well...you'll want a flashy supercar. Or at least you would want a flashy supercar if it came with more than one passenger seat - you know, so you could actually take those ravishing gals somewhere.
But alas, it's not meant to be. And what's really the point of investing hundreds of thousands of dollars into a bright-red, shortcoming-compensating machine that basically screams "SMALL Penis!!!" if you can't boost your ego by way of a traveling bevy of lovelies? It just isn't fair, is it?
Savage Rivale, a Netherlands automaker with no particular history as of yet, believes it has a solution to this age-old dilemma. With its Roadyacht GTS, you can have your full-blown exotic car and your cab full of beautiful ladies. More likely, you can have your middle age crisis and bring the entire family along for the ride.
Unlike pretty much every other supercar in the history of supercars, the Savage Rivale Roadyacht GTS has four doors and four seats. The Roadyacht GTS even cleanly completes the chick magnet trifecta in that it's a convertible.
When I first stumbled upon the Roadyacht, I was immediately suspicious. Many an automaker tries to gift itself the cachet of the "supercar" epithet without actually making a car that's all that super. Surely, with the added weight of rear doors, rear seats and convertible configuration, there's no way the Roadyacht could actually be a red-blooded supercar.
A look at the car's spec sheet reveals that Savage Rivale may have just built itself a legitimate four-door supercar, though. The car is powered by a 6.2-liter V-8 that Savage tunes as high as 670 bhp. Despite its four-door build, the Roadyacht weighs just 2,820 lbs. (1,280 kg) at the curb - well lighter than many two-door supercars, including the composite-heavy Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4.
That combination is enough for Savage to jot down a 0-to-62 mph (100 km/h) time of 3.4 seconds and a top speed of more than 205 mph (330 km/h). Both those numbers are comfortably "super."
In terms of design, the Roadyacht GTS pieces a carbon fiber body together atop a chrome molybdenom chassis. It uses two wing doors up front and two suicide wing doors in back. The car rides on lightweight magnesium-carbon fiber wheels and leaves its mark on the Earth through a titanium exhaust system. Judging by the initial renderings and photos, you won't have to look to hard to pick up your ladies in this one - they'll be able to spot the bright, vibrant colors from blocks away.
Savage Rivale is still testing and fine-tuning the Roadyacht and will officially unveil the model next year at a major Middle Eastern auto show, though it has yet to announce which one. The company hasn't released pricing details publicly just yet, but has stated that it has taken three orders for the car. It plans to begin deliveries in 2013.
Savage Rivale released a new teaser of the Roadyacht recently, showing a joyride in and around Monaco. Lest you think I was the smug swine that thought of the car full of ladies storyline, the video shows that Savage had that idea long before I did.
