Exclamation The new 610 hp Fornasari RR600 off-roader

An Italian firm Fornasari , has come up with a 610hp vehicle for going very fast offroad. It is powered by a Corvette based 6.0L V8 engine which churns out 610hp and 552lb-ft of torque. The looks are a bit ho-hum.. the coupish look doesnt suit off-roaders.




Here is the source.

looks like its been 'inspired' from a lot of models!
the air vents under the hood - Cayenne Turbo
Headlamps - Jag
Bonnet - F575 and the corvette (minus the airvent)
rear looks like a Fiat unfinished!

also the groundclearance looks a lot close to a sedan than an offroader...
i think the only impressive thing about the car is 610hp!

And don't forget the 552 lb-ft of torque.
That's a lot of torque!!!
Though I agree, not enough ground clearance for an off-roader.

Also, the hood kinda reminds me of the 1963 Corvette Stingray.

I didn't expect something so dire-looking from Italy.
