Savage Rivale Roadyacht reborn as GLM G4 electric sports car

It’s been a while since we last heard from Dutch supercar startup Savage Rivale.

The company made headlines in 2011 when it unveiled a four-door, four-seat convertible supercar called the Roadyacht GTS.

It rode on Savage’s own chassis and featured a powertrain borrowed from the Corvette but never reached production. Savage lists factors such as high development costs, lack of a bespoke powertrain and lack of brand heritage as key reasons why the project never took off.

Savage has since changed its focus to work on pure design, not only for the automotive segment but also luxury villas and yachts. The Roadyacht GTS isn’t dead, though, as Japanese electric car startup Green Lord Motors (GLM) has launched an electric version of the car. Some readers will recall GLM already has an electric sports car on sale in the form of the Tommykaira ZZ EV.
