Check Out This New Kangaroo Electric Hyper SUV

Should be capable of reaching 155 mph (250 kph) on any terrain.

GFG Style, an automotive company founded in 2015 by legendary designer Giorgetto Giugiaro and his son Fabrizio, has teased a new concept vehicle that will be presented during next month’s Geneva Motor Show. While the Kangaroo moniker might not be the most inspirational name out there, we are promised the vehicle will have a top speed of 155 miles per hour (250 kilometers per hour)… on any terrain!

The study will take the shape of a sport utility vehicle and is actually described as an electric hyper SUV. It will seat just the driver and one passenger, and will be motivated and steered by all four wheels. The electric car will ride on an advanced aluminum space frame covered with a carbon fiber body. The architecture for the project has been developed in cooperation with CH Auto.

The first teaser image of the car makes us wonder whether the Italian design studio is trying to fool us with the SUV term in the press release or not, as the car seen in the attached photo doesn’t seem to look like a high-riding machine. Of course, this is just a computer rendering so the actual car, from a different perspective, might look entirely different.

“Currently we are only revealing the ‘eyes’ of this extraordinary concept that, as in our tradition, will be completely unveiled in Geneva and drivable after the show on any terrain,” says Fabrizio Giugiaro.

In 2018, the Turin-based GFG Style unveiled its pilot concept, the Sibylla, at the Geneva Motor Show. An updated Sibylla GG 80 version of the same study was then displayed in Paris bringing “beautiful design with beautiful energy, to signpost the future of mobility.”

150 “on any terrain”. Why?

250 kph “on any terrain”… seems like the Kangaroo name fits, especially its assumed meaning… “I don’t know” 🙂

That’s about a three hour drawing project in a paint program. I’d hardly call this an announcement. I speculate that this Kangaroo has nothing in its pouch to back up the specification claims.

Oh, come on. Drawing a car that can go 155 mph on any terrain is not that easy.

“Not that easy”, Especially with four wheel steering!
