What's pushing supercar manufacturers to enter the SUV market?
Well we know SUV's are in demand, so for market share and company revenue growth its an option for supercar manufacturers to grow. However will this not take away from the 'ideal' of what these brands originally stand for?
Power, speed, beauty, status, agility and elegance? Will it kill the supercar language of down force, bhp and kph or will it just add to it?
Only time will tell but below are some of the options you could be faced with in the near future should you be in the market for an upmarket SUV. Some are already in existence, some close to production and others just concepts but all supercar brands are involved in a common thought process.
Before I start I just want to say that yes Gemballa have modified a Ferrari Enzo which is a sin to most supercar enthusiasts but one thing already off the bat is how much better the Enzo looks with this kit.
For me, the Enzo although a awesome machine always skipped in the looks department. Yes I wont argue its an amazing machine and reviews rate it to be amazing but looks where always a little 'off' in my opinion.
However with this modified version from Gemballa named the Gemballa MIG-U1, the looks hit the spot for me. Amazing looking and 700hp is a recipe for fun! The bespoke service will also give all clients the tailored options inside and out making it a unique vehicle. Also only 10 will be done due to the time it takes to modify this car.
The only question I ask is people that own Enzo's will they ever consider this mod? Maybe the playboys but Ferrari enthusiast I really doubt it.
