2nd GTR shipped…

It’s a sad day to see another GTR leaving its home, but it will bring a lot of smiles to many people all around the world. This is the last GTR to be built (#2 of 2).

We want to shift our brand image away from racing and emphasize our exotic Gran Tourer character. We now only offer the 4 door Roadyacht coupe and the convertible GTS.

2016 will be a year that will change our path for the future. Our 2 demo cars will be finished and homologated by the end of Summer.  The next step will be extensive road testing all across Europe. The successor of the Roadyacht GTS is already in the making.

Untill that time, enjoy our new 3D car configurator and website.

Roots and Origin

From the most beautiful sceneries of the world situated on the Côte d’Azur, there is a vibe that energized us to create the ultimate projects.

We design & create ‘social’ projects such as sports cars, yachts and villas. Projects that should be shared & celebrated in good company.

… Beyond Exotic…

Roadyacht gts

High performance is essential for a supercar and therefore by definition not a unique trait. Our endeavor is not only to come up with a new supercar design, but to create a new supercar genre: 4 seat 4 door convertible coupe. A sleek coupe which can be ‘Topless on demand’ by the push of a button.

Inspired by the indescribable yachting culture comes the Roadyacht GTS. In a world of superlatives everyone tries to stand out and be extraordinary, the limited special!

Our lightweight Savage Rivale cars use standard benchmark features such as a 600+ horsepower V8 engine, a modular hybrid monocoque chassis with integrated safety cell and ceramic brakes.

Our vision, however, is unique…

The Roadyacht GTS, the ‘social’ supercar  …

2012 Promo video

4 years ago we decided to create a video to show our brand image so we spent some time in the south of France with a small crew and some drones, this is what happened:

Track Testing Prototype 001

The first prototype is subjected to the first performance tests on the drift parcours at Weeze Airport Germany. Racing driver Yelmer Buurman helps us with the improving of the handling characteristics.

Prototype # 001

After 8 months of hard work 18 hours a day 6 days a week, the first prototype is finished. On the 1st of April in 2009 Prime Minister Balkenende unveils the car during the AutoRai.

From 2D to 3D

 

The next 6 months the duo spent their time carving the clay model going back and forth. The 2D sketches and 3D clay model are used to put the car into the virtual world to scale it up to real live dimensions. During this time all design problems are tackled on the fly. Door hinge constructions, sitting positions and engine lay out are some of the big hurdles that have to be taken. In retrospect this was the time with the steapest learning curve.

Concept becomes reality

Emile Pop meets Justin de Boer during his product design studies  and together they create the concept of a 4 door convertible supercar.

They immediately share an entrepreneurial enthusiasm, which enables the duo to secure funding and partners to start their voyage. In the first 6 months, a clay model is carved out to visualize the exterior. At that time, the company is just a two man show and realizing the dream still seems impossible.

 

Inspiration leads to an idea

In 2005, riding along the coastal roads on the Côte d’Azur, Emile Pop was struck by a spark of inspiration. He realizes that while many people can have fun on speedboats and yachts, only 2 can fit in supercars.

It was then and there, that Emile decides the time is right for a new breed of ‘social’ supercars, bearing the following hallmarks:

  • Convertible
    4 seats

    4 doors
    Yacht-like interior
    In your face exterior
