Fornasari Loses The Plot With New RR99 Crossover

Follow Viknesh

Italian coachbuilder Fornasari is no stranger to MotorAuthority, but its new RR99 luxury crossover has certainly got us wondering.

Wondering what must have been going through the minds of its designers, and wondering who on earth would want to buy it.

First revealed at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show back in March, the Fornasari RR99 is described as a luxury grand tourer with off-road ability. Nothing wrong with this.

The problem is that Fornasari’s designers have selected elements from a handful of different vehicles and fused them together to form this monstrosity. Obvious borrowed elements include the Lamborghini Murcielago tail-lights, Lexus IS F stacked exhaust tips, BMW body with included Hofmeister kink, Aston Martin headlights and hood and finally, a Jaguar XK inspired bumper.   

Under the hood is a GM-sourced 6.0-liter V-8 rated at 610 horsepower. This is enough to propel the 4,000 pound RR99 from 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds and see it reach a top speed of 174 mph.

For anyone insane enough to want to buy it, Fornasari is currently taking orders.

  1. it also looks like a Corvette that was eating too much cheeseburger very unattractive.

  2. An ex-Ssanyong designer..?!?

  3. Another car targeting people in third world countries who have amassed huge amounts of money but aren't yet cultured enough to cultivate taste.

  4. I worked there as modeller!! You are wrong on some details as bumper and exhaust! And the doors comes from a Jaguar XF!
    I work on the Racing Buggy with 2 friends and our priorities were to change this kind of details and try to make the design model agressiver. For the design you can think what you want!
