With Lamborghini and Rolls-Royce jumping onboard the high-end SUV bandwagon, it seems inevitable that a host of other automakers will do the same in the coming years. With this in mind, an independent design company dubbed Camal has released renderings and details of its proposed SUV.
Called the Ramusa HyperSUV, the car is distinct from all other SUV and crossovers on the market as it is a two-seater and mid-engined. Camal has designed the car to be installed with the quad-turbo 3.5-liter V12 engine of the Bugatti EB110 with additional power coming from an electric motor driving the front wheels to create a total of 800 hp.
All up, the Ramusa HyperSUV is 4320 mm long, 2020 mm wide and 1300 mm high and comes complete with an impressive 250 mm of ground clearance. If one were to take away that off-road oriented ride height, the vehicle would essentially be a mid-engined supercar. With an internal combustion engine from a pre-VW Group era Bugatti.
Design wise, it appears to feature quite a long wheelbase complemented with short front and rear overhangs. The front fascia is characterized by two large air intakes and the absence of a traditional grille. A wedge-shaped bonnet with large air extractors also catches the eye as do the distinct LED headlights with outer daytime running lights.
Meanwhile the sides are home to a set of massive wheels and brakes as well as angular doors and sharp skirts tapering back to the squared rear-wheel arches. The rear is just as interesting as the front thanks to taillights seemingly inspired by those from the Aston Martin DB10 as well as two large, triangular shaped tailpipes and large air vents.
Will the Ramusa HyperSUV ever become a reality? It’s incredibly unlikely, but it is cool to see what an independent design firm thinks the future could hold for performance SUVs.
