The Sbarro 4×4+2 Swallowed A Porsche Cayenne In Order To Live

This year’s Geneva Motor Show was packed full of gorgeous, futuristic, ultra-connected, autonomous and electrified vehicles. The Sbarro 4×4+2 concept is not one of them.

We know you’re probably scratching your collective heads right now trying to figure out what it is that you’re looking at. The concept of the car is simple, probably – it’s a six wheeler built for off-road racing. However, everything else about it just screams “Quirk City”.

Let’s start with the design, which by the way rivals that of the new Sin S1 in terms of testing our gag reflexes. As you’ve undoubtedly noticed, there are cutouts in the metal in the shape of those massive wheels, no windows except for the windshield, a ginormous bonnet and taillights that look like they belong on some classic from the mid-50s.

Inside, there are racing seats, a racing steering wheel and third seat propped up in the back. What’s really interesting about the cabin though is it tells us that the 4×4+2 started life as a first-generation Porsche Cayenne.

According to Geneva’s own designated motor show website, this concept is powered by a 5.0-liter engine, putting down 550 PS with the help of a 6-speed automatic. In case they’re off about that displacement figure, this could very well be the 4.8-liter V8 unit in the first-gen Cayenne Turbo S, which indeed had 550 PS as well as a 6-speed auto.

Now if you had to choose the lesser of two evils, would it be this concept or the Sin S1?

  • Liam Paul

    I think the designer of this thing didnt know to say no to drugs

  • ZYGIUS

    So you sayin Porsche is responsible for that totalled and salvaged trash? Its clearly seen many scratches and pounds off dusts on the leather panel and plastics, made in process off craftmanship off that thing from Sbarro.

    kill it with fire! That hole with the misplaced tire is just ridiculous.

  • manuel

    Looks like a stretched out Pizza.

    Hubless wheel was the only cool thing that came out of this sh#t -so called -design house, sbarro

  • The SIn please, at least on Sin the car body can be modified to your liking.

  • Still entertainment meant to be fun, meanwhile every year Sbarro brings car that universally dislike by everyone.

  • Also how does Sbarro survives. They don’t make cars, they don’t sell their services ans it seems every year in Geneva they manage to rent a space and show horrid cars.

    • Aporto

      It’s a Design School. That’s how ^^

      • So students actually paid Sbarro to teach them how to design a car… I haven’t heard Sbarro graduates in automakers tho…

  • Knotmyrealname

    Honda called, they want their designer back.

  • Major Lee Gassole

    I would disown my children if they were ever involved in creating something like this.
