GFG Style Kangaroo Is An Electric “Hyper-SUV” With 483 HP

The Geneva Motor Show always attracts some weird and wacky concepts and the GFG Style Kangaroo is definetely one of them at this year’s event.

Attendees at a recent concours event in Switzerland caught a glimpse of the car over the last weekend, with the company releasing along the way official images and specifications for the vehicle. Dubbed an ‘electric hyper-SUV’, the GFG Style Kangaroo is unlike any other vehicle you’ve laid eyes on.

The electric platform underpinning the vehicle has been co-developed with CH Auto and houses two 180 kW batteries delivering the equivalent of 483 hp and 442 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque. Power is sent to the ground through all four wheels, allowing the Kangaroo to jump to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.8 seconds. The vehicle also includes a 90 kWh battery pack that’s said to offer up a range exceeding 450 km (279 miles).

You’ve never seen a supercar look like this

Also making the GFG Style Kangaroo unique is its suspension system. Drivers of the hyper-SUV can select ‘Racing’ mode which drops the car’s ride height to 140 mm (5.5-inch). Next is a ‘Road’ suspension setting where the ride height is raised to 190 mm (7.4-inches), and an ‘Off-Road’ mode where the suspension rises to 260 mm (10.2-inches).

GFG Style claims that when the Kangaroo is driven in its Racing and Rode configurations, the shock absorbers work with a single spring. When Off-Road mode is selected, the shock absorbers work with two springs in series.

Most of the Kangaroo’s exterior is made from carbon fiber but there are polycarbonate fenders. Among the key exterior styling details are butterfly doors, narrow headlights and taillights, and a sharp front bumper. The car also includes large 22-inch wheels with Pirelli Scorpion tires and has a number of sensors on the roof to enable autonomous driving functions.

Inside, the Kangaroo features three large displays: one used for a digital gauge cluster, a second for a wide screen above the gauge cluster, and a third vertical screen that controls all the infotainment functions.

GFG style hasn’t said if it has any interest in bringing the Kangaroo to the road.
