Giugiaro (Volkswagen) Parcour X-GT concept looks funky

Volkswagen through ItalDesign Giugiaro presented a curious novelty at the Geneva Motor Show. It looks like some kind Rally Fighter rival and promises to offer supercar performance in all types of terrain. But the best news is that it uses parts from Lamborghini like the engine and gearbox.

The Lamborghini engine used is the 5.2 liter V10 with 550hp mated to an automatic gearbox and four-wheel drive system also borrowed from the Italian brand.

It weighs 1550kg but that doesn't mean it isn't fast. It will accelerate from 0 to 100km/h (62mph) in just 3.6 seconds, with a top speed of almost 320km/h (199mph). Cool numbers for a car that can go off-road, specially if you think that the recently introduced Porsche 911 GT3 is 0.1 seconds faster but has a lower top speed.

I specially enjoy the De Tomaso Pantera look both in the coupe or roadster version.
