Cape Town - In recent years SUVs have been taking over car markets around the world. 

Nothing illustrates this trend better than the fact that even manufactures like Alfa Romeo and Maserati now have SUVs in their line-up. 

Earlier in December 2017, Lamborghini – a brand known for its luxury supercars – has unveiled their Urus-SUV. 
The times are definitely changing; inspired by this change, we decided to see how eight sports cars would look as SUVs.

Jennings Motor Group created a list of eight concept SUVs based on modern day supercars. Check it out: 

1 2017 Ford Mustang SUV Concept

Ford Mustang is beyond a doubt one of the most iconic sports cars in the history of motoring, and it is currently the best-selling sports car in the world. The 2017 Mustang has the modern design language of the American's legendary Pony Car. 

2 Alfa Romeo 4C SUV Concept

It is said that you are not a proper petrolhead until you have owned an Alfa Romeo. Alfa brought its Stelvio-SUV to the markets, but we envisioned something even sportier for the SUV-petrolheads.  The Alfa Romeo 4C is the perfect compact sports car and deserves a tougher remake.

3 McLaren 720s SUV Concept

This car comes early in this list because it’s massively trendy at the moment. The car is beautiful, sleek and fits in perfectly with other sports cars, while still being a low-end supercar.

4 BMW i8 SUV Concept

Besides SUVs, another trend in the current car markets are hybrids. But this car is’nt on the list because it’s a hybrid, but because of the revolutionary design lines of the BMW i8. Since the i3 is a city car, the i8 is the perfect car for our SUV concept.

5 Aston Martin v12 Vantage SUV Concept

Who wouldn’t love beautiful British sports cars? The Aston Martin Vantage is a series of hand-built sports cars from the legendary carmaker. The series is much loved, and the V12 Vantage is a real beast:  So here is Jennings Motor Group's take on how the Aston Martin SUV could look.

6 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 SUV Concept

The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 looks mean and fast. And it is fast: The sportiest version (the ZL1 1LE) recorded a lap time of 7 min, 16.04 sec at Nürburgring last summer, making it the fastest Camaro on the legendary German track. This car has the right attitude and stance! 

7 Ferrari 488 SUV Concept

A list of sports cars would be incomplete without a red Ferrari. There has been a lot of speculation about a Ferrari-SUV, and Sergio Marchionne recently said in the Frankfurt motor show that the Italian brand is “dead serious” about building an SUV. However, the production decision will not be made until at least 2020. Here is our take on the Ferrari-SUV. 

8 Honda NSX SUV Concept

The Honda NSX is back! It’s a hybrid sports car with a 3.5 L twin-turbo V6 engine and three electric motors, altogether capable of close to 450kW. The transmission is a 9-speed dual-clutch semi-automatic, and the car’s body has a spec frame design made from aluminum, ultra-high strength steel, and other rigid and lightweight materials.
