ItalDesign Giugiaro Parcour concept

It looks a bit like a donk, but there’s a Lambo under the skin…

This is the Parcour concept from VW-owned stylists, ItalDesign Giugiaro. And, if you'll excuse the appalling pun, it's got Lamborghini running gear.

Yep, this funktacularly donkish sporting SUV concept's got a 542bhp 5.2-litre V10 and AWD drivetrain from a Lambo, blending all the good bits from an SUV, crossover, GT and sports car.

It's 4530mm long, 2070mm wide, and 1335mm high (not a million miles from a Range Rover Evoque) but a whole lot lower. But it is adjustable, it'll rise and fall hydraulically from 210mm to 330mm, and there's four different modes - comfort, off-road, winter and track.

At a piffling 1550kg, it looks like it's focused largely on the latter... It'll hit 0-100kph in 3.6 seconds and top out at 320kph. The enormo 22-inch rims also hide pushrod-style suspension. And as Mr Clarkson will testify, they're "better in literally every way".

Want this to reach production, TopGear.commers?
