The bad news is production never commenced for this stunning four-seat supercar - designed in the Netherlands by Savage Rivale - and powered by a muscly V8 engine.

But all is not lost and this four-door gullwing stunner, made largely from composite materials, is now slated to be made - but as an electric car (driveline suitably modified from the earlier iteration).

Eccentric Japanese brand GLM showed the car - now called the GLM G4 - at the Paris Motor Show but it was largely overlooked by the media contingent.

Initial vehicles will be sold in Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore and GLM says it is keen to launch into North America at some stage. Indicative pricing is $291,000.

As you can see, headlines go to the technically-fascinating four gullwing-type doors (you open the front doors first to allow the rears to swing out).

The ground-hugging four-seat supercar displayed in Paris was sumptuously kitted inside with plush white leather seats (quilted of course) and a sporty flat-bottom steering wheel.

Two electric motors (front and rear) deliver 400kW/1046Nm - yes that’s a perfect 1-0-4-6 - and drive all four wheels via a multi-stage transmission and a torque-splitting system. Drive all four wheels via front and rear multi-speed transmissions either end.

Zero to 100km/h is claimed for 3.6 seconds and apparently the range between battery recharges is 419kms.
