There are things that are naturally paired together - such as peanut butter and jelly or kool-aid and sugar. This concept by UK based designer,Teo Song Wei, is proof that other things are better off being left alone.

In an attempt to smash together the driving pleasure of a roadster with the utility of an SUV, Wei has created a vehicle that seems to be having some major identity issues. The car features an electric hard top illustrating the roadster part of the package, while the mounting slots - fit to mount racks for various equipment such as an additional cargo box or a surfboard - take their inspiration from the SUV world.

It’s a bit strange and a bit odd, but hey, at least Wei envisioned it carrying an electric motor which would apparently make it acceptable in terms of futuristic models. Thank goodness something like this will never make it to production.

Well, even if I am one of those who would want to to see this one built, I would admit that it is unlikely going to happen. But maybe if the designer can improve this one, it might convince the manufacturers.

I would say that this one does have a lot of nice parts in it. But one thing that I really don’t like about this one is the front. It somewhat looks like a giant vacuum cleaner to me.

Yeah, I would agree. It is really easy to judge this one on paper. But who knows, someone might actually build it and it would turn out much better than what we have expected.

Well, this one indeed looks rather odd. But it does have certain sides to it that do look cool. However, we really won’t know for sure if this one is actually worth it unless it gets built.

haha.This concept is kind of funny!I can’t figure out what flashed in the mind of Teo Song Wei for combining the roadster and SUV! It really looks like a UFO!
