Back in 2013, Giugiaro introduced a supercar powered by Lamborghini Gallardo’s engine, but with the ground clearance of a crossover. Parcour never made it to the production, but the concept received a lot of praise for its practicality. This was back when Giugiaro owned the Italian design house called with Italdesign Giugiaro. The automotive hall-of-famer sold all his shares to Audi and is no longer associated to the company. Six years later, Giugiaro and his son Fabrizio have come up with something on similar lines. The GFG Kangaroo Hyper SUV is a jacked-up electric vehicle that combines the performance of a supercar and utility of a vehicle that can pounce over uneven surfaces.
On the onset, the Kangaroo looks absolutely fantastic. The Kangaroo is designed around an aluminum space frame with carbon fiber bodywork. Upfront, the GFG Kangaroo Hyper SUV features slim headlights and an aerodynamically enhanced bumper. Instead of slats, the bumper features honeycomb mesh. The Kangaroo looks wide and low slung, and the ’supercar’ effect is characterized by the body’s flowing lines.
The electric supercar rides on massive 22-inch Pirelli Scorpion rollers, which may not be a good idea for a vehicle that can go off-road.
The GFG Kangaroo Hyper SUV doors are an art in itself. Even though the Kangaroo features just two seats, the front suicide doors and the gullwing-fashion glass window, if I may call it so, create a scissor-like opening when they work in tandem. The exposed carbon below the doors features the moniker vinyl on either ends.
In the back, the Kangaroo’s highlight is the giant mesh grille. It makes up for the lack of one at the front. Giugoaro has embedded the turn-signal lights into the mesh grille and flaking the license plate.
GFG says that each dot is a prism with an LED light and all of them work in cohesion to create a 'jewel' effect.
Now, that’s fancy. The recessed taillights follow the same design philosophy as the slim headlights in the front. The sportiness of the Kangaroo is further enhanced by the large air outlet.
As expected, the cabin is as futuristic as you can expect from an EV and a supercar. The color-code matches with the orange on the outside.
The dashboard features three displays, each one allocated with a duty of its own.
The first one is placed under the crossbeam and acts as a giant rear-view mirror, showing the feed from the rear-facing camera. The second one is basically the instrument cluster, and the third one is a huge so-called infotainment system. There are two can holders right below the infotainment touchscreen, and the picture shows a fanta can placed over there. Not sure if it is a standard accessory or part of the optional package.
The Kangaroo is powered by a pair of electric motors that produce 483 horses and 501 pound-feet of torque combined.
Power is sent to all the wheels, and the Kangaroo also features an all-wheel steering for better grip and handling. GFG has plonked a 90 kWh battery pack that is good for 280 miles on a single charge.
The Kangaroo can hop to 60 mph from a standstill in 3.8 seconds, and has an electronically-governed top speed of 155 miles per hour.
GFG has offered the Kangaroo with an adjustable suspension that comes with three selectable modes - Racing, Road, and Off-road. In the ’Racing’ mode, the Kangaroo crouches and sticks to the road to hit high speeds. In the ’Road’ setting, it raises itself by 30 mm for a smooth, urban commute. And, in the off-road setting, it raises itself 260 mm above the ground, thus justifying its ’SUV’ status.
