Recommended Posts

Buzz in the automotive world is revving up over the Scarbo Vintage SV Rover Electric Vehicle. This high-performance vehicle, touted as the world’s first street-legal electric Hypertruck, is making waves for its unique blend of luxury, power, and off-road capabilities.


Founded by Joe Scarbo, Scarbo Vintage is renowned for its ultra-high-performance, bespoke vehicles. The SV Rover, their latest offering, is the result of nearly a decade and a half of meticulous design and development1. Initially conceived as a desert racing truck, the SV Rover has evolved into a road-legal model that combines world-class luxury with the go-anywhere capabilities of a factory-backed prerunner.


What sets the SV Rover apart is its dual-threat propulsion options: a 750-kW all-electric powertrain delivering over 1,000hp, or a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that produces an impressive 1,100hp. This power is complemented by a high- and low-range transfer case, selectable 2WD and 4WD modes, and selectable front- and rear-locking differentials.


The SV Rover’s exterior is as impressive as its performance specs. Its carbon fiber and aluminum bodywork, air-ride suspension, and Brembo 6-piston brake system make it a fortified behemoth. Inside, the vehicle boasts a digital cockpit setup with a 12.3” gauge cluster, a 12.8” multimedia display, and Alcantara interiors with billet aluminum accents.


Reportedly coming with a price tag of $1.5 million, the Scarbo Vintage SV Rover is certainly a statement piece, reflecting the bespoke nature of Scarbo’s creations. 


As the automotive world continues to evolve, vehicles like the Scarbo Vintage SV Rover are pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. What are your thoughts on this trend? Do you see the SV Rover as a game-changer in the industry, or is it just another high-priced novelty? We’d love to hear your views.
