Korres Project 4 Looks like Some Sort of Moon Buggy

I've never heard of Dimitris Korres, but the automotive designer has produced a very interesting vehicle. Photographs and details of his latest project called the Korres Project 4 have surfaced and it looks like some sort of high-tech transportation for astronauts on the surface of the moon.

Apparently, the finished vehicle will actually have body panels. The vehicle seen the photos above is a preproduction prototype. I rather like all the exposed components myself. The vehicle has a simple interior that will reportedly be completely different when the vehicle arrives in 2014. The designer plans to produce 50 units for sale in North America in the Middle East.

The vehicle is a two-seat ride weighing about 3500 pounds. Power comes from a 7.0-liter naturally aspirated LS7 engine from the Corvette Z06 producing 505 hp. The designer says that the car will reach 62 mph in 3.8 seconds with a top speed of 186 mph. The car is all-wheel drive with an option for rear wheel drive only and uses a six-speed manual. The designer says that it will be the first supercar able to drive off-road.
