The Rinspeed Chopster  the latest project from Swiss design powerhouse Rinspeed AG  was styled and built by EDAG Engineering + Design AG, a worldwide development partner of the automobile industry. The Chopster is a lifestyle-oriented luxury SUV characterized by an unusually ambitious and commanding exterior design. The EDAG designers chopped the roof of the production vehicle by some impressive 70 mm and provided the 4x4 with highly dynamic muscular sides. A new original front with large air inlets for the intercooler, distinctive side sills and a powerful rear further emphasize the ready-to-prance look of the 600-hp all-round talent. Plans to build the Chopster in an exclusive small-series production run are in the works.<p>Source: Rinspeed.com

They might be weird, but they're strangly desirable. This one looks to be no exception, other than the fish gill vents up front.
