Range Rover Velar "Skeleton Monster" Shows Extreme Stance

Let's face it, a build like the one portrayed in this rendering wouldn't make too much sense. And while we could say the same about some of the SUVs and crossovers that have flooded the market, this is not the point. Instead, we should focus on the fact that seeing such projects transitioning from the screen to the real world is only a matter of time.

Not least thanks to social media, the need for automotive customization seems to be greater than ever, which is why we end up with wacky carmaker-backed proposals such as the Nissan Juke R or independent efforts like this all-terrain-wannabe Lamborghini Huracan. Unlike Lamborghini's brilliant Huracan Sterrato concept, which can properly get off the beaten path, this build was completed with the sole purpose of putting on a show. 

As such, while transformations such as the ones seen in this pixel portrait would obviously mess with the practicality assets that should define an SUV such as the Range Rover Velar, we wouldn't be surprised to see a vlogger coming up with such a project.

Meanwhile, the rendering comes to address one of the greatest drawbacks of the segment, namely the hefty scale footprint, albeit in its own way. Hey, it's not all about removing the doors and the hood since many parts of the vehicle now seem to come in carbon fiber form. And we must thank digital artist Yasid Oozeear for the giggles delivered by these images.

And why would such a vehicle, which we nicknamed "Skeleton Monster," need a massive wing and a ride height that normally defines race cars? Well, perhaps the contraption would attempt to claim a Pikes Peak record, like Land Rover did with the Range Rover Sport back in 2013. Come to think of it, that would also explain the downforce-adding Turbofan rear wheels, as well as the roll cage.
