Khyzyl Saleem Renders The RAV4 As An Extreme Carbon-Heavy Rally Car

Nov 18, 2020

When it was first introduced in 1994, Toyota’s RAV4 was a plucky little off-roader whose name was a designation derived from “Recreational Activity Vehicle: 4-wheel drive.” With its full-time 4-wheel drive, quick-handling, and excellent fuel economy, it made for an instant classic. Since that time, the platform has strayed from its roots considerably, becoming bigger, softer, and generally more at home in the carpool line than it is off the beaten path.

Nevertheless, the RAV4 lends itself to customization quite well, as evidenced in this render by the ever-talented concept artist Khyzyl Saleem. What started out as a Prerunner-inspired take on the compact SUV eventually evolved into what you see before you. With large swathes of carbon at the front, the roof, as well as the rear of the vehicle, this RAV4 should come in considerably lighter than its stock form. Riding on a set of massive off-road tires, the wheels barely squeeze beneath its curvaceous arches. Oh, and if you were wondering, Saleem says his creation includes air ride suspension, so it can only go up from here. Rounded out by a pair of light bars and a roof rack to match, this RAV4 cuts quite the rally car.
