Yes, it's also street legal.

Remember the wild Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato off-road supercar? Lamborghini built the off-road Huracan as a prototype, but it could enter production in the future. But now our off-road supercar fantasies have already come true.

Laffite Supercars, a company founded by professional racing driver Bruno Laffite and his wife Laetitia Laffite has built what it describes as the "first all-terrain street-legal supercar that delivers immense power, exceptional performance and a luxurious appeal, all in one package." Say hello to the Laffite X-Road, which is essentially a hardcore Dakar prototype racer for the road.

Powering the X-Road is a General Motors LS3 6.3-liter V8 that produces 470 horsepower in the base X-Road and 720 hp in the range-topping version. Power is sent through either a five-speed sequential or a six-speed paddle shifter gearbox. The rolling chassis was created and engineered by G-TEC directed by renowned racing engineer Philippe Gautheron and the Team Virage Group racing team has tested and fine-tuned the all-terrain supercar for several years.

With up to 700 hp and weighing just 2,866 pounds, the X-Road has the power-to-weight ratio of a supercar at 4.09 lbs/hp. Laffite hasn't released any 0-62 mph times, but claims the X-Road delivers "the best-ever performances for an All-Terrain ready to hit the road" and hit a top speed of 143 mph.

A fully electric version of the X-Road is also available, but no specifications have been released. With 17-inches of suspension travel, the X-Road can jump like a Dakar rally prototype in the desert. But unlike Darkar prototypes, the X-Road is street legal, meaning it can be driven on the freeway and streets in comfort.

Production of the X-Road will take place at Laffite's LA plant and will be limited to just 30 units. Pricing starts at $465,000, while the fully electric version starts at $545,000. Customer deliveries will start at the end of 2020.
