First UAE-built sports car transported to France for Le Mans race

Emirates SkyCargo airlifts the Jannarelly Design-1 which is inspired by classic sports cars of the 1960s

Emirates SkyCargo, the freight division of Emirates, has transported the first car designed and built entirely in the UAE to France where it will be exhibited during the prestigious ‘24 hours of Le Mans’ endurance race.

Design-1 is a sports car designed and built in the UAE by Jannarelly Automotive with Equation Composites – the first company to have acquired a car manufacturing licence in the country.

Inspired by the classic sports cars of the 1960s, the Jannarelly Design-1 is a lightweight retro-futuristic car built using hi-tech composite materials and is valued between $70,000 and $90,000.

Emirates SkyCargo said it worked with Prodex Worldwide to transport the car from Dubai to Lyon. Emirates SkyCargo offers a specialised transportation solution - Emirates SkyWheels – to transport high value and premium automobiles.

Emirates SkyCargo added that it regularly transports high value premium and luxury automobiles on both its passenger aircraft and freighters across its global network of over 155 destinations.

Recently, the air cargo carrier provided a bespoke Emirates SkyWheels solution to Jaguar Land Rover to transport cars from the UK to Chicago for testing.

Emirates SkyCargo operates a modern all-wide body fleet of 258 aircraft including 15 freighters.
