Dubai car manufacturer Jannarelly reveals new roadster
The sports car was inspired by 1960s elements and features a Nissan 3.5-litre V6 engine which produces 320bhp and 273lb ft of torque for a 3.9sec 0-100kph time and 220kph top speed.

Dubai-based car manufacturer Jannarelly, which hand builds vehicles made from in-house and branded parts, has revealed its new Design-1 roadster set to make its UK debut at Salon Privé in September, reported Evo magazine.

The sports car was inspired by 1960s elements and features a Nissan 3.5-litre V6 engine which produces 320bhp and 273lb ft of torque for a 3.9sec 0-100kph time and 220kph top speed.

In a bid to keep it lightweight at 810kg, most of the car’s parts - which are built in Jannarelly’s Dubai factory - are constructed from material such as carbon fibre, glass fibre and aluminium.

Other features include an optional carbon fibre hardtop, Willwood brakes, lightweight carbon fibre seats, 16 inch Alloy lightweight rims, structural aluminium panels for the chassis and four-point quick release harness seats, while traction control is optional.

Prices with the carbon fibre hardtop start at £85,000 (AED388,468).

Despite coming in Le Mans barquette form, Design-1 is road legal in the UK and US, according to Jannarelly.

The car “represents the perfect balance between unfiltered driving sensations and sufficient practicality for the most sensational road trip,” according to the brand.
