Revealed: Dubai's take on the 1957 Ferrari Testarossa

Dubai-based Jannarelly Automotive has revealed a vintage-style, two-seater roadster inspired by the 1957 Ferrari Testarossa.

The Jannarelly Design-1 is a rear-wheel drive model featuring a mid-rear V6 Nissan 370z engine that produces 305bhp. Its body is mostly fibreglass and carbon-fibre.

The lightweight 700kg car was designed by Anthony Jannarelly, famous for designing Dubai’s first and only supercars, W Motors’ Lykan Hypersport and Fenyr Supersport.

Along with Jannarelly Automotive co-founder Fredric Juillot, Jannarelly is set to start production of the Design-1 this summer, with 20 orders already confirmed.

“We worked hard before the unveiling to reach the aesthetic quality the design of the first Jannarelly deserves. Some parts are still at the prototype stage. We will be pushing further for our clients' car to make sure they feel the quality and effort we put into each Jannarelly,” said Juillot.

The Design-1 was also inspired by the 1962 AC Cobra.
