Back in the December last year, the Dubai-based boutique car maker Jannarelly released the first renderings of their model – a retro Shelby Cobra-style roadster Design-1 for which are responsible designer Anthony Jannarelly and businessman Frederic Juillot. In the meantime, the car is officially launched (among else on two events in Dubai), and the company says that so far received 20 orders for it.
The inspiration for this two-seater were models from the sixties, and under the bonnet there’s a naturally aspirated 3.5-litre V6 with 227kW of power and 371Nm of torque. The V6 motor drives the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. Design-1 can complete the 0-100km/h dash in around 4.0 seconds and has a top speed of 220km/h.
Fiberglass and carbon fiber were used in the construction, while the price for base version starts from $ 55,000.
Deliveries begin this Summer, with the first Launch Edition will involve a series of 30 copies. If there is enough interest, the plan is to increase production to 200 pieces per year.
For distribution in Europe will take care Marcassus Sport, while the company is reportedly looking for a North American distributor.
