Small Middle Eastern car company Zarooq has just unveiled its potent off-roader dubbed the Sand Racer. While the car has been designed with a focus on tackling some of the world’s toughest terrain, it is completely road legal.
The Zarooq Sand Racer has been designed in the United Arab Emirates by Anthony Jannarelly who also designed the Lykan Hypersport. Beneath the skin, the car features a performance steel chassis and the engine is centrally-mounted. That engine is a 3.5-litre V6 pumping out between 300 and 500 hp depending on specification.
Alongside the impressive engine, the Sand Racer has been designed to be very light and therefore utilises a number of components produced from lightweight carbon fibre. All told, it tips the scales at a mere 950 kg.
Zarooq claims that the first deliveries will commence in early 2016 with pre-orders already open.
