Jannarelly Design-1, a car with retro roadster design penned by Anthony Jannarelly, a designer of cars worth several million dollars, will be distributed in the United States starting November of this year. The first edition will be priced at $84,000, which is much higher than its price in Russia, Middle East and Europe where it sells for only $55,000.
Jannarelly Design1 was made by an automaker based in Dubaii and this is one reason why the first orders were placed by customers from the Middle East, Russia and Europe. It planned to sell the car in America but it was delayed because of inclusion of a closed car and changes such as a glass windshield option and other upgrades, according to Car Scoops.
First designed as a roadster, there has been strong public demand for one with a roof made of carbon fiber. The light weight roofing caused the Jannarelly Design-1 to maintain its light weight despite the addition to its body. While the original Jannarelly Design-1 has no roof, there was a high demand for a closed version. To give in to the demand without making the car too heavy, a carbon fiber material will be used for the roof. However, there was no clear information as to whether the top can be removed or not, according to Motor Authority.
The Jannarelly Design-1 is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine from Nissan, producing 304 horsepower matched with a 6-speed manual transmission. Made mostly of carbon fiber, the car is lightweight and can go up to 60 miles per hour in less than four seconds, with a top speed of 135 miles per hour. This car may not be that fast but one attraction is the fact that it is only made-to-order and the buyer can customize it, according to Handi.Tech.
With the Jannarelly Design-1, people buy a car that is track-ready as well as legal in the streets of the U.S.
