Fastest Snake in the Desert – Zarooq “Sand Racer”
The Zarooq “Sand Racer” is the first car made in the UAE and specifically designed for the desert. It weighs 950 kg and the 3.5l V6 delivers from 300 to 500hp, with a 45 cm suspension travel to ease dune crossing.
It is a true racing car yet it is road legal, closed and with AC. It has a stunning body which was designed by Anthony Jannarelly, the same designer as the Lykan Hypersport, the star car used in “Fast and Furious 7”. It is made in the UAE in partnership with Jannarelly & Juillot Special. The high performance chassis was designed with Campos Racing GP2 and winners of the Formula E world championship.
The name was inspired by the Schockari Sand Racer, the fastest snake in the desert, in Emirati: Zarooq
