Dubai Roadster on the works

Dubai is the place where wealth is in its element. Luxury and exclusivity are the keys to get noticed around there. The automobile world is not something that can miss from the equation, especially because the sheiks love fine art that can very well be found in a vehicle. Until now they chose brands such as Lamborghini, Maserati, McLaren etc. and it was about time they invented something of their own. All their dreams are set in the so called Dubai Roadster, the first Emirati built supercar, which is still in its early stages of production.

As expected, nothing ordinary can come from Dubai, so this roadster is amazing. The vehicle will be available for sale in the beginning of next year at the Dubai Motor Show. The production plan so far is twenty-five examples and it literally begins from scratch. All the clients come from Emirati. The supercar features a tubular chassis, which will be combined with fiberglass and carbon-fiber panels. In addition, it will be set on motion by a 400 horsepower (294 kW) engine, and will sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds.

The next step with the Dubai Roadster is to submit it to full crash testing. The team that designed the supercar aims at a Euro 5 certification. This means that it will be a road car, too. At first, the chassis was decided to be manufactured from aluminum. Now, the new thing is that t will be replaced with titanium. Although it is a more expensive material, it is stronger, lighter and more durable. And money is not a problem for the possible Dubai customers. So this roadster might turn out to be a real success!
