Jannarelly Design-1

The Jannarelly Design-1 Is the UK Sports Car of Your Dreams

Lightweight, Fast, and Fun

Many would say a good sports car has to be lightweight and have rear-wheel-drive at least. Well, that’s the basis for the Jannarelly Design-1, but this car has much more than just those two things. It’s made of either a composite material or carbon fiber and located behind the driver is a 3.5-liter, Nissan-sourced V6.

The engine isn’t some crazy billion horsepower mill. It makes a strong, but modest by sports car standards, 325 hp. Pair that with the curb weight of either 1,675 pounds or 1,785 pounds depending on the materials, and you have a car that will do a 0-62 mph sprint in just 3.9 seconds. 

Jannarelly plans to unveil the Design-1 in full at the UK debut at Salon Privé. That event will take place from September 5 to 8. Anthony Jannarelly sounded excited about the car’s reveal in this quote on Carscoops:

I was often asked if I drove a Lykan and the more I said no, the more I wondered what kind of car I would like to drive on a daily basis. I started sketching some ideas during a flight and then met my now partner, Frederic Juillot, who made boats and composite parts and is also based in Dubai. Such was the enthusiasm, that we decided to go the whole way and launch our own sports car brand and so Jannarelly was born.

The car can be had in a wide variety of configurations. These include a hardtop, soft top, and even a low-level windshield speedster version. The exterior and interior of the car can be extensively customized as the customer wants. This makes the Jannarelly perfect for anyone who wants a seriously special car.
