Designs on the fast lane
A Dubai-based car designer, famous for his work on The Fast And The Furious, says he has already sold 15 models of his new limited edition hypercar, the Design 1. The French designer, Anthony Janarelly, unveiled the Design 1 in Dubai in May and since the cars have been selling well at a cool Dhs200,000 ($55,000) each. Janarelly said: “The car is a tribute to the golden age of cars. “The retro feel replicates cars of the 50s and 60s back when they were all shaped in a nice organic way like the body of a woman. “In the age of driverless cars the taste for vintage cars and more direct driving sensations is growing. “The more you move towards comfort and convenience of driverless cars the more people will want the opposite. “It’s the car you take when you want to have fun on the weekends. It’s a mixture of exclusivity with elegance.” Janarelly added that five units have already been sold in the UAE.
