Lykan HyperSports designer reveals a new roadster and it will be launched in February 2016 in Dubai, it seems a new sports car brand on the horizon. We have heard similar statements many times, but things could be a bit more serious as the imagination behind this project are already successful in their respective industry. The Jannarelly marque is an idea of the lead designer behind the W Motors Lykan HyperSport, Anthony Jannarelley and Frederic Juillot, owner of carbon fibre parts producer.
Just to add to your knowledge, Lykan HyperSport was featured in the movie “Furious 7”. Remember the Red-Coloured car jumped between three towers, and this scene mainly featured Vin Diesel and Late Paul Walker. This new brand has a deep focus on “automotive emotions”, it will be all about “self-expression and creativity”. Now, the duo is announcing its first joint project, giving it a name of “Design-1”. The design aesthetic is somewhat like a retro- styled roadster, inspired by 1950s and 60s roadsters.
This 2-seater roadster will be underpinning a steel tubular frame, and structural aluminium panels for the chassis and it will be packed with a mid-rear V6 DOHC 24-valve engine. Anthony Jannarelley explained, most of the body will be made of fibreglass and carbon fibre, as the classic design and the modern materials blend into a “car with a soul”.
Currently, the two specialists are giving the finishing touches to the first prototype that will be ready in early February and if everything goes according to plan, the vehicle will also be distributed to Europe and US.
