The production of the crazy Zarooq SandRacer 500GT has been officially launched in the United Arab Emirates, a few years after the first performance as a concept.
Typically, all new car manufacturers who want to make a brand in the industry make big promises, but not deliver, and we expected the same with the SandRacer. However, AutoGuide reported that production has begun and that the off-roader has received numerous upgrades since it was shown as a concept. While the concept was powered by a V6, the finished SandRacer 500GT uses a 6.2-liter V8 engine tuned to deliver 525 horsepower and 487 lb-ft of torque. When you scale the scale to only 2,866 pounds (1,300 kg), the SandRacer has all the ingredients to be brutally fast on the road, but as its exterior design suggests it"s off the beaten path where it is really meant to be to shine.
The off-roader rides on Intrax racing suspension, which allows up to 17.7 centimeters of travel and offers customers the opportunity to reduce and increase the driving height for road traffic when road conditions become more irreconcilable
There is no word on whether the SandRacer will be available in other markets, but in the UAE it costs the equivalent of $ 450,000. source: www.carscoops.com
