When you live a stone’s throw of the desert you need a car to have fun there. Thus was born the Zarooq Motors Sand Racer, a sort of off-road sport designed exclusively for the leisure field. It is a project based in the United Arab Emirates and will be built there with parts from local suppliers.
the moment the Sand Racer is a digital project, but you will see the light in a few first prototypes by early 2016. It is a sporty with bodywork coupe high, suspensions, reinforced wheels and the ground. There are other similar projects such as the american Local Motors Rally Fighter.
This Zarooq Sand Racer will use a body of glass fiber or carbon fiber to reduce the weight. The manufacturer ensures that they want to stay within the limit of 1,000 kilos, with a cast fairly faithful to a 40:60 front and rear respectively. Not in vain, Zarooq promises to have certain equipment of comfort such as air conditioning or sound system.
The engine is placed in a central position and is a block 3.5 V6 with an output of over 300 horsepower. Zarooq is serious and is preparing a most extensive range, where it has a place for the evolution of the engine that reaches up to 500 horses. From the beginning it will only be a machine rear wheel drive, but in the future there should be a system of all-wheel drive. An electric version is also a written plan in your roadmap.
For the moment, the Zarooq Sand Racer is a two-seater, but the manufacturer has planned to create a family arising out of this car. Later would come a Sand Racer with battle elongated and four-seater, but this will have to wait to release the initial version.
