Feast your eyes on the Zarooq Sand Racer 500GT, an off-road, street-legal supercar packing a 6.2-liter V8 that generates 518 horsepower and 487 lb-ft of torque. The engine is connected to a five-speed sequential manual gearbox, which drives the rear wheels to enable a top speed of 137 mph. Helping matters in the speed department is the Sand Racer’s curb weight of just 1,300 kilograms (2,866 pounds), achieved through the use of a tubular chassis and Mansory-designed carbon fiber body shell. Based in the United Arab Emirates, Zarooq Motors will make just 35 examples of the Sand Racer 500GT, with prices starting at a jaw-dropping $450,000. First deliveries are expected to take place at the end of the year.
