Jannarelly launch retro-style Design-1

Created by Anthony Jannarelly, the new 300bhp Design-1 is a back-to-basics car, combing retro styling with raw driving appeal.

Although it looks like a sixties-style sports car, the Design-1 boasts a 422bhp/tonne power-to-weight ratio that’s close to a Ferrari 458 Speciale.  The naturally aspirated 3.5 litre V6 engine delivers 0-62mph in 4 seconds and a top speed of 135mph.

Weighing just 710kg, thanks to its carbon fibre construction, the Design-1 also features fully adjustable suspension, LED lights and Toyo R888 track-ready tyres.

Priced around £45,000, the Design-1 can be customised in both design and technical specification at additional cost.
