ZAROOQ SANDRACER 500GT
SandRacer, a game-changing supercar born in the desert.“
All Supercars look fantastic, feature luxurious racing-inspired interiors, and are exclusive high-performance machines. Their common denominator is that they are suited to racetracks and certainly not designed for speed bumps.
Zarooq Motors make supercars which will leave you breathless as you accelerate on a week-end track day and which you can also take for a luxurious commute in the city. What makes SandRacers unique is that they are capable of handling any off-road terrain, even the toughest dunes of the Arabian Desert where they were born.”
