400HP Dubai Roadster Has Rich Buyers Lining Up

Emirati-built sports car will sell for over $100,000.

Rashid Al Shaali, the Emirati designer responsible for the all-new Dubai Roadster, a locally built rocket that should become the Emirates' pride and joy, says he's had many "inquiries from people saying they wanted to buy the car now." With an expected price tag of over $100,000 (400,000 Dh) and a presumed debut at the 2015 Dubai Motor Show, Al Shaali has been forced to tell potential buyers to "hold on" until the car's development is completed.

When that happens and for that price, the unique roadster is expected to come without any real doors, roof or a front windshield. What it will offer is a large V8 engine producing over 400 horsepower, combined with an ultra-low curb weight and superb acceleration.
