DUBAI 18 June 2017: Emirates SkyCargo, the freight division of Emirates, has transported the first car designed and built entirely in the UAE to France where it will be exhibited during the prestigious ‘24 hours of Le Mans’ endurance race.
‘Design-1’ is a sports car designed and built entirely in the UAE by Jannarelly Automotive with Equation Composites LLC – the first company to have acquired a car manufacturing licence in the country, said Wam.
Inspired by the classic sports cars of the 1960s, the automobile is a lightweight retro-futuristic car built using hi-tech composite materials. Equation Composites uses a small team of specialists to build each car, valued anywhere between US$70,000 and US$90,000, allowing for a high degree of customisation according to the specific requirements of customers.
Emirates SkyCargo worked with Prodex worldwide, a specialist freight forwarding company providing specialist transport, logistics and warehousing services across a number of domains, including the aerospace and automotive industry, to transport the Jannarelly Design-1 from Dubai to Lyon.
Emirates SkyCargo offers a specialised transportation solution – Emirates SkyWheels – to transport high value and premium automobiles.
