Jannarelly Design-1 is one man’s passion for the perfect car and will be launched at the forthcoming Salon Privé 2019 from 5-8 September in the grounds of the stunning Blenheim Palace.
Anthony Jannarelly designed the car for pure driving pleasure; leading roles are given to decadence and aesthetics with the 1960s Italian thoroughbred doppelgänger embracing the deepest qualities required to provide an exhilarating driving experience.
Using skills from designing the incredible W Motors Lykan HyperSport, Jannarelly has created a car that looks stunning but also carefully integrates the age-old rear-wheel-drive configuration so many sports car enthusiasts drool over.
Built on a steel /aluminium tubular structure, the car weighs in at just 810kg in composite form or 760kg in all-carbon. Its 3.5 Litre Nissan-derived V6 delivers a healthy 325bhp which is enough to propel the Jannarelly to 62mph in less than 4 seconds.
When asked what inspired him to create the Design-1, Anthony Jannarelly said:
“I was often asked if I drove a Lykan and the more I said no, the more I wondered what kind of car I would like to drive on a daily basis. I started sketching some ideas during a flight and then met my now partner, Frederic Juillot, who made boats and composite parts and is also based in Dubai.
“Such was the enthusiasm, that we decided to go the whole way and launch our own sports car brand and so Jannarelly was born.”
Initially, the idea was for Anthony to build just one car – for himself, however, this was just the beginning of the story. Their combined skills in design and composites quickly saw the Design-1 come to fruition and so, settling on a 3.5 Litre naturally-aspirated Nissan V6 engine for the power plant, they began to communicate details about the car via the internet to gauge interest.
Jannarelly offers a variety of different options for the Design-1 including hardtop, canopy cover and low-level windshield and both interior and exterior can be customized to the customers’ choice.
David Bagley, Co-Founder & Sales Director of Salon Privé said:
“I’m thrilled that Anthony and Thomas Ceccaldi, Director of Jannarelly Paris have selected our event to launch the thrilling Design-1 to the UK market. In spite of our continued growth, we have been able to maintain the ambience and atmosphere that makes Salon Privé such a unique boutique event and it is this environment that I believe is perfect for presenting such a specialised brand as Jannarelly. By and large, the guests who attend the event are knowledgeable, well-heeled enthusiasts and I’m confident that they will welcome this fabulous new sports car brand when it is unveiled on the lawns of Blenheim Palace.”
