The spirit of Sand Racing: Zarooq (زاروق)

The name was inspired by the Sand Racer, the fastest snake in the desert, in Emirati: زاروق

 

OUR HISTORY STARTED WITH THE DESERT RACING AND SUPERCARS IN MIND

 

The initial idea revolved on how to promote UAE motor racing, how to groom the future Emirati champions? Where do you find them today, not on a track but in the desert! This talent can only be unleashed with proper racing cars made for the desert and phenomenal looks never hurt.

 

Our motto: Desert Racing Performance with Supercar design -  a car that is made for racing in style, in the desert, while also allowing you to drive back home with.

EXCLUSIVE SUPERCARS 

Our cars have iconic design and strike the eye as being unique.It is not good enough to be performing, our cars must be absolutely stunning.
