A nthony Jannarelly you don't know? But certainly some of his previous work. The Frenchman drew the Lykan Hypersport and Fenyr Supersport super sports car for W Motors, and he also designed the Zarooq Sand Racer. In 2016, Jannarelly launched his first own car: The Design-1, a simple, lightweight two-seater for the racetrack. The sports car is now also coming to Great Britain, where it will debut at the Salon Privé in the garden of Blenheim Palace in September 2019.

Curb weight of 760 or 810 kilograms

As a partner for technical development Jannarelly Frederic Juillot, who already took on this part in the Zarooq Sand Racer. The technical concept of the Design-1 is simple. An open body made of GRP or, for a surcharge, carbon fiber laminate is placed over a steel tubular space frame. The optional hardtop is always made of carbon. So lightweight construction is the key, which is also expressed in the curb weight of 810 kilograms (760 kilograms with CFRP body).
