Shelby Supercars went to this year’s Dubai International Motor Show with the intention of raising awareness about the amount of passion and effort that the company is constantly putting into its high-performance engineering, and also to try to find a distributor for its new Tuatara in the region.
What nobody expected was for ten rich people to buy the car on the spot. With a prohibitive price of $1.3 million, the Tuatara was not designed for the average buyer. Its success at the show was remarkable, and for good reasons too: the supercar boasts 1,350 horsepower and a top speed of 275 mph. The 6.6-liter V8 is also said to help the car reach 200 mph in less then 16 seconds.
Even though it raised a total of $13 million, the amazing Tuatara was not the only car that attracted numerous lush spenders. Lamborghini’s Aventador was also very successful, and charmed fourteen new buyers.
