Newly launched, Naran Automotive, which sells itself as a manufacturer of ultra-high performance cars, has revealed the exterior design of its first model – The Naran.
The company stated “The four-seater hyper-coupé will deliver an authentic GT3-style driving experience for the road when it arrives next year. Combining uncompromising performance and dynamics of a track-focused hypercar, with opulent ultra-luxurious materials inside and out.”
Just 49 of the all-wheel-drive, front-mid engined hyper-coupé vehicles will be built. Each vehicle will be individually tailored and customised to the personal taste of the collector, including the designation of a bespoke model name.
Naran Automotive assembled a team from the pinnacle of automotive design, motorsport, material innovation and powertrain development to create The Naran. Jowyn Wong, founder of Wyn Design and visionary behind the Apollo IE and De Tomaso P72, is leading the design, while colour and materials design is being tailored by Kate Montgomery, former Aston Martin Lagonda designer.
The bespoke 5.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine is being built in Germany by Racing Dynamics and development of vehicle dynamics is being overseen by EY3 Engineering and Daniel Mense, renowned for his work on the NIO EP9 – the electric car Nürburgring lap record breaker.
Power is delivered by an all-wheel-drive system and The Naran will be capable of 0-60mph in less than 2.3 seconds, 0-100mph in 4.56 seconds and an expected top speed of over 230mph, with the 5.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine producing 1,048 bhp and 1,036Nm of torque. The motorsport-inspired aerodynamic package helps produce an industry-leading 1,377kg of downforce, exceeding that of a GT3 race car.
