The Hunter, the world’s first all-terrain hypercar made by Prodrive, a world-leading motorsport and advanced technology company, has been launched in Dubai.

Designed to negotiate the most demanding desert regions, the Hunter is also in its element on urban highways and in downtown traffic. Its power and versatility give the Prodrive Hunter unrivaled performance across any terrain. This makes the UAE a prime market for Prodrive, which is building a limited number of Hunters to the unique specification of individual buyers.

“We came to Dubai, to give prospective buyers the opportunity of driving the car for the first time and experience the power and all-around performance of the Hunter in their local terrain. It was good to have Mr. Nani Roma on hand to demonstrate the full performance of the Hunter and explain what makes it such a unique vehicle.”

The 600 bhp hypercar was born from the competition car driven by Mr. Nani Roma, an international rally raid star, Mr. Sebastien Loeb, nine-time World Rally Champion, and Mr. Argentine Orlando Terranova, in this year’s Dakar rally, back in January.

The hypercar is even more powerful than the rally version, boasting a 50 percent increase in power from its 3.5 liter V6 twin-turbo engine, and more suspension travel to absorb the harshest of terrain.

Additionally, it is refined with a stylish interior, better air conditioning as well as other features more in keeping with everyday use than a vehicle that was originally designed to win the world’s toughest car rally.

The car can accelerate from 0-100 kph in less than four seconds, with a top speed of nearly 300 kph. The Hunter starts at $1.4 million plus local taxes.
