More manufacturers are customising vehicles. Here are some fast facts about a few of the models that were showcased in the UAE last week:
The Vehicle: Luxury 4x4 RV
The Maker Dunkel Industries
The Features If you ever wondered what could be created if a motorhome mated with an off-road vehicle, this is it. Besides sleeping six passengers and entertaining them with two flat-screen TVs, this vehicle can also haul dirt bikes, all-terrain vehicles and other motorised desert toys - without a trailer.
The Vehicle: LiveRacer
The Maker Sijatec
The Features Talk about fuel efficiency. This racing simulator, which is designed for use at home, relies on a computer and built-in technology that can lift, shake and move the frame of an entire car of your choosing while you sit inside. Race tracks, including some sand-based courses for desert lovers, are displayed on the inside of the windshield.
Cost Starts at £300,000
The Vehicle: Wildcat 300STR Rover
The Maker Qt
The Features This off-roader also races on regular roads and boasts features such as an iPod dock, Bluetooth connectivity and a heated windscreen with powerful wipers to keep the view of the road clear in harsh conditions. Each customer also gets to work with an engineer at Qt on their model's specifications.
Cost Starts at £130,000
