The first purported pictures of the Dubai Roadster have hit the web.

Reportedly the brainchild of an unnamed Emirati racer, the Dubai Roadster has an aggressive front bumper, a ventilated hood and LED-infused headlights. The knockout styling continues out back as there's a prominent rear wing and stylish rollover bars that are connected to form a mounting point for the third brake light.

We can't see much of the cabin but the model appears to have sport seats, gold trim and a flat-bottomed steering wheel with an integrated digital display.

Since the car is being billed as a BAC Mono and KTM X-Bow competitor, it slated to ride on a chromoly tubular chassis and weigh less than 750 kg (1653 lbs). Little else is known about the model but it will reportedly be powered by a transversely mounted V8 engine that develops 400 bhp (298 kW).

If everything pans out, the Dubai Roadster could be ready for the 2015 Dubai Motor Show.
