WORLDS FIRST ALL-TERRAIN HYPERCAR BEGINS MIDDLE EAST TOUR IN BAHRAIN

The Worlds first all-terrain hypercar will be introduced to prospective buyers during a Middle East tour beginning in Bahrain this weekend to coincide with the F1 Grand Prix. The hypercar is designed to give a new dimension to off road driving.

The Hunter, a 600 bhp, four-wheel drive all-terrain adventure vehicle with an unrivalled ability and performance across any landscape, is the product of a joint venture between UK based Prodrive and Mumtalakat of Bahrain. It is born out of the Bahrain Raid Xtreme (BRX) competition car driven by Sebastien Loeb in the worlds toughest motor sport race, the Dakar Rally in Saudi Arabia. The Hunter thrives in desert sand, dunes and rough mountain tracks, yet is docile enough to drive in an urban environment.

Beginning in Bahrain, the first development vehicle is touring the Middle East where customers are being offered the opportunity to drive the Hunter and confirm their personal specification for production vehicles to be delivered later this year.

The Hunter is even more powerful than the version driven by Loeb, with a 50% increase in power from the 3.5 litre V6 twin turbo engine and more suspension travel to absorb the harshest of terrain.

But while the car is even faster and more capable than the race car, it is also more refined. Ian Callum, who styled the exterior of the original competition car, has returned to the project to create a new interior more in keeping with every day use than racing.

A digital display gives the driver all the important information they need, while the centre console houses the more traditional controls found on a road car.

The Hunter is the product of over 40 years of successful off road competition at Prodrive whose chairman, David Richards, said: There are numerous hypercars on the market, however they all need good roads or even race tracks to show their performance.
