If seen carefully, it glances this all-terrain supercar has many similarities with Zarooq Motors's Sand Racer that is launched in Dubai some time ago in the year of 2015.

Therefore he then decided to produce it through his own company.

While for the development of the Laffite G-Tec X-Road supercar is directed by a renowned racing engineer named Philippe Gautheron, the man behind G-Tec and Team Virage who has created and engineered the rolling chassis. As far as we know, Team Virage specialized in high-level motorsport engineering which also responsible for the Laffite Supercars' Performance Center in Spain.
