Did anyone think that present times make it difficult for a carmaker to sell a supercar with a shameless price? We have to tell you that the answer is a big “No”, with Shelby Supercars being the perfect example.
According to Gulf News, the company recently managed to convince 10 customers that its Tuatara is the car to buy, managing to register sales of $13 (EUR9.7) million. Shelby Supercars attended the Dubai International Motor Show, looking to just gather attention, but the company discovered that there was real demand for the Tuatara, selling the ten units over a period of five days.
