Representing an exciting addition to the UAE’s growing lineup of luxury vehicles, the Milan Red was unveiled at the Deals on Wheels showroom in Dubai.

Deals on Wheels owns exclusive rights to the sale of the Milan Red, which is a serious hypercar with some serious specifications. The Austrian company has named just four distinguished partners worldwide, of which Deals on Wheels is one. The Milan Red will be on display at the Formula One Abu Dhabi.

Commenting on the launch of the limited-edition hypercar, founder of Deals on Wheels Mohamed Redha Abdulla said, “Need for unprecedented speed is the ultimate objective of any hypercar driver, and Milan Red will be a welcome addition for the UAE. We are proud to bring this new-generation hypercar to the UAE market. With its stunning features and practical, yet modern design we’re confident that Milan Red will be a showstopper when displayed at F1 Abu Dhabi. The hypercar is the result of the best of Austrian cutting-edge technology and the fact that 18 of them are already reserved speaks of its already increasing popularity”.

The Milan Red is styled after its namesake which is a bird of prey, and as such wears a mean, sinister front fascia.

Let’s talk about the numbers then. At the heart of the Milan Red sits a 6.2-litre quad-turbocharged V8 motor that makes 1,325hp and 1,400Nm. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual clutch transmission, rocketing the car to 100kph in a mere 2.5 seconds, while 200kph comes up in 5.5 seconds. However, the Milan Red has more to give. It can clock 299kph in just  9.9 seconds!

The entire car weighs just 1,300kg which partly explains its great turn of speed. The drivetrain is designed and engineered by AVL which supplies automotive parts to global firms and Formula One teams. For the first time in the history of street-legal cars, the Milan Red gets its wishbones in carbon to cut down weight even more. Front wheels are 20-inch units while the rear gets 21-inch wheels. Brakes are from Brembo and feature carbon-ceramic discs.

There is a suite of sophisticated electronic driving aids aboard the Milan Red to rein in all that power, but we’ll focus on the fetchingly-named driving modes: Glide, Hunt, and Attack. It’s about time someone got creative with automotive jargon, and seeing as the car is named after a bird of prey, Milan Automotive has hit the nail right on the head. The only catch to all the goodness is that the company will only produce 99 examples of this gorgeous hypercar and the price tag is well north of $2 million a pop.
