Dubai, and all the other Gulf countries, has an insatiable thirst for shiny super and sports cars. But they are only consumers. They don’t like building things. That said, over the past few years a number of entrepreneurs have emerged from that country who are trying to change that. Royal Customs is one of them.
This tuner of high-end exotic cars has revealed its most through work yet in form of a nifty looking sports car called the Alpha One. It would be unfair to call the Alpha One a mere styling kit for the Porsche Cayman, upon which it is based. There is more to it than that. They’ve altered the looks of the Cayman deep enough to deserve more credit.
Royal Customs Alpha One features bespoke body panels including front and rear fenders, exclusive front and rear fascia, revised sills and quarter panels. The headlights come from the Porsche Panamera, and the taillights from the 911, Type 991. There are all sort of aero garnish going on as well, including a front splitter, side intakes, and a large rear wing. It sort of reminds us of the works of German Porsche specialist RUF.
The mechanicals of the car are all apparently standard Cayman, which is not a bad thing at all. They didn’t release any picture of the interior, either. But with a visual treatment like this they certainly are not going to leave the cabin standard.
Royal Customs Alpha One production is limited to just 3 units.
