Laraki Automobiles was founded in 1999 in Morocco. Their third concept vehicle, the Epitome, was introduced at the 2013 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. It was later developed into the Sahara hypercar, two of which were commissioned by His Majesty Mohammed VI, King of Morocco, including this example used for public demonstration purposes. The Sahara features Moroccan design influences in the pattern of the front grille and the quilted interior upholstery, and is painted in the king’s signature color.
