The company announced its supercar concept at the Qatar Motor Show 2016 continuously, and as with the above two models from the W Motors, Qatari supercar design is definitely put together raising eyebrows contours and positive perspective than a stealth bomber.
The wild and undoubtedly unpleasant-looking “Elibriea” supercar debuted this week at global auto shows. The car was designed by a student at the University of Texas at Qatar Doha Ali Bin Ali, but paid by the Group. Interestingly, according to GT Arabs, the designer-turned-students have been working on a supercar design.
For this, however, below the gray, stone-like its exterior beats a 525-horsepower V6 engine from General Motors. I’m trying to rack my brain to think that it can be the engine, but I’m coming up short. Perhaps the designers were able to squeeze more out of the horse 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6 from the Cadillac ATS-V.
Although it does not quite have the horsepower supercar, which is said to be heavy just 1,000 kg (2,204 pounds), so it should be pretty quick. I guess speculation about its quickness is a little too early because, really, it’s not like it’s more of a clay model on wheels and plastic windshield.
Either way, it is nice to know that someone outside Europe are trying to push the boundaries of supercar design – whether they’re cribbing designs of Maya temple or not. Really, though, I think the real title of this story is that there is a University of Texas campus in Qatar.
