Elibriea wants to sell the first supercar made in Qatar
Designer Abdul Wahab Ziaullah came up with the Elibriea five years ago when he was a student at Texas A&M at Qatar, according to The Doha News. Now, the supercar concept is complete, but the country's government still needs to give the vehicle permission to run on public roads.
The Elibriea's design would certainly be a conversation-starter for owners. The shape reminds us of the Lamborghini Veneno but with even more jagged pieces sticking out of the body. You could never drive this thing with any hope of blending in.
Elibriea's website calls the production version the Equvallas and claims that pre-orders begin in March. The supercar has a carbon fiber body and monocoque, and a mid-mounted engine with 800 horsepower drives the rear wheels through a six-speed sequential gearbox. There are no pricing details, but so much carbon fiber simply can't be cheap. According to The Doha News, the current concept uses a General Motors-sourced powerplant with 525 hp.
Like any supercar from a completely unknown maker, we're skeptical about Elibriea actually producing a vehicle. Until a private owner has one, we have to consider this project vaporware. At least the renderings are interesting to look at, though.
