Qatar's first homegrown supercar feels the heat for its distinctive design

Most of these high-end sports cars are imported from Europe. But that could change this year with the launch of the Elibriea -- a new concept designed and built almost entirely in Qatar.

The gold prototype, designed to resemble a stealth fighter jet, was unveiled at the 16th annual Qatar Motor Show in Doha. It sports a V8, 525-horsepower engine.

Can't be seen on the police radar guns ?

Anyway, should I find a suitcase with cash I am still more of a Porsche 911 or maybe Audi R8 sort of person.

I think sometimes the phrase "Money can't buy class" is very apt. In this case I would say so too. But hey, interesting design nonetheless :dunno2:

I'm just more interested to know which runway that is?

What an ugly POS.

Looks like the wheel wells are an after thought, or that it's a plastic body plonked over the top of a saloon car. The wheels themselves look tiny and out of scale. Again, as if underneath was a bog standard Ford Mondeo, with a plastic body glued to it.
