Qatar take covers off first sports car, we wished they left them on
To the detriment of my own mental state I've been staring at the images of this, the new Elibreia supercar, trying to come up with words to go with these pictures. But I really can't.
There are some details around the car that I guess could be interesting. It's been built by a Texas A&M University wing in Qatar. It's powered by a GM V6 that makes 535hp. The body is made from carbon fibre.
But frankly the body could've been made from mummified blue cheese and it would still be just as irrelevant. Look at the thing. Cardboard hues, wheel-gaps that you could fit a Cessna through, and wheels from that 20-year-old Lancer with a faux-Evo bodykit that hoons up and down your road at 2am. It reminds me of a fantasy Hot Wheels car from the 80s — wild beyond belief, but nobody would ever dream of actually creating one.
I feel bad for the designer. When I was at university my biggest achievement was waking up every morning with enough of a will to leave my room — this guy meanwhile designed an entire car. And that's a big deal.
But, just. Well look at Arab GT's YouTube below and see what you think. I'm done.
