Qatari auto firm unveils first supercar

1 February 2016

A Qatari businessman has unveiled Qatar’s first home grown supercar, the Elibriea, at the country's annual motor show.

The Elibriea Automotive company announced it was taking advanced orders for its sharp-angled light-weight coupe, which it said would weigh around 2,200lbs due to a carbon fibre body and produce 535 horsepower through a V6 engine.

According to the company’s website the model will be available by December 2016.

The company described itself as having been founded by Abdul Wahab Ziaullah, who said he had developed the vehicle while working as an undergraduate at the University of Texas A&M Qatar campus.

He said the supercar would use carbon fibre technology to produce not just the body panels but also the core components of the drive train.

This would give the car more agility and net thrust for its mass, he claimed.

The company also said on its web site that it was currently working on a lightweight, eco-friendly sports coupe called Equvallas, though no pictures were available of this model.
