Is this the latest design of Porsche 919 hypercar?

Porsche 918 Spyder has recently completed the production process. It seems after that, the Porsche will not stop to make hypercar. At least it will happen the next few years.

As the car will slide in the future, it is impossible  the company will provide the leaked of car's forms at this time. Well, for that, a Brazilian designer named Guilherme Kataoka have the initiative to make a road-legal hypercar study design based on the Porsche's legendary racer, ie 919 Hybrid LMP1.

At the front, the headlights looks quite similar to a 919 racing car is curved to follow the contours of the wheel arch, and a set with aerodynamically-efficient wheels. As with the 918, this car has a lower enough cabin with the position of steering wheel in the middle, similar to the McLaren F1.

Meanwhile, on the back of arguably the most attractive elements. Because there is a large rear wing and a seamless and integrated into the wheel arch. Rear lights also follow the shape of the wings on the right and left. If observed, this looks like the 2015 Honda Civic Type R Concept. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARSCOOPS]

This unique custom bikes named 'Mr. Wolf' overhauled by Montreal-based workshop, Clockwork Motorcycles. The change was initiated when a motorcycle enthusiast got a 1981 Honda CB900 to be built in accordance with his wishes. After a few months he took it to the workshop in Montreal.

The bike builder, Samuel Guertin of Clockwork Motorcycles told Bikeexif, "The owner asked for something great, I can afford to do. Indeed, the outcome was different elongated rear chassis, and the most bizarre 10-speed gearbox".

The key is by combine a European specification of CB900F engine and final drive unit of the GL1100. Both are connected with a pair crosshaft, thus turning it into a secondary two-speed transmission. Next, Samuel changed the front suspension, with a decrease of about 100 mm and repaired the default air shock absorber.

Then the tank was replaced with the Suzuki GS owned. The electrical system was also changed by using the Motogadget M-unit product assisted Lithium-ion battery. Subsequent changes including its speedometer, hand grips, levers and turn signal at the end of the handlebar. While the subframe is extended, and made a new seat holder. The leather upholstery left to Ginger McCabe, an artisan of New Church Moto.

Back to the engine, it has been bore up to 985 cc with Wiseco kit. Its carburetor uses the Keihin CR31, while the intake is made from aluminum materials of Prism Motorcycles, and in-tune to be precise. And the 4-in-1 exhaust made from stainless steel.

The bikes rims are still using the default and only painted with black color, as well as the brake device but using stainless steel hoses and hollowed discs. Then the rims wrapped with two Pirelli MT66 tires that seemed quite harmonious. With a figure all in black, except for the fuel tank and rear fender are left plain, as well as carburetors and exhaust, it looks so unique. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CLOCKWORK MOTORCYCLES | BIKEEXIF]

First Qatari supercar with a bizarre design

A supercar is touted as the first supercar made in Qatar named 'Elibreia' is seen displayed in the Falit Qatar Motor Show 2016. Shown with an eccentric design, rather than invite admiration, this car actually makes the exhibition visitors frowned.

The design direction of the Qatar's supercar is seen to be inconsistent because the strict tapered lines that defines the futuristic impression, somehow it combined with curved lines that make the car look strange. Moreover, if we seen the design of the rear side of the car.
But luckily, the Qatar's supercar uses the powerful engine, ie a GM's V6 engine which is able to spewed the power up to 535 hp apparently sent through an unknown gearbox to all four wheels. The carbon fiber materials given that the concept only weighs 1,000 kg (2,200 pounds), it does have the potential to be as quick as some entry-level supercars like the McLaren 570S. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARSCOOPS | JALOPNIK]
