The exterior of this supercar looks very stylish and has a look that scary. Starting from the head lamp design with slanted design combined with blue light which surrounds free form lines on each side of the front and sides of the body, and at first glance this car looks like Alien..!

This supercar using the US Le Mans race series Courage C65 chassis, and carries R20B Renesis 3 rotor rotary engine that can generate power of 450 hp (336 kW). Amazingly the engine is specifically designed to use E100 ethanol fuel.
True to its name Furai which could be interpreted by the 'sound of the wind,' because the engine produces a sound like a strong wind blowing. To be able to drive the car, the engine power is channeled to all wheels through the X-trac 6-speed semi-automatic transmission system.
