A weird looking Austrian-made sports car named Kiska APG-1

~Weird ONES~ Indeed, many new car models are said to be released at the end of this year, and some of them were discussed by us. In turn now, we will see what an Austrian little-known brand named Kiska does, when it previewed an exciting new sports car dubbed the Kiska APG-1 sometime ago. At its peak, a number of new images have been seen released on this December 2022 along with reports that the car will be in production soon.

For your info, the mentioned brand above owned by a multidisciplinary design studio founded by an Austrian entrepreneur named  Gerald Kiska back in 1991, and over time the company grew then known through out the world, now it has a quite wide range clients such; Adidas, Audi, Bosch, Husqvarna, KTM and dozens of other companies, even now Kiska feels that it has the ability to produce its own sports car, and is starting to pave the way in that direction.
The Kiska APG-1 was originally conceived as a study concept for demonstrate the automaker's ability to "conceptualize, design, and build aspirational and emotional brands rooted in real desires". (Picture from: Kolesa.ru)
As quoted of Carscoops, the Kiska APG-1 was originally conceived as a study concept for demonstrate Kiska's ability to "conceptualize, design, and build aspirational and emotional brands rooted in real desires". However, eventually the brand now wants to assemble a coachbuilding network that will make the APG-1 into a reality.

Uniquely, the Kiska APG-1 is built based on the recently introduced KTM X-Bow GT-XR. Thus, it is not surprising if the car will be supported by a carbon fiber monocoque, and also powered by an Audi 2.5-liter turbocharged five-cylinder engine. While used in the KTM X-Bow GT-XR, the engine capable bursts power of 500 hp at 6,350 rpm and 428 lb-ft (581 Nm) of torque at 5,500 rpm, so likely the APG-1 has similar horsepower and torque figures.
The Kiska APG-1 is featured with a large front grille with black color, a pair of small pop-up headlights, and black strakes on the front of the hood. (Picture from: Kiska)
Other parts might be taken from KTM include a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission system, rear-wheel drive layout and limited-slip differential, strong braking system, and the same push-rod suspension system.

Furthermore, as explained by the Kiska's Lead Tranportation Designer, Alan Derosier, that the entire body of Kiska's car creation is made of lightweight carbon fiber, while in creating this mid-engined sports car clearly takes design inspiration from the legendary Lancia Stratos, which is immediately identifiable by the front wheel arches and the protruding canopy roof.
The Lancia Stratos-inspired shapes found on the Kiska APG-1 are instantly recognizable by the prominent front wheel arches and roof canopy. (Picture from: Kiska)
Then the Kiska APG-1 sports car is also equipped with a large front grille with black color, a pair of small pop-up headlights, and black strakes on the front of the hood. There is also another uniqueness could be seen on the front, precisely on the hood in the form of air vents or something like that, which in our opinion bears a resemblance to the mask worn by Darth Vader (the main antagonist character of the Hollywood box-office movies of 'Star Wars').
The Kiska APG-1 also has other striking design details including the rear spoiler which is above the rear engine cover, square taillights, dual exhaust pipes, and a large rear wing. (Picture from: Kiska)
It doesn't stop there, it turns out that there are still other striking design details including the rear spoiler which is above the rear engine cover, square taillights, dual exhaust pipes, and a large rear wing. As we're sure most people would agree, it really should be brought into real.
It's unclear how many cars will be produced or how much each unit will cost. Because as far as we can see at this point, getting to the production stage seems still far away, and the Kiska APG-1 sports car seems to be still in the model development stage (with only one prototype under construction), beside that the automaker are also opening an oppurtunity for you to involve directly in the development process or investment. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | KISKA | CARSCOOPS | PODKAPOTOU ]
