If you know, We hope You willing to share with us.🙏
This Rolls-Royce 103EX concept has inspired the only-one Rolls-Royce Uriel creation made only for Justin Bieber. (Picture from: Carbuzz)
In short, this car modification project began when Justin Bieber was struck by the beauty and sophistication of the Rolls-Royce 103EX concept car which was first launched in 2016. Well, after watching it through the media, directly making him interested in owning it, but unfortunately his wishes could not be realized in the time, because the sophisticated car belonging to the British super luxury car manufacturer is not for sale due to it was still in the development stage, aka only a concept car.

Then those engine power is transferred via an 8-speed automatic transmission system to drive its rear wheels.

As quoted of the Motor1, all the modifying process of the Wraith into the unique futuristic-styled car is always communicated with the manufacturer in Goodwood, England. And the work starts with a 3D scan of the exterior of Rolls-Royce to find out the exact shape of each body panel. Then these 3D scans are used to create for bespoke body kits prints.
Justin Bieber was accompanied by Ryan Friedlinghaus when he saw the Rolls-Royce Uriel for the first time after it was completed at the West Coast Customs. (Picture from: KabarOto)
Then the work was continued by the bodyworks experts to create the perfect shape for the car, before it was finish by painting it in gloss silver and matte gray colour to support the car's beauty. The most prominent thing from this modification process is the shape of the wheel covers that makes the car look like it's floating. The front and rear bumpers along the side body and fenders have been completely hand-engraved making them very exclusive.

Significant changes are also seen in the audio system used, considering that the owner of this super luxury car is the world's pop star. So what is then installed for his car is of course the best and the most sophisticated ones and is supported by a unique lighting system that includes hidden illuminations along the underside edges.

It seems that today, the Ferrari became some kind of a guarantee for certainity of the best exotic premium four-wheeled vehicle which is offering fierce performance as well. So it is not surprising that the prancing horse sports car enthusiasts are also special people who certainly have abundant treasures whose willing to spend much their money to have it.

It's like a masterpiece created from a neat blend of millions of premium components with the touch of the great talents of designers and engineers at its Maranello-based factory. Well, it also indicates that not just anyone capable to create a beautiful car design concept worthy of wearing the Ferrari's prancing horse emblem on the hood.

The following neat design concept of a prancing horse logoed sports car was the personal work of a Spanish automotive designer named Daniel Soriano. This imaginary sports car figure created by him is named the Ferrari Aliante Barchetta, which is intended to pay homage to the past generations of sports cars.
Right left side of the Ferrari Aliante Barchetta concept car designed by Daniel Soriano. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/36GZRLc)
Currently, Daniel Soriano working as as Concept Surface Designer at the Swedish's car brand, Volvo. The designer said that the car design background just because he thinks most modern cars that exist today are like soulless machines with more resemblance to electrodomestics than real cars.

He further said that all of this depends on performance figures, thus a great car cannot be measured or calculated. So with this car is the embodiment of his desire to make something pure, light and simple. The concept is based on the Ferrari Aliante project worked by Daniel Soriano along with Arun Kumar and Magnus Grettve for the 2011 IED and presented at the Ferrari World Design Contest.
Here's instrument cluster view of the Ferrari Aliante Barchetta concept car designed by Daniel Soriano. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/36GZRLc)
After seven years, he decided to update the design as a personal challenge to evaluate his growth as a designer with many professional experience in Lamborghini, Volvo, Polestar and others. Eventually he decided to redesign and remodel the car from scratch, dubbing it the Ferrari Aliante Barchetta.

Then the designers proposed that the concept is powered by a compact, high revving naturally aspirated inline V12 engine coupled with independent throttle bodies, manual gearbox and has no electronic driving aids.

If this concept car be realized into a real car, then you can imagine when it runs on the streets, it will give a typical premium roadster driving sensation that pampers the two occupants with gentle breeze of winds combined with fierce pounding of its V12 engine. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARBODYDESIGN ]

Elation Freedom, 2022(?)

The development of electric-powered super vehicles is increasingly attracting the interest of players in the automotive industry, both old players and new players. This is also done by an American automotive startup company named Elation Hypercars.
The Elation Hypercars has revealed the Freedom, its first production hypercar set to launch in a few years’ time with gasoline and electric powertrains to choose from. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/3jdDrpO)
The company was founded in 2014 by three founders, namely Carlos Satulovsky, Mauro Saravia, and Pablo Barragan with a simple vision. They would build a hypercar which could capture the singular feeling of purist driving: elation.
The Elation Freedom electric-powered hypercar uses a carbon fiber monocoque chassis, no wonder its weighs around 3,637 lbs or around 1,650 kilograms. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3roXhBv)
Six years later, the dream has become a reality. Well, recently there's a hyper electric-powered vehicle was successfully created by this American startup company and named Elation Freedom. And it's also said that the California-based startup will be the first American local company to produce a luxury electric-powered hypercar for the United States market.
The Elation Freedom hypercar presents a fighter jet-inspired cockpit inspired inside its cabin. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3roXhBv)
This extraordinary electric-powered vehicle was made by Carlos Satulovsky and Mauro Saravia, assisted by the company's tecnical division whose have many experienced experts of the Formula One, and other European racings, as a result this car is claimed to have various advantages.
The Elation Freedom hypercar has gullwing doors and also a fairly large-sized wing on the back. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3roXhBv)
By using a carbon fiber monocoque chassis, it's no wonder the Freedom weighs around 3,637 lbs or around 1,650 kilograms. However, without the motor or battery pack, the weight drops to 2,850 lbs. 

When viewed its exterior, as quoted of Carscoops, this electric-powered hypercar has quite striking looks because it has gullwing doors and also a fairly large-sized wing on the back.
The standard variant of the Elation Freedom electric-powered hypercar will use three electric motors producing up to 1,414 hp of power. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3roXhBv)
If You entering the cabin, the hypercar presents a fighter jet-inspired cockpit inspired. It is equipped with the digital instrument cluster, plus with a minimalist-looking middle section that's entirely made of carbon fiber. In addition, the potential customers are given the chance to choose materials to cover the car's cabin, ranging from premium genuine leather, precious metals, to gemstones.
The standard variant of the Elation Freedom electric-powered hypercar costs around the US. $2 million or Rp. 28 billion. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3roXhBv)
The hypercar base model will have three electric motors producing up to 1,414 hp of power. Not only that, the California-based company also plans to offer an additional electric motor so that this car has a maximum power of 1,903 hp. With its maximum power, the car able to accelerate from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in just 1.8 seconds, and run up to its top speed of 418 kilometers per hour. Wow!

Then to support its performance, this hypercar is also equipped with two options T-shaped lithium-ion battery packs, each with a capacity of 100 kWh and 120 kWh. So the electric-powered hypercar is claimed to be able to run as far as 483 km to 644 km according to the battery pack it uses.
Rear view of the Elation Freedom hypercar. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3roXhBv)
One more thing, if you are not happy enough with the electric drivetrain, then the Elation Freedom will offer You another variant called Elation Freedom Iconic Collection that uses an Audi-sourced 5.2 litre V10 engine which able to spew power up to 750 hp and 664 Nm of torque. 

The engine power will be channeled to the four wheels through the 7-speed dual-clutch S-tronic gearbox. Unfortunately, the car's performance becomes little bit slow, with 0-60 mph acceleration time of 2.2 seconds and a top speed of only 221 mph. But as far as we know, that performance figures still includes the hypercar capabilities. This indicates that the Freedom Iconic variant still deserves to be said as a hypercar.
Regarding the price, the American startup company mentions that the Freedom standard variant costs around the US. $2 million or Rp. 28 billion, while the Freedom Iconic variant is priced at $ 2.3 million or Rp.32 billion. But there’s no mention of when to expect deliver. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ELATION HYPERCARS | CARSCOOPS | MOTORTREND | TOPSPEED ]

The '90s Gandini-designed Maserati Chubasco car prototype

Once again, We're back to one of the famous Italian automotive manufacturers, Maserati, which is known to have a line of great cars that had ever been colored the automotive world from the past to this day. As we all know, recently the Modena-based auto manufacturer has shocked the world's automotive by launching its newest supercar called the Maserati MC20.
The Maserati Chubasco Prototipo was built to be the car of every enthusiast’s dreams and was shaped by a pure passion for fast cars using the most sophisticated technologies the early Nineties had to offer. (Picture from http://bit.ly/36dlyCf)
Besides launching the latest supercar which is said to have promising performance so that it said able to thrill the hearts of its competitors neither on the roads and circuits. However in its business journey, the Italian automotive company has also produced many great cars that are adapted to the times when it was launched.

As in the 1950s when Maserati triumphed on the 24-Hours of Le Mans endurance racing circuit through a line of legendary racing cars based on the Maserati 450S to the Maserati 450S Costin-Zagato Coupe. Likewise, what happened four decades later, namely in the 1990s, the Modena-based company also launched several concept cars and one of them is the Maserati Chubasco which in our opinion is very thick with the design and technology of the nineties so that it deserves to be one of the iconic cars of the era.
The Maserati Chubasco designed by Marcello Gandini and featured three front intakes to channel air under the door and out through the rear bodywork. (Picture from http://bit.ly/36dlyCf)
As is well known, since 1975, Maserati has been acquired by Alejandro de Tomaso, and while in the '90s, the company (supported by large government investments) began to move away from its traditional production line of the exclusive high-performance cars. Initially, the Italian company relied on its future on the 1980s Bitubo models to compete with BMW, Mercedes-Benz and other premium car brands. The model was also projected as the firm's spearheading to re-enter the lucrative North American auto-market at the time.
The Maserati Chubasco Prototipo is very thick with the design and technology of the nineties so that it deserves to be one of the iconic cars of the era. (Picture from http://bit.ly/3sW4Elo)
Although at first it seemed to be going well, where sales figures for the Bitubo model were quite good, entering the mid to late 1980s the situation reversed and became even worse for lacking a flagship befitted the marque's heritage. That's why, in the early 1990s, the Italian company took steps to create a new supercar model that lived up to the marque's legacy. So then was born the Maserati Chubasco, the car's name is taken from the name of the fierce storm that occurred in Central and South America.
Maserati Chubasco Prototipo is built on a chassis structure consisting of an aluminum honeycomb central backbone with a ribbed light alloy subframe to carry the suspension and engine. (Picture from http://bit.ly/3iMescY)
Then a prototype was introduced by Maserati at a press conference in December 1990. It unveiled alongside the new Biturbo-based Shamal and two-litre Racing, the Chubasco was a completely new mid-engined two-seat sports coupe and as many as 450 units planned to be produced by those Italian company. And theoretically, the Chubasco could potentially be pitched a half-price rival to the Lamborghini Diablo and Ferrari Testarossa.

The Maserati Chubasco is built on a chassis structure consisting of an aluminum honeycomb central backbone with a ribbed light alloy subframe to carry the suspension and engine. Meanwhile, Marcello Gandini was responsible to its handsome designed bodywork and is mounted to the chassis with dampers that absorb vibrations and protect the cockpit from noise.
The Maserati Chubasco Prototipo is a mid-engined sports coupe with an uprated version of the 3.2 liter 32-valve 90° V8 Shamal's engine coupled with the six-speed manual transmission system. (Picture from http://bit.ly/3sW2LVQ)
The bodywork design pays close attention to airflow by creating three front intakes to channel air under the door and out through the rear bodywork. In addition to cooling the engine, it is also intended to enhance the ground-effect produced by a flat underside and rear venturi.

Besides it having an electric hard top that slides backwards over the engine, the Maserati Chubasco is also equipped with a pair of scissor doors like those of Lamborghini cars as its passenger-driver access to enter-exit the cabin. To add a finishing touch, body-coloured aero discs covered the split-rim five spoke wheels.
The Chubasco uses an uprated version of the 3.2 liter 32-valve 90° V8 Shamal's engine later also equipped with a dry-sumped, twin turbocharged and with dual overhead camshafts, so the engine is capable of delivering up to 430 bhp at 6,500 rpm (but no other technical details were released). Those engine power is then channeled to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission system with double plate clutch and limited slip differential.

Despite being very well received, the Chubasco program was later canceled by Fiat (which in January 1990 had acquired around 50% of Maserati shares) because it was considered too expensive to produce. Although only one unit was ever made as a prototype, the Chubasco chassis layout is still used as the basis for the Barchetta one-make racing car launched in 1992 and later became De Tomaso Guara in 1993. Today the Maserati Chubasco Prototipo sat on display at the Panini Museo near Modena, Italy.

Apart from everything and it has absolutely nothing to do with one another. It's just our eyes wild imagination that the Maserati Chubasco concept car looks like has a similarity or design connection with a Shotaro Kaneda motorcycle red-cherry futuristic bike adopted from the 1988 classic Japanese sci-fi anime film titled 'Akira'.

Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo SV for Gran Turismo 7

As in the Gran Turismo 6 virtual racing game previously it is known that many world manufacturers have released the VGT (Vision Gran Turismo) concept. It seems that Polyphony Digital, the game developer wants to try again when Gran Turismo 7 is available to play on the PlayStation 5 (PS5) console.
The latest Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo SV concept car can be driven virtually in the Gran Turismo 7 racing game on the Sony Play Station 5 (PS5). (Picture from: https://bit.ly/38wPr27)
Reportedly, the latest sequel to the virtual racing video game Gran Turismo 7 will be released this year (2021). And ahead of its launch, the world-renowned automotive manufacturers began making concept cars that could later be driven virtually in the aforementioned racing game.

And the company that was the first to officially release its concept for the Gran Turismo 7 was Jaguar through its newest concept car called Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo SV. For the latest version, Jaguar takes a design approach towards an endurance prototype racing car. Previously, Jaguar had also released a similar concept in 2019, called the Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo Coupe.
The latest Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo SV concept car (in the middle) posed with the old Jaguar racing car models such (from left to right) Jaguar C-Type, XJR-9, XJR-14 and D-Type. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/38wPr27)
In theory, because this car is a virtually concept, the Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo SV can be described briefly as an electric-powered racing car that relies on four electric motors, with a total power output of 1,877 hp and 3,360 Nm of torque. With such a large number of Power and torque, then the British company claims its latest car has the ability to accelerate from rest to 100 kph in 1.65 seconds. While the top speed it will touch is 410 kph.
The latest Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo SV concept car appeared in a very streamlined design applied to the car, through a long bonnet line coupled with a low roofline, which is almost in line with the height of the front fenders. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/3oyZuJv)
Of the visual appearance, you will see a very streamlined design applied to the car, through a long bonnet line coupled with a low roofline, which is almost in line with the height of the front fenders. Then the front fascia shows a closed grille to house the Jaguar emblem, because it has an electric drive. Then under it is attached a long and width splitter, which is cut off in the middle.
The driver of the latest Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo SV concept car is in an ergonomic position when driving the car with all the instruments positioned so that they are easily accessible to the driver's hand. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/3oyZuJv)
Meanwhile, on the sides there are almost no air holes, except for one vent which has the function of removing air pressure from behind the front fenders. The rest there is no ventilation or intake at all on the side of the Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo SV. The British premium car manufacturer also mentioned several design references applied to this concept taken from old Jaguar models such as the C-type, D-type, XJR-9, and XJR-14. Moreover, the giant rear wing also reminds us of the Jaguar racing car that once competed in the 24-Hours of Le Mans.

In dimensions when compared to the Jaguar VGT Coupe, the Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo SV is 861 mm longer. All parts of the body are utilized to generate maximum downforce, including the fully closed bottom. Not only closed, but also given special sculptures for the best air flow to the diffuser. As a result, the car's drag coefficient (Cd) is only 0.398, with 483 kg of downforce generated when the car's speed reaches 322 kph.

The interior is also made in such a way as to support aerodynamic performance, so when in the cockpit, so the driver is in an ergonomic position when driving the car with all the instruments positioned so that they are easily accessible to the driver's hand. All control devices are also designed to keep the car's weight light by using Typefibre material. These materials are used to make composite seats, which reportedly will also be tested on the Jaguar I-Type is will be used as the Formula E racing cars next season. 
"The Vision GT SV is a dramatic and visually captivating car, showcasing what is possible when the traditional boundaries that govern real-world car design are completely removed. In bringing this car to life with a full-size design study, we were able to showcase the most extreme version of the Jaguar electric racing car that is inspired by the past, but looks fearless into the future," said the Jaguar's director of design, Julia Thomson.

"All aerodynamic features have been painstakingly optimized through cutting-edge computational fluid dynamics analysis - in exactly the same way we do real-world projects like the Jaguar I-TYPE Formula E race car," said Jaguar SV senior aerodynamic engineer Michael O'Regan. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | JAGUAR | AUTOWISE | ]
