Here are some additional infos about the Laraki car models:

Fulgura:
Fulgura (or Fulgura Laraki) (Arabic: فولغورا) is the brand name of the first Arab African and Moroccan sports car. It was originally designed and produced in Casablanca, Morocco. It was entirely conceived and manufactured by Laraki group.

The Laraki Fulgura was the company's first attempt at a sports car. Originally unveiled as a concept at the 2002 Geneva Motor Show, the production version debuted a year later at the same show. A slightly redesigned version of the bodywork was unveiled in 2005.

The car is known by its luxurious design. Based on the frame and mechanicals of a Lamborghini Diablo, the Fulgura receives a quad-turbo Mercedes-Benz 6.0L V12 producing 680hp, attached to a 6-speed manual transmission. A new aerodynamic carbon fibre body is also added. This brings the Fulgura to an estimated price of $555,750.

Performance for the Fulgura is an estimated top speed of 217mph (350km/h) and acceleration of 0 - 60mph in 4.5 seconds.




Borac:
Borac (or Borac Laraki) (Arabic: البراق) is the brand name of a Moroccan sportscar. It was entirely conceived and manufactured by Laraki group.

It was originally unveiled as a concept at the 2005 Geneva Motor Show. The car is planned for production, although a final design has yet to be unveiled.

The design of the Borac is that of a grand tourer, with a front engine layout and even the possibility of two (albeit small) rear seats. The Borac is not based on an existing design, unlike the Fulgura.

A Mercedes-Benz 6.0L V12 powers the Borac, although it lacks the turbocharging of the first Laraki car; the Fulgura. This leads to an output of 540 hp (400 kW), producing a top speed of 193 mph (310 km/h) and acceleration from 0 - 60mph in 4.5 seconds.




Enjoy
