    Moroccan Designer's Fulgura exhibited in Geneva Motor Show
    Morocco, Business, 3/9/2002

    "Fulgura," a car entirely designed by Moroccan Abdesslam Laraki, is exhibited at the 72nd Geneva Motor Show this March 7-17.

    The car, which attracted the attention of specialized journalists and car industrialists and constructors in the fair, is Moroccan made, except for its Lamborghini engine and chassis.

    "They thought it was Italian, since Italian designers are known for the beauty of their creations, but were all surprised when they learnt it was Moroccan" the young Moroccan designer told MAP.

    After his baccalaureate, Abdesslam came to Switzerland for design studies. He graduated from the "Art Center" in Vevey, and went to Paris to pursue his studies.

    When he went back to Morocco in 1997, he set up a yacht and luxury boat design business, "Laraki Design," in Casablanca, where his car, Fulgura (lightening in Roman), came into being.

    Laraki says he will exhibit an improved version of Fulgura in the 2003 edition of the fair, with a chassis entirely conceived in Morocco according to the state of the art technology. Chassis and coachwork will be made up of carbon fibers, he disclosed. Laraki is preparing for the Geneva 2003 another car prototype, less sophisticated than Fulgura, but still a luxury car. He declined to disclose any further details. "It will be a surprise for Geneva 2003" he says with a smile.

        Politics and brutality aside, the Shah of Iran had Maserati build road cars after they ceased making and selling racing cars in the late fifties. He also owned a really sharp Dual Ghia in the early 60's. Was he a bad actor before the 70's?

          Number 1, this guy got almost his entire professional education from Europe. Nothing wrong with that, per se; just a reminder.

          Number 2, it would have helped it there were some picture of this car anywhere on the web. If you have any, please post it. I am curious.

            thanks soldier,

            for pretine,

            ITs nothing wrong to get knowledge from anywhere, transfer of knowledge has been from east to west before, all the advancements in science and tech now from west are based on knowledge mostly based on Muslim research before 14th 15 th century.

            to me getting knowledge from anywhere you can find it. but Laraki didnt chose to live in the west and be a part of them. he created his own identity.

            Thats what is needed.

            for your info here is link to find out more about muslim scientists

              It is good to see that Abdesslam Laraki continues in the Italian stream of consciousness instead of other trends. Are there any other car designers from the Muslim street?
