Curious Proreka Show Car 好奇Proreka展示车 ...



Kuala Lumpur Motor Show
Dec 03 - 12, 2010

The concept car that really caught my attention in the KL Moto Show
was a small three-wheeled creation 
from a Japanese industrial design company known as Phiaro Corporation ...



But what does the concept car from the Japanese designer Phiaro put in display at the 
Proreka show car booth ...
as Proreka is a Malaysian Tier-1 vendor and manufacturer of 
OEM and ODM automotive parts and components.



This concept car called the P67b Eternity
is however designed by a Dutch engineer Peter Van Den Brink;
is presented with a sleek three-wheel; and along with its
tandem seating arrangement does looks like some kind of
armored land-based fighter jet with wheels (if I may put it that way) ...

and it is designed to lean into corners like a motorcycle.
The Eternity has topped out at 180 km/h (112 mph) ...



The front cabin can tilt up to 45 degrees or more (I think) while the rear-driving wheels, 
which is powered by a 660cc turbocharged 4-cylinder engine lifted 
from a Daihatsu Mira, remains planted to the road to dispense of the engine’s 65hp.
(I hope this information is correct, apologies if some mistakes here) ...



According to a Phiaro representative, 
they are looking into building the P67b locally with the 
pricetag of a Perodua Myvi, 
that is if they could get financial backing and have the P67b crash tested in the first place.

Sure like to see one of these on the streets of Kuala Lumpur or
the local highways ...
