Ajlani Motors, a new hypercar manufacturer from the UAE founded Bashar Ajlani, launched its first, superhot Drakuma model at the Dubai International Motor Show. While the car was certainly the star, the event was also enriched by a gorgeous 3D printed sculpture of a dragon. This work of art, which you can see in the video above, also designed by Ajlani Motors founder and CEO, was 3D printed by local studio Proto21.

And here are some concept shots of the Drakuma supercar:

The 3D printed dragon, which emerges from a dragon egg, represents the Ajlani Motors logo as well as the name and inspiration for the Drakuma supercar.

According to reports, the model presented in Dubai is only a full-size mock-up but in the future, according to statements by representatives of the young company, the production car will be equipped with a 1200-horsepower engine. It is expected to be a V8 Biturbo engine located within the wheelbase, behind the cockpit. If the dragon sculpture is any indication, 3D printing is going to play a big part in making the Drakuma hypercar reality.
