Hmmm . . . sounds a lot like the Yugo with more than a hint of sharia accessories thrown in.
Abdullah Al-Othman, President of King Saud University in Saudi Arabia, says the university has signed a deal with a South Korean (oops, I originally made a Freudian typo and typed, “South KORAN”) firm to produce a Saudi passenger car, which the Kingdom will then export to Gulf nations and North Africa. Waid Al-Riyadh Technology Firm, a university-affiliated company will own 10 percent of the company.

Al-Laymoon . . . The Car Brought to You by the Country That Brought American 9/11
Maybe they should call the car, “Al-Laymoon” (spelled many other ways). After all, Arabs do claim they “invented” the lemon. Finally, there may be some truth to it.
So, let me guess what, um “features” will be on this Sunni extremist vehicle a/k/a Corvette Camel:
* the ignition doesn’t start when it detects a vagina is in the driver’s seat (women are forbidden from driving in Saudi Arabia)–the TSA scanners could come in handy here;
* even a hint of bacon or alcohol on a passenger causes the vehicle to explode;
* car won’t start when “Evil Zionists” are present, but comes equipped with a special matching Eddie Bauer edition sword which which to behead them;
* has special inflatable black airbags that can double as niqab/abayas or wife-strangling devices if modesty or honor-killing are necessary for your property, er . . . “wives #1-4” during the ride;
* has special ejectable execution chair for gay passengers, Yasser Arafat look-alikes, and all those wearing pink keffiyehs.
Saudi Arabia plans to start up its first car manufacturing company with a capital of $500 million and expects a prototype within two years, state media reported on Sunday.
Riyadh-based King Saud University’s President Abdullah al-Othman signed on Sunday a memorandum of understanding with a South Korean car manufacturing firm to set up the new company.
“(The company) will have a capital of about $500 million,” Othman said, quoted by the state news agency SPA.
Up to 15 percent of the financing for the new venture is to be provided by the university’s investment arm, Wadi al-Riyadh Technology, while 30 percent will be covered by the Korean firm. The rest will be offered to investors, the agency said.
A prototype of an economic car suitable for local use will be ready within the next two years, Othman said.
G-d, let’s hope the Saudis aren’t the ones who develop the first successful, cheap car not to run on gasoline or electricity.
But since the Muslim world’s “development” of technology is limited to IEDs and other high-tech forms of murder, I’m not too worried that they might actually create something useful for a change, instead of blowing someone up.
