The Frem F1 super car will go on display next year at the 2009 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Between studying at the American University of Science and Technology and working as an architect at Phoenix Machinery, David Frem made one dream come true. He designed the Arab region's first Formula 1 type car, the Frem F1.

25 year-old David studied the project for three years, then supervised a team of engineers from Phoenix Machinery to execute his design. INDEVCO Group financed the project. Frem explains, "We had just one dream; to design a car with one identity - Lebanon."
