Obviously not :)
I have to admit I felt this coaster might of changed abit as it was going to open for 2014, but this is just increadible, I wonder how many more changes will happen, You never know this could be the world's first 10 inversion launch coaster! - Only two more inversions needed for that record to be there's.
Plus it is made by Mack Rides, which a few years ago, I never would of thought they could of created a beast of a coaster like this.

True, I was actually thinking about the inversion record with how close this is!

The train design has been revealed by Liseberg on the Project Helix website.

I think these trains look brilliant and will suit the coaster.

They do look good. Only lap-bars on this ride will be amazing!

I personally don't think Mack will make a new rollercoaster with Over The Shoulder Restraints because these lapbars, do the same thing, and actually can lower the height restrictions even with the inversions.

That does look nice. I like how there's hardly anything on the front and what there is, you're sat above. Should make for a lovely view from front row.
