No idea. Looks more like something for a commuter bike. Odd design.

You mean rare, as in they didn't sell many of them, because they weren't very good?

Sorry, but we're going to have to tease you about this bike, it's low-end in every way. If EGP 850 is around $50 US, it's not a bad deal.

Edit: checking the exchange rate, that looks more like $119 USD, which would be too much for it in just about any bicycle market I can think of. If decent bikes are very hard to come by in your area, you might consider buying it if it is your size.

i've searched a lot
and find a mid 80's Bottecchia Carnielli
not in a decent shape and the owner asking 1300 EGP around 180 USD
so i'm guessing buying that low end JDM :v road bike
would be just ok
i'm not a professional
but i'll ride long distances with the bike i'll purchase

I'd guess very few of us here are professionals. Long distance can mean different things to different people, but by just about any definition you'll be much happier and more likely to keep riding long distances if the bike is better.
