    ???

    Is No. 1 correct?
    1) This car is bionic of an insect. = 2) This car was modeled on an insect.
    If no, how can we use bionic?

    No, it's not right.
    How can we use it? We find out what it means from a dictionary (or preferably 2 or 3), for example the one below, then we use it consistently with the definition.
    For example, "My father had a bionic hand fitted after he lost his own in a tractor accident."


    bi·on·ic/bīˈänik/


    Adjective:1. Having artificial body parts, esp. electromechanical ones.
    2. Having ordinary human powers increased by or as if by the aid of such devices (real or fictional).

    Please give a more helpful title to your next thread. '???' tells us nothing.
