The Middle East’s first supposed super-carmaker, W Motors, has launched the Lykan HyperSport at the Qatar Motor Show.
It is as exclusive as it gets, with only 7 units reportedly being built for customers. And the price of exclusivity? Just US$ 3.4 million, or about Dhs 12.5 million, and they throw in a special-edition Cyrus Klepcys watch worth more than $200,000 for free. For that price tag, you also get diamond-coated LED headlights and gold-stitched leather seats.
The mid-engine supercar is powered by a turbocharged flat-6, capable of producing 750 hp and 1000 Nm of torque, enough to propel the car from 0-100 kph in 2.8 seconds. Continue flooring the accelerator pedal and you can go up to 395 kph.
W Motors was founded in Lebanon, but is now based in the UAE. Expect at least one or two Lykans to show up on the streets of Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
