W Motors Lykan HyperSport 2014 launched at Dubai Motor Show
Truly standing out from the other launches in Dubai this year is the 2014 Lykan HyperSport, which remains the jewel of the Middle-East as it now dubbed the “First Arabian Hypercar”.
And the hypercar tag is no fancy term. The Lykan HyperSport comes with a mid-rear mounted flat-6 engine, supplemented by twin turbos to produce 770 hp and 1000 Nm of torque. It will be coupled with a 6-speed sequential manual or 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Thanks to all that, the Lykan HyperSport will hit 100 kph from a dead standstill in less than 2.8 seconds and maxes out at 395 kph.
Other features include a one-off holographic display with interactive motion and tactile interaction, an advanced ‘ID4Motion’ dashboard and a uniquely developed reverse mechanical doors system. The car also gets diamond and sapphire-encrusted LED lights.
W Motors revealed that the final testing will be held in UAE, which will feature private track days with professional race drivers along with several other regional events.
