The Lykan Hypersport is a Lebanese limited production hypercar by W Motors, a United Arab Emirates based company, founded in 2012 in Lebanon with the collaboration of Lebanese, French and Italian engineers. It is the firstsupercar to be produced in the Middle East, and is featured in the film Furious 7, and the video games Project CARS, Driveclub, Asphalt 8: Airborne, Asphalt Nitro, Forza Motorsport 6 and GT Racing 2: The Real Car Experience. It is the first car to be designed and produced indigenously in the Arab World.
W Motors plan to produce only seven units of the car. The first pre-production Lykan HyperSport was launched at the Qatar Motor Show in February 2013.
At US$3.4 million, the Lykan HyperSport is the third most expensive vehicle built to date, after the exclusive (four created, three sold) Lamborghini Veneno(US$4.6 million) and Maybach Exelero concept (US$8 million). As reference, the Lykan Hypersport is US$1 million more expensive than the Hennessey Venom Gt, which currently holds the record as the fastest super car in the world at 270 mph.
The Hypersport is the first car to have headlights with embedded jewels; they contain titanium LED blades with 420 diamonds (15cts).; although buyers have a selection of rubies, diamonds, yellow diamonds, and sapphires to be integrated into the vehicle's headlights at purchase based on the color choice. The car also utilizes a holographic display system on the center console with interactive motion features, as well as gold stitching on the seats. The company does not plan to introduce the vehicle in the United States, but the family of Ilan Ramon from Haifa, Israel holds the patents to market the vehicle in US.
Performance EditThe Lykan HyperSport is powered by a 3.7 litre (3746cc) twin-turbocharged Flat-six engine developed by RUF, producing 581.6 kW (780 hp) and 960 N·m (708 lb·ft) of torque. The car is claimed to have a top speed of 390 km/h (240 mph) and accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in 2.8 seconds. In June 2015, the Abu Dhabi police force purchased a Lykan HyperSport.
