Remember the Lykan Hypersport? It’s the Arabian supercar from W Motors that makes Ferraris and Lamborghinis look like a freaking Pinto.
It’s the one that manages to squeeze 750 horsepower out of a 3.8-liter flat six for 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds. The car whose body is completely carbon fiber and has headlights encrusted with diamonds. The interior has a holographic display and you use hand gestures to control it.
It’s the car that has over 100 orders, but they’re only making 7. At $3,400,000 each.
I’m not going to get into it all here, check out the article we did when the car was first announced for the details: The Lykan HyperSport – a Lesson in Automotive Lust.
I’m only writing this because W Motors just released some more images of the gorgeous car with its backwards-opening suicide doors and some new colors.
They’ll be showing the first production Lykan at the 2013 Dubai Motor Show in November. I’m really interested to see where the company goes from here. I imagine they’re launching big with this car, and after this they’ll be working some more affordable and slightly less exclusive supercars. Either way, we’ll be hearing more from them soon.
Oh, and a quick suggestion to W Motors – your company name (the make) should be “Lykan” and your car (the model) should be “Hypersport”.
I’ll shut up now, just take a look:
