Noted as the first Middle Eastern manufacturer of high-performance luxury sports cars, W Motors was founded in Lebanon in 2012. Based in Dubai, W Motors is involved in automotive design, research & development, engineering, and manufacturing.
In 2013 Universal Studios ordered twelve of W Motors’ prototypes of the Lykan HyperSport to be used as stunt cars in Furious 7. The Lykan HyperSport became the most expensive car to be featured in the Fast and Furious movies. The supercar was also purchased by the Abu Dhabi police in 2015.
With the ability to go from 0 to 100 in 2.8 seconds (thankfully, they aren’t used by police in the U.S.), the Lykan features a holographic display with interactive motion and tactile interaction. The headlights are encrusted with diamonds and the taillights with sapphires.
