Established in Beirut and Headquartered in Dubai since early 2013, W Motors is the first Arabian manufacturer of Hypercars.  The company launched the exterior prototype ‘The Lykan HyperSport’ last January at the International Qatar Motor Show and now, the unveiling of the first complete pre production unit of the “Lykan HyperSport 2014” finally took place.

“A year ago we have seen a dream turn into reality with the launch of W Motors, today this dream is shared with the whole world, witnessing the birth of the first Arabian Hypercar; the Lykan HyperSport is born,” said W Motors CEO Ralph R. Deebas.

Only seven units will be produced of the Lykan HyperSport 2014, each sold at $3.4 million.

The car is unquestionably exciting to look at, combining elements which are both elegant and extreme. The body is fully made from carbon fiber and the sharp edges are accented with Diamond and Saphire incrusted LED headlights.

The interior is completely customizable with a holographic display that features interactive motion and tactile interaction. A 24h/24h Global Elite concierge service provided by Quintessentially Lifestyle is dedicated to “Lykan” owners only and a unique patented design Cyrus Klepcys watch was developed exclusively for each car.

But perks aside, this hypersport car was born to perform. Power leaves the flat six twin-turbo engine through a seven-speed PDK clutch transmission reaching 770hp and 1000 NM torque. At a top speed of 395 km/h, the Lykan HyperSport 2014 can sprint from 0-100 km/h in 2.8 seconds.

The turbo Mid-Rear engine was engineered by RUF Automobile in Germany, while the lightweight Aluminum wheels have been forged by 2elle Engineering in Italy to strip out the bulk while maintaining strength for increased performance.

The seven units can be ordered in any of the ten colours available – from Arabian Pearl to Khalifa Green- and will be ready for delivery by the first quarter of 2014.

I love the comments here.....especially by Mr.Lebanese who is not an arab to begin with. Well then to customize the comment that everyeone else is making.....this is NOT a Lebanese Supercar as would be if you guys knew how to make your own engines and you guys knew how to make Carbon Fibre and had a coachbuilding industry.......its the same as what luxury brands do with watches .....get a watch made by some generic manufacturer and put their brand on it.....

But please do keep commenting on here and about this GREAT MIDDLE EASTERN supercar.......lets wait and see how many Italians and Germans (who know a little bit about cars) are going to be buying at least one. This car is sooooooooooo funny. And whats even funnier is the defence! Thank you

concerned Arab, you don't sound Arab... no, really.

Besides, W Motors is Lebanese and we Lebanese don't need the 'Arab world' to be concerned... but about themselves.

Most of us the Lebanese don't have Arab roots and the Lebanese aren't Arabs originally to begin with.

From the looks of it and the way they describe the engine and transmission. This is basically just a Porsche in different clothing. RUF engines are sourced from Porsche and PDK is Porsches transmission. I wonder how much of the car, if any, is actually manufactured in the Middle East.

And $3.8 million for a car from a company with no racing heritage and zero history. Why not just buy a RUF if you are going to source all the internals from there? How much time is this car going to spend in the repair shop with next to no dealer network and zero experience from the manufacturer?

Diamonds and sapphires in the headlights? Couldnt get an tackier.

JohnA, the car is cool.

How much it is being manufactured in the Middle East or not is not the question. The question is will this car measure up to supercars worldwide, the answer is yes based on its specs.

Honestly, your disgust and hatred to the Middle Eastern cultures is what drives you to make your comments. It's totally understandable. Quit sobbing about it; do you need a tissue?

Lastly, as if everything in the west is really made in the west. When you look at each of the elements that are given to any western production, it's either made in China, Taiwan or Japan... and no further comment so far.

I tend to agree , what is so special , not even a customize Bentley with over 100 of year of history will cost that much , just one question they think they are only selling Unique for 3.4 Million , since there are only 7 , so ha , in 2-3 years there will be ZERO , since no one will drive it since it will be in the shop all the time , or the owner will be so afraid to scratch it , the paint job will cost half a million .

this is a total joke i am sure they will be laughing to the bank ,
