The first Arabian pre-production hypersport car has been revealed by W Motors at the Dubai International Motor Show.
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.
