Who doesn’t like fast cars? The inexpressible feeling when adrenaline fills up all your body, you can’t think about anything else and it seems like your heart stops for a moment. The unforgettable taste of power, sound and speed, there’s nothing like it.
The global supercar market offers models for any pocket and desire, but this luxury toy, manufactured by W Motors, a Dubai/Lebanon-based company, is something different: it’s the first ever supercar produced in the Middle East and there are only 7 lucky ones who can own and drive this baby.
With the price tag of $3.4million, Lykan HyperSport, is the third most expensive car in the world after the Maybach Exelero ( $8 million ) and Lamborghini Veneno ( $4.5 million ), but it wouldn’t be truly Arabic without some ornate diamonds on it, right? Indeed, buyers can customise the vehicle headlights of this new hypercar with diamonds, rubies or sapphires. Not only that, the car itself is part of very unique experience: together with Swiss made luxury watch made by Franck Muller and an elite concierge service, there is another exclusive detail: by pressing a specific built-in button, like rubbing Aladdin’s lamp, a technical advisor ( W Motors-trained engineers ) can come to your aid, no matter the time or destination. Your wish is my command…
The Lykan HyperSport also has a 3.7-litre twin turbo engine and 740 bhp of torque; the top speed is 385 km/h and in 2.8 seconds it accelerates from 0 to a whopping 100 km/h!
The beast has already featured in Hollywood movie Fast and Furious 7 and video games such as Project CARS, Driveclub and many more.
As Stephanie Brinley, senior analyst at industry experts IHS Automotive says: “It’s special, it’s unique, and you can be darn sure that there’s like two other people in the world that have what you have.”
