Lykan Hypersport Debuts in Qatar

The Arab world’s first supercar has finally made its public debut at the 2013 Qatar Motor Show.

W Motors has taken its time with the reveal of its maiden supercar project, and a month behind schedule it has finally debuted its Lykan Hypersport supercar. The Beirut-based automaker first announced it would be revealed in Dubai at the end of last year, but it has only just made its first public debut at the 2013 Qatar Motor Show. Limited to seven cars worldwide each priced at $3.4 million, it boasts signature diamond encrusted LED lights, a gold-plated hood, a carbon-fiber chassis, gold-stitched leather seats and "fully functional holographic display with interactive motion."

The car has been in development for six years with companies such as RUF Automobile, Viotti, Studiotorino, Magna Steyr Italia and ID4MOTION all having a hand in its creation. To bypass the lengthy introduction, simply head to the 4:50 mark when the wraps come off the new supercar.

Power is said to come from a mid-mounted twin-turbo flat-six engine that produces 750 horsepower and 737 lb-ft of torque, translating to a 0-62 mph time of 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 245 mph. A Special Edition Cyrus Klepcys watch worth more than $200,000 also forms part of the seven-figure package.
