That's a spectacular amount of money to spend on the same car.
It must be nice to have the kind of money that allows you to order 5 special edition of the same hypercar. According to the Dubai based W Motors' Facebook page, that's exactly what has happened. According to the post, a Japanese businessman has opened his checkbook and dropped an order on them to the tune of $1.5 million apiece. That means the guy paid $7 million for the last five of the 10 Fenyr SuperSport Launch Editions being built.
We don't exactly why he's ordered five, but we imagine it's mainly as an investment. Perhaps four to tuck away for a few years and one to enjoy on the road and track. And you would really want to experience and enjoy one. The Fenyr SuperSport boasts a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter flat-six engine heated up by the legendary German tuning house RUF. The 780 horsepower and 708 pound-feet of torque generated go to the rear wheels, and that excess of power is controlled by a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
All that power is a moot point if the car isn't light though, and the Fenyr SuperSport is light. The tubular aluminum chassis is dressed in bodywork made of carbon-fiber that uses a healthy dose of graphene composite. That helps bring the weight of the Fenyr SuperSport down to a feather-like 2,976 lbs. On top of that, the hypercar uses an advanced active aerodynamics system, including a three-piece Triptych Active Spoiler.
According to W Motors, the Fenyr SuperSport's performance lives up to the technology and hits from 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds before topping out at 249 mph. Reportedly, the order was made by major Japanese businessman and car collector Tetsumi Shinchi, but W Motors isn't revealing what trim and colors he's ordered. We'll probably find out when the businessman debuts them at the Mega Supercar Motor Show in Fukuoka, Japan, in 2021.
