The Arab World's First Supercar


Supercar-hungry and oil-rich, the Middle East finally has a high-performance machine to call its own.

Brainchild of newly established Beirut-based company W Motors, the Hyper-Sport and Super-Sport are set to become the Arab world's first supercars. During a swanky event at Sursock Palace in the Lebanese capital, the fledgling automotive startup announced its plans to produce two models, claiming the Hyper-Sport will be "the most exclusive high performance car ever made...and most luxurious sports car in the world." There was no word on how much they plan to sell it for, however.

Limited to five cars worldwide, it boasts signature diamond encrusted LED lights, a gold-plated hood, a carbon-fiber chassis and a "fully functional holographic display with interactive motion." So it won't come cheap. The Lebanese supercar was developed with the help of Austrian manufacturer Magna Steyr and Porsche tuning specialist RUF. Although official performance figures have yet to be revealed, a 0-60 time of less than 2.8 seconds has been touted. The Hyper-Sport will be officially unveiled this December in Dubai so we should learn more nearer the time.
