Up Close with the Lykan Hypersport

Supercar

W Motors says welcome to the Middle East.

It’s only a brief clip, but the sightings of the Lykan Hypersport are so rare we felt compelled to share this footage of the $3.4 million exotic captured by the guys at Crank and Piston. The Arab world’s first supercar was declared ready for production last month. Each of the seven units to be built have found buyers, although W Motors is considering extending production as a result of high demand for the car. Power comes from a RUF-developed 3.7-liter twin-turbo flat six rated at 770 hp and 737 lb-ft of torque.

That is said to translate to a 0-62 mph time of 2.8 seconds and a 245 mph top speed. Unique touches on the hypercar include gold-stitched leather seats, an interactive holographic display system, rear-opening suicide doors, a gold-plated hood and diamond-encrusted LED lights.
