Lykan Hypersport is the Arab World's First Supercar, Costs $3.4 Million and has 750hp

|

With a voracious appetite for all kinds of supercars and plenty of wealth to sustain it thanks to its oil-rich real estate, it shouldn't come to as a surprise that the Arab world has finally managed to produce its own hypercar in the guise of W Motors's Lykan Hypersport, which was introduced at this week's Qatar Motor Show.

While many questions remain unanswered, what we do know about the Beirut-based company's edgy-looking (some may say, Lamborghini-esque) Lykan Hypersport is that only seven cars will be produced, each carrying a base sticker price of $3.4 million (about €2.4 million at today's exchange rates), which includes a $200,000 limited edition Cyrus Klepcy watch.

The Lykan Hypersport comes with a twin-turbocharged flat-six engine (likely sourced from Porsche) with 750-horsepower positioned behind the driver and can reach 100km/h (62mph) in 2.8 seconds before topping out at 395km/h (245mph) – yep, you're not the only one thinking about 'hagwalah' right now…

Other notable features include a world first diamond-encrusted LED lights, gold-stitched leather and what the company describes as a Virtual Holographic Display for the instrument panel.

Thanks to 'Fresco' for the tip!

I love the front! were are the interior pics!

ben nibohs said... »January 31, 2013

wow for a first car that looks astonishingly beautiful! and 750hp is probably more than enough i suspect...

MitchellCallahan said... »January 31, 2013

I honestly thought this was a Subaru BRZ/ Scion FRS/ Toyota 86 body kit....

This thing looks like it was designed to be in a video game.

knicksnewyork said... »January 31, 2013

I'm sure if it was a European car-maker you'd love it racist pig. The car obviously took some cues from the Aventador, but is beautiful nonetheless

SomeRandomCommenter said... »January 31, 2013

I thought the same thing when I saw the front. The back reminds me of the messed up, edgy, LF-A. :/

SomeRandomCommenter said... »January 31, 2013

There's nothing beautiful about the rear end.

Wonder if it comes in a "Jihad Special Edition" with an onboard self-destruct button???

It's not stupid and pointless if it is a toy crafted for the wealthy, or any demographic interested in splurging a ton of cash.

From your perspective, recouping 28 million dollars of venture capital investment (or perhaps even more since we don't know if they'll take a loss on each car they'll sell) might seem like a waste of money for you, but they are trying to build brand cache, and a name worthy of being mentioned along the likes of Lamborghini & Bugatti, so the investment, whatever it is, is fully worth it from their end. Unless you think supercars in general are stupid and worthless.

I do agree, that front end is way too generic, so are some of the other aspects of the car. But I think it's what the arab consumer wants, and those looking to splurge on a good looking, super-car alternative to the Aston Martin One-77, and Bugatti Veyron. The hood, a-pillar, b-pillar, and rear-quarter panels are well executed, and are my fav aspects, even if there are elements here of the MP4-12C, LFA, Aventador, R8, and FT-86.

Are you that who that guy who wrote church marketing 101?

If I took a peice of crap and wrapped in gold with nice scupting with engraving and put an insane price tag I am sure the arabs and elites would buy it. Having money doesn't always equate to having purchasing sense. Brand image isn't brand performance and dominance. I went to Saks and saw a nice Armani suit it was 3k label said made in china (of course). Saleman said I was buying the tayloring for the price when I showed him the label (made in china). I responded in that case I'll go to panama and get tayloring, good material and a nice trip for the same cost. He was speechless..

I think it looks amazing... but over priced...amazed at how they can squueze that kind of performance from a TT V6!!

This car looks like a movie car - A superhero's car that got trashed 15 minutes before the end of the movie. It just doesn't look like it belongs to any street.

donald seymour said... »February 01, 2013

You know real talk. I like it, but it has some nice size panel gaps. And its kinda a turn off.

Yong Thian Ding said... »February 01, 2013

Yes ! Finally there's a Super Car without a stupid V8 !

Werewolf said... »February 01, 2013

Hypercar that won't out perform cars that cost half of it. It looks like the car is trying to hard. A hypercar's reputation is earned and not bought. The design of the car isn't "beautiful", it is aggressive. A beautiful car is a Jaguar e-type, now a modern beautiful car like an Alfa Romeo 8c or Maserati A8 or GranTurismo are beautiful. They are trying to make a Duesenberg except with none of the class or prestige.
A little tip if you want a luxury car get a luxury car or if you want a sports car get a sports car, but having diamonds in your headlight is neither. Why not make a luxury car? Do not try and break into the hyper car market until they earned a spot to sit with Lamborghini, Ferrari, Zonda, etc. Why don't they shoot for the Maserati area, that would seem logical.

a flat six is not a v6... its a boxer.

NE1BUTU said... »February 01, 2013

A lot of people have been conditioned to expect the worst style and taste from Arabs. And I know it sounds totally dickish, but that stigma generally seems justified. But the reality is, this car is beautiful and unique. This looks like it could have come from Pininfarina or some other Italian design house.

donald seymour said... »February 01, 2013

Well, maybe, just maybe, It came in the game to messs things up? Just maybe...

mike said... »February 03, 2013

Well for a fact it is made in Torino,Italy by the same people who made the other supercars.So it kinda makes it European.
