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!
