More videos showing the new Lykan Hypersport from Beirut, Lebanon-based, W Motors, on the road are surfacing online. This footage of the Arabian supercar was shot around the streets of Monaco during the recent Top Marques show.
With a price tag of around US$3.4 million that amounts to a $1.35 million Ferrari LaFerrari, a $1.15 million McLaren P1 and a $845,000 Porsche 918 Spyder ($3.345 million all together), the Hypersport is one of the most expensive new cars in the world, but also one of the rarest, as only seven examples will be built.
There’s still some mystery surrounding its 740hp (770PS) 3.7-liter turbocharged flat-six powertrain, but all evidence points to a Porsche engine tuned by German specialist RUF.
