W Motors’ 900 HP Fenyr SuperSport Hits The Road In Dramatic Fashion

With all the hype surrounding the latest models from Lamborghini, Ferrari, Porsche and McLaren, it’s easy to forget a new supercar that was recently launched by the Dubai-based W Motors.

Yes, Dubai is filled with supercars from any manufacturer you can think of, yet it’s not known for making them. However, by releasing an official video featuring the production version of the Fenyr SuperSport, W Motors shows that they mean business.

Portrayed out in the open, surrounded by lots of drama and with plenty of CGI, the Fenyr SuperSport is “named after the most aggressive and vicious wolf in mythology”, the manufacturer says, referring to the Norse ‘Fenrir’, a son of Loki and the one foretold to kill Odin during Ragnarok, the battle to end all battles.

Mythology (and Marvel movie franchise) aside, the Fenyr SuperSport is powered by the engine of the Porsche RUF, meaning a 4.0-liter twin-turbo flat-six that sends 900 HP and 1,200 Nm (885 lb-ft) of torque to the rear wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. It takes less than 2.7 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100km/h (62mph) and, flat-out, it will reach speeds in excess of 400 km/h (249 mph).

This wolf definitely has some fangs now, doesn’t it? Now we’re waiting to see if it can kill some of the established “gods” in the hypercar niche…

    I love the styling!

    It’s an interesting performance car. Yet, I’m kind of jealous at its nameplate: “Fenyr (or, Fenrir, Loki’s son.)”.

    I was going to use that name, in a project car, someday: Team INDESTRI Motorsports’ 1975 Volvo 242 “Fenrir”. (Could’ve been, the most insane Volvo, in SEMA’s history. But, now I’m too late…)

    its OK, looks good as a in game car. better than the lykan

      It is always a good thing when someone makes a progress. It is their second only car and it looks like they saw some of the styling issues of the Lykan and fixed them … In a way. Let’s hope that this impression will be kept in the real life too and not only in the CGI. I remember one of the first Koenigseggs – they were prety awesome at the time they arrived, but are a bit cartoonish (or better – concept look) compared to the much more mature current cars.

  • Auf Wiedersehen

    All these companies coming out of the woodwork to cash in on the supercar market and millionaires who have to have the newest thing. Problem is, they all look the same. It’s brilliant actually, because rich people will spend big if it means they have something no one else (or a limited few) has.

    Looks great, want to see it on the track in real form and no CGI renderings.
