W Motors Claims Japanese Businessman Bought Five Fenyr SuperSports

W Motors claims that a Japanese businessman has purchased no less than five examples of the Fenyr SuperSport Launch Edition.

The vehicle was first unveiled to the world towards the end of 2015 and in following years, the car has been shown off at events around the world. The company’s first production vehicle, the Lykan HyperSport, was capped at just seven units but according to our sources, most of those remain unsold.

In comparison to the HyperSport, the Fenyr SuperSport is slightly more approachable but evidently, has also proved to be quite difficult for W Motors to sell. The company’s statement that a Japanese businessman purchased the final five of ten planned Launch Edition models suggests that in the near four years since the car’s unveiling, only 10 orders have been placed.

The Arab-Lebanese car manufacturer has posted a series of renderings of the SuperSport online and asked its fans to guess which colors the Japanese purchaser opted for. Among the colors previewed are light blue, yellow, dark grey, white, red, green, purple, silver, dark blue, and orange.

Powering the Fenyr SuperSport is a 3.8-liter flat-six engine sourced from RUF that pumps out a total of 800 hp and 722 lb-ft (980 Nm) of torque. W Motors claims the supercar hits 62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.7 seconds, 124 mph (200 km/h) in 9.4 seconds and is capable of a top speed of 245 mph (395 km/h). These figures are impressive but the fact that prices start at $1.4 million and so few have been sold suggests that many supercar enthusiasts and collectors would rather spend their money elsewhere.

    Not a surprise really. Can’t remember that I’ve seen any pictures of it in the wild. Apart from some marketing stuff maybe. Way way too expensive cars and the company probably wouldn’t have survived since 2012 without Arab cash origin.

    This is just my take on it obviously.

    Nothing but an ego project at this point.

    seen it in person – both the Lykan and this. Interesting. Narrow up front and really wide in the back. Couldn’t decide if I liked it or not….

  • The only guy who I can imagine is the ZOZOTOWN founder, but I doubt if he’ll buy five of these.
