The W Motors SuperSport Revealed
There’s a new beast in town, coming from W Motors. It’s called the Lykan HyperSport and it’s just been revealed at the Dubai Motor Show and already the company has released the first renderings of their upcoming SuperSport model, expected to torture tires starting 2015.
Taking the Lykan legacy into consideration, the SuperSport features an aggressive front fascia, LED headlights and massive air intakes. It’s looking like an modern mix between the Terminator and the infamous vampire killer. You can’t miss the ventilated hood, carbon fiber side skirts and side air intakes, while the massive rear diffuser and four-tailpipe exhaust system are powerful assets.
No idea about technical specs as of now. W Motors CEO Ralph Debbas told The National the SuperSport will offer “even better performance” than the HyperSport. Translation: bigger numbers than the ones featured by the mid-rear mounted 3.7-liter twin-turbo flat-six engine, 750 HP (559 kW) and 960 Nm (708 lb-ft) of torque. Is it humanly possible to handle an acceleration from 0-100 km/h faster than 2.8 seconds and hit a higher top speed of 385 km/h (239 mph)?
Oh, and by the way.. The SuperSport will be a limited edition of 25 units and pricing will most likely exceed $3.4 (€2.5 / £2.1) million. How’s that for hyper-car?!
