£2m sounds like a lot of money. But actually it’s loads. And exactly what you’ll need to get your name on a Lykan Hypersport’s V5 – the Middle East’s first and only supercar.
Lykan Hypersport Specs, The Lykan HyperSport is the first Middle Eastern supercar and one of the world’s fastest. Powered by a 3.8-litre twin-turbo flat-six engine, it goes from 0 to 60kph in less than three seconds and has a top speed of 395kph. It was first displayed at the Dubai Motor Show in November 2013, and was recently in the spotlight at the Shanghai Auto Show 2015.
Lykan Hypersport Specs
In Furious 7, the latest instalment of the Fast and Furious franchise, the car has diamond-coated LED headlights.
The pilot-testing of the Lykan comes on the heels of unveiling a Rolls-Royce Phantom with a 999 number plate to mark the opening of the GCC Traffic Week in March. The luxury car is being used for special events and not on daily patrols.
Dubai Police’s fleet of supercars includes a Lexus RCF, equipped with computers and cameras, a McLaren MP4-12C, Aston Martin One-77, Audi R8, Bugatti Veyron, Mercedes SLS, BMW M6, Lamborghini Aventador, Ferrari FF, and a Bentley Continental GT.
With a promised 770 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque from a 3.8-liter flat-six Porsche engine (from famed tuner RUF), and a choice of a six-speed sequential gearbox or a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, the W Motors Lykan Hypersport is utterly bonkers. The 2.8-second 0-60 mph time and 240 mph top speed sound almost reasonable in that context.
