By Deeq on 20 Apr 2015 in Super cars, Other blogs

Attached Image Pretty sure most of you have caught the latest Fast n Furious movie. As car enthusiasts you should've realised by now that the Fast n Furious movies are not only about racing, but are also known for using rare Sportscars and Supercars in their movies. Besides the McLaren's, Lamborghini's, Ferrari's and Bugatti used, there was 1 particular car that not many people could name, not even some petrolheads, probably because there are less than 10 units wordlwide.

The Lykan Hypersport, an extremely limited, hyper-expensive supercar. How limited? Just seven examples. How expensive? A mere US$3.4 million(Imagine how much it would cost in Singapore with all the fees, COE and tiered ARF).

Dubai-based W Motors, the company that builds the Lykan, calls itself the first Arab supercar company. Founded by Lebanese-born Ralph Debbas, the W is dedicated to the kind of super-ultimate luxury that only folks with oil-sheik money can dream of.

The car itself is a mid-rear engine layout powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbo flat-six sourced from Porsche tuner RUF. The 770 hp and 708 ft.-lb. of torque pulse through a six-speed sequential or seven-speed PDK gearbox to the rear wheels. W Motors says the whole setup's good for 0-100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds(My phone restart takes alot longer than that).

Inside is where things get really nutzo. As in, seats-stitched-with-gold-thread nutzo. And claimed-holographic-center-display-that-may-not-actually-exist nutzo.
