After months of speculation, and teasers, Arabian motor car company, W Motors finally unveiled their Lykan Hypersport at this years Qatar Motor Show and if W Motors chairman and CEO Ralph Debbas is to be believed, demand for the Lykan Hypersport has already exceeded the planned production of the Arabian supercar ten-fold.
Despite a list price of $3.4 million and the fact that W Motors only plans to produce 7 examples, Debbas claims that the company has received over 100 requests from all around the globe to purchase the Arabian supercar.
W Motors emerged towards the middle of last year. Its the brain child Lebanese entrepreneur Ralph R Debbas together with famed German contractor Magna Steyr and legendary Porsche experts RUF. Only seven will be built, each one delivered with a matching $200,000 special edition Cyrus Klepcy watch.
The car itself does actually exist now. It uses a RUF-sourced flat-six power plant producing around 750hp, 1,000Nm and a staggering $3.4 million price tag. W Motors estimates a zero to 100km/h time of just 2.8 seconds with a top speed of 385km/h.
The LykanHypersport will have signature diamond encrusted LED lights and a holographic display. Each customer will be able to choose a precious stone to have fitted to the interior of the car. The car will feature a carbon fiber frame, a gold plated hood and gold or platinum keys.
While speaking with Arabian Business Qatar earlier this week, Debbas stated “We’d like the first few cars to go to Arabs, even if we have received requests from Russia, China, the US.” Production of the Hypersport is set to kick off soon in the Italian city of Turin, before W Motors hopes to relocate production locally to either Dubai, Abu Dhabi or Doha.
Debbas then claimed that the Lykan Hypersport is the final product produced by a team of over 100 engineers who required tens of millions of dollar in start-up investments to get the production up and running.
