Not only a high performance car, but a sculpture crafted of the most advanced material available in the world today.
Each HyperSport unit will get a mid-rear mounted flat six, twin turbocharged 3.6 engine capable of developing 750 hp at 7100 rpm and to deliver a maximum torque of massive 910 Nm at 4000 rpm.

The dark grey painted fully functional prototype model which bowed under the light of the Dubai Motor Show is indeed striking.

As it has been proudly announced, the Lykan HyperSport will get a unique front light system system of diamond-encrusted Titanium LED Blades. A total number of 420 diamonds (15ct) will be used for every single model. In addition to the interior comfort elements like trip computer and premium sound system, the W Motor’s model also features absolutely unique 9-inch hologram display with interactive motion and gesture recognition. Inside, each lucky owner will also find a limited-edition Cyrus Klepcys watch. This specially designed $200.000 masterpiece will be built in a series of just seven examples. Each one is dedicated only for future units of the Lykan HyperSport. All this exclusiveness combined into a one statue of nowadays top class engineering and design has its own price. A price tag for a single Lykan model is $3.4 million USD. Extraordinary! Moreover, there are rumors that three orders are already placed.
In addition to the unveiled functional car, W Motors also demonstrated a 1:1 model of the Lykan painted in Saphyr Blue – a really outstanding choice.
