W Motors Fenyr SuperSport Is the Middle East’s Idea of a Hypercar

Ever heard of W Motors? That’s the name of a company founded in Lebanon and headquartered in Dubai, responsible for the Lykan HyperSport. Yeah, that weird-looking hypercar from the tower jump in Furious 7. Today we’ll focus on the Fenyr SuperSport, which is the Lykan’s successor. Looks quite “interesting,” doesn’t it?  w-motors-fenyr-supersport-is-dubai-s-idea-of-a-hypercar-video-photo-gallery_7

Be it as it may, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Furthermore, the Lebanese-based automaker knows a thing or two about aerodynamics. It may not look as beautiful as a Ferrari LaFerrari, Porsche 918 Spyder, or McLaren P1, but the Fenyr SuperSport is stupendously quick.

Under the hood, you’ll find a mid-mounted 4-liter flat-6 with two turbocharges, developed by RUF Automobile GmbH, a German tuning company specialized in Porsches that gave us the barbarous CTR Yellowbird. The engine is still in development, though, but W Motors promises more than 900 horsepower (671 kW) and 886 lb-ft (1,200 Nm) of torque from the 4-liter boxer.

You could say that this is a Porsche 911 Turbo on steroids, but that’s far off the mark. The W Motors Fenyr SuperSport was made to be fast in a straight line – 2.7 seconds is all it takes to accelerate from a dead still to 62 mph (100 km/h). Depending on how brave you are, W Motors says their new hypercar will top out at over 248 mph (400 km/h). It’s not on par with the Bugatti Veyron, but still…

Regarding engineering, Magna Steyr Italy and hundreds of professionals from “leading companies in the automotive world” are working on the development of the W Motors Fenyr SuperSport. To achieve the previously presented performance, the transmission comes in the guise of a fast-shifting 7-speed double-clutch unit and the bodyshell is made of carbon fiber.

As for the chassis, engineers preferred lightweight aluminum over a carbon fiber tub. Production is limited to 25 units per year. On an ending note, expect it to carry a sticker price of more than $3.4 million. By: autoevolution
