New 3.4 Million Dollar Supercar Debuts: Video

Founded just last year in 2012, the United Arab Emirates’ W Motors has already designed, engineered, and manufactured a supercar. We’re not talking about your run-of-the-mill supercar either—assuming, of course, that supercars can actually be run-of-the-mill. Rather, we’re talking about a supercar with a starting price of $3.4 million dollars. What, you might ask, could possibly warrant such an outrageous price?

Well for starters, the Lykan HyperSport’s interior is accented with gold, diamonds, and platinum. Yes, real gold, diamonds, and platinum. Plus, as Motor Authority reports, included as part of your supercar purchase is a watch that costs nearly as much as a brand new Lamborghini Gallardo. Additionally, though the car itself was manufactured in Italy and developed with the help of Germany’s RUF and Austria’s Magna Steyr, it’s considered to be the first ever Arabian supercar.

Capable of 750-hp and 737 lb.-ft. of torque, the Lykan HyperSport was formally introduced at the Quatar Motor Show. Its mid-mounted, twin-turbo six-cylinder helps the car accelerate to 60-mph in 2.8 seconds and will ultimately propel the car a top speed of 245-mph. As far as its design goes, it’s clear the Lykan is head and shoulders above anything else on the market. Angles and deep creases dominate the Lykan’s primarily carbon fiber body—giving it a futuristic, almost Aventador-like appearance that you can see in the above video.

According to the automaker’s website, next for the Arabian company is a lower trim Lykan, which will be called the SuperSport. W Motors says they’ll only manufacture five of each vehicle to preserve exclusivity, but at $3.4 million—we seriously doubt they’ll ever have to worry about the car going mainstream.
