The Lykan Hypersport: A Close-Up From Dubai
The world’s most expensive car goes ballistic.
February 04, 2013
Master Sergeant Michael Sczcygiel of the United States Air Force is stationed in Dubai and supplied us with exclusive shots of a rare gem that we now know as “the most expensive car in the world.” It's great to know I have more than one supporter on my auto blog!
Last Thursday the Qatar Auto Show unveiled W Motor’s 3.4 million dollar Lykan Hypersport: a supercar designed by Ralph Debbas. The Lamborghinni-esqe Hypersport has teamed up with RUF racing, a custom Porsche builder, and Magna Steyr, an engineering and manufacturing company.
RUF racing is said to be supplying a flat-six power mill capable of producing a 750hp/738tq. Computer simulations suggest the RUF Racing engine will launch the car from 0-62 in 2.8 seconds and top out at 242mph.
W Motors revealed it will limit production to only five Hypersports. The Lykan will be the first to offer unique features such as a gold-plated hood, a holographic display, gold and platinum keys and finally, diamond-encrusted LED headlights and taillights (my guess is Rhianna called first dibs).
I want to take a moment to thank Michael, his team and all the men and women who protect this great nation. It's because of you all that we are able to do everything we do in our daily lives, without fear of harm. My kids, wife and I thank you for those freedoms. When you get back in town, contact me, dinner and brew are on me! And thank you for your photos!
Couldn’t 3.4 Million dollars buy a few faster cars? What's your opinion of the Lyken Hypersport? Post your comments below!
