Lykan HyperSport REVIEW IN CANADA
The Dubai based brand W Motors is not exactly well known, but its Lykan HyperSport supercar became world-famous after starring in one of the craziest driving scenes in cinema history in the movie ‘Furious 7’ where Vin Diesel (Dominic Toretto) and Paul Walker (Brian O’Conner) steal this exotic sports car from one of the Etihad Towers in Abu Dhabi and end up jumping the vehicle from building to building.
ENGINE AND PERFORMANCE
It has a 3.7-liter twin-turbocharged engine that can produce 740 hp (552 kW) and 960 Nm of torque. The engine of the Lykan HyperSport is mated to either a six-speed sequential manual gearbox or a seven-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic gearbox. With rear-wheel-drive, it accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds and from 0 to 200 km/h in 9.4 seconds. Its top speed is 385 km/h and has a combined fuel consumption of 13.5L/100 km.
If you wonder why the Lykan HyperSport is so expensive, one factor is it’s produced in a limited number (7 to be exact) and its Key and Daytime running lights are made of real diamonds and you can customize it based on your preference with either Sapphire or Rubi.
It measures 4.48 m long, 1.94 m wide, 1.17 m high, and 2.63 m in wheelbase. Curb weight is 1,380 kg.
Use By Police
If we were to compile a list of the most visually attractive cars, police vehicles would not occupy a place in that classification… with few honorable exceptions.
For example, the Australian police have a striking Honda Civic Type R, and the Japanese have a spectacular Nissan GT-R.
In Italy, they have a Ferrari 458 seized from the mafia and in France, they also have an Alpine A110. However, the Abu Dhabi Police Lykan HyperSport you are looking at tops all of the above.
Beyond Lykan HyperSport
After the Lykan HyperSport, W Motors has introduced the Fenyr SuperSport. A more powerful and faster supercar, but a little less exclusive, with 100 units scheduled to be manufactured.
Lykan HyperSport VERDICT
It is a bird? it is a plane? No, it’s a hypercar. The W Motors Lykan HyperSport is a highly exclusive supercar featuring in the movie Furious 7 with a one of a kind design and impeccable performance.
