The title is due to the recent and current uptick in dogman and werewolf sightings. One of them not so far from me, even! As you may probably know, these critters are also known as Lycans and to inquire deeply is lycanthropy. Nowt new there…
The nice and speedy ride is made by W Motors … and it has been dubbed a Lykan HyperSport.
It is a fine machine, I am told.
It certainly has a lot of excellence and talent going into it. Here are the overview paragraphs from that awful place.
The Lykan Hypersport is a Lebanese limited production hypercar built by W Motors, a U.A.E. based company, founded in 2012 in Lebanon with the collaboration of Lebanese, French and Italian engineers. It is the first supercar to be produced in the Middle East, and is featured in the film Furious 7, and the video games Project CARS, Driveclub, Asphalt 8: Airborne, Asphalt Nitro, Forza Motorsport 6, and GT Racing 2: The Real Car Experience, Forza Horizon 3, CSR Racing and CSR Racing 2. The Lykan can also be briefly seen in the second Fate of the Furious trailer. It is the first car to be designed and produced indigenously in the Arab World.
It must be a treat to drive. RUF is world renowned as a producer of some serious Porsches that qualify as their own make.
The Lykan HyperSport is powered by a 3.7 litre (3746cc) twin-turbocharged Flat-six engine developed by RUF, producing 581.6 kW (780 hp) and 960 N·m (708 lb·ft) of torque. The car was shown to have a top speed of 395 km/h (245 mph) and be capable of accelerating from 0 to 62.137 mph (0.000 to 100.000 km/h) in 2.8 seconds. In June 2015, the Abu Dhabi police force purchased a Lykan HyperSport. The Abu Dhabi Police car is included in the total of seven, meaning only six will be available for purchase.
here ya go
Bit pricey, though.
At US$3.4 million, the Lykan HyperSport is the third most expensive vehicle built to date, after the exclusive (seven created, three sold) Lamborghini Veneno (US$4.6 million) and Maybach Exelero concept (US$8 million). As reference, the Lykan Hypersport is twice as expensive as the Koenisegg Agera R (US$1.7 million).
The HyperSport is the first car to have headlights with embedded jewels; they contain titanium LED blades with 420 diamonds (15cts).; although buyers have a selection of rubies, diamonds, yellow diamonds, and sapphires to be integrated into the vehicle’s headlights at purchase based on the color choice. The car also utilizes a holographic display system on the center console with interactive motion features, as well as gold stitching on the seats. The company does not plan to introduce the vehicle in the United States, but the family of Ilan Ramon from Haifa, Israel holds the patents to market the vehicle in US. There is a discrepancy among sources as to how many cars have been sold, with reports varying from four to seven sales. At least two of the cars have been sold, one to an anonymous buyer, as revealed in a YouTube video by W Motors, and the Abu Dhabi Police Edition.
It sure is right purdy.
