US$3.4 million Lykan Hypersport

When Ralph R Debbas founded W Motors in Beirut with Sari El Kahalil in July 2012, he wanted to create the world’s most expensive, luxurious, and exclusive car. Well he’s made a fair fist of it with the Lykan Hypersport, which has been unveiled at the 2013 Qatar Motor Show. W Motors will limit numbers of the car, which it heralds as “the first Arabian hypercar,” to just seven, each priced from US$3.4 million.

W Motors, which is now based in Dubai, is claiming performance figures that put the rear-wheel-drive Lykan Hypersport in the same league as theBugatti Veyron Super Sports. Powered by a mid-rear positioned, twin turbocharged flat-six engine generating 750 horsepower, W Motors says the car can go from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in a neck-snapping 2.8 seconds, on the way to a top speed of 395 km/h (245 mph).

But the exorbitant price tag isn’t just due to the car’s claimed performance. Sure to dazzle oncoming traffic, the LED headlights feature white gold surrounds encrusted with diamonds. And the bling doesn’t end there, with buyers able to choose to integrate rubies, emeralds or sapphires throughout the car depending on their color choice.

The interior boasts gold-stitched leather and features what the company calls a “Virtual Holographic Display,” which acts as the instrument panel.

The car’s angular styling was inspired by the Arabic symbol for seven, which is “V” and is of course considered a lucky number. This was also the thinking behind limiting the number of cars produced to seven. A special plate embedded in the roof above the rear window displays the number of the vehicle, along with the delivery date.

For their $3.4 million, buyers will also receive a limited edition Cyrus Klepcy watch valued at $200,000 and a 24/7 concierge service.
