W Motors LYKAN HyperSport Makes Production Debut in Monaco This Week – Racecar In Pipeline?



 

 

 

Since winning 2013’s Best New Exotic car award here on Car-Revs-Daily.com,  the W Motors team has been anything but idle. The Lykan HyperSport’s whirlwind tour continues this spring with its European debut in Monaco April 17th through the 20th.

Despite not exactly being street-legal in Europe and the United States yet — that is not likely to be a problem for this hypercar’s ~ten total owners. Not street legal there?

Here is how the buyer conversations might go…

“Let’s have the Lykan as our Paul Ricard HTTT track car, or maybe we should just order it shipped to the Singapore penthouse?”

This is a level of affluence that means the Lykan will probably have its own special parking space.

In the cargo hold of a an owner’s A380!

It is an amazing machine — with powertrains by RUF that owe their original boxer layouts to Porsche — before being heavily upgraded to a race-winning level of power output.

The Lykan also has a very appealing and unique aesthetic to every component, which speaks to the ultra-demanding clientele in this price range. It is not just a car: it is a showpiece.

But this artwork can dance sideways and hit 60-mph in just 2.8 seconds! It also has holographic dash displays, diamonds in its LED headlights, a carbon-fiber key to automatically open the scissor suicide doors on approach, and many more stunning features throughout.

Cruise over to the W Motors site for even more info — and stay tuned for the next-gen SuperSport, which is promised to be slightly more affordable and produced in higher numbers than this extremely exclusive launch model for W Motors.

Or even better, the Lykan’s facebook page will keep you updated on all the car’s adventures and achievements.

Perhaps closer on the horizon than the SuperSport is W Motors Racing – which is teased below showing a full LeMans-level aerodynamic overhaul of the Lykan’s nose…
