A rare supercar Lykan HyperSport, which took part in the filming of the seventh part of the Fast and Furious franchise, will be put up for sale at RubiX auction. The price of the car has not yet been announced, however, according to preliminary data, it may amount to several million dollars.
Emirati-based W Motors, founded in 2012 in Lebanon, is considered the first ever developer of luxury and fast cars in the Middle East. 10 copies of the Lykan HyperSport were specially prepared for the 2015 movie “Fast and Furious 7”, 9 of which were destroyed during filming. Thus, the only surviving car will go under the hammer.
At the same time, even fewer cars that were not filmed in films, but were handed over to customers, were released – only seven pieces. The cost of each of them was 3.4 million dollars, which made the Lykan HyperSport one of the most expensive production cars of its time.
The coupe, which received the status of “the first Arab supercar”, was developed in collaboration with the Italian design studio StudioTorino. The car was equipped with a 3.7-liter twin-turbo unit of the German company RUF Automotive, specializing in the refinement of Porsche cars.
The engine, paired with a seven-speed “robot” with two clutches, develops 780 hp. from. and 960 Nm of torque. Lykan HyperSport is able to accelerate from zero to the first “hundred” in 2.8 seconds, and acceleration to 200 km / h takes 9.4 seconds. The maximum speed of the supercar is 395 km per hour.
