Le­banese man­u­fac­turer W Mo­tors has un­doubt­edly built a se­ri­ously fast su­per­car, but it’s the lit­tle touches that jus­tify the eye-wa­ter­ing US$3.4 mil­lion price tag. The Lykan Hyper­s­port, which made its Euro­pean de­but at the Top Mar­ques Monaco show in April, comes with 420 di­a­monds in the head­lights and more through­out the in­te­rior, sui­cide doors and all kinds of other neat touches. Un­der the skin, it’s a re­worked Ruf CTR3, which costs just a few hun­dred thou­sand. So there is some se­ri­ous badge en­gi­neer­ing go­ing on here, but W Mo­tors needs just a few cus­tomers to make a case for the Hyper­s­port, and it has them al­ready. Only seven cars will be cre­ated, and buy­ers can cus­tomise each with ru­bies and sap­phires in place of di­a­monds, for in­stance. With a top speed of 390km/h and ca­pa­ble of 0-100km/h in 2.8 sec­onds, blink and you’ll miss it.
