Motor (Australia) - - PACE NOTES -


YOU MIGHT not have heard of Mid­dle East su­per­car com­pany W Mo­tors, but you’re prob­a­bly fa­mil­iar with its first car, the Lykan Hyper­sport. Only seven were built, with Vin Diesel in­fa­mously jump­ing one out of a Dubai sky­scraper dur­ing Fast & Fu­ri­ous 7. Its lat­est of­fer­ing is the Fenyr Su­pers­port, an all­car­bon su­per­car pow­ered by a 597kW/980Nm 3.8-litre twin-turbo flat-six de­vel­oped by Ger­man Porsche spe­cial­ists RUF, at­tached to a seven-speed dual-clutch gear­box. The rear-drive Fenyr is claimed to hit 100km/h in 2.7sec and 200km/h in 9.4sec on its way to a 395km/h top speed, de­pend­ing on the cho­sen gear­ing. Giant car­bon-ce­ramic brakes are stan­dard, but you’ll raise more eye­brows with the rear-hinged sui­cide doors. W Mo­tors plans on build­ing 25 a year in ei­ther left- or right­hand drive and the good news is that it’s a whop­ping 30 per cent cheaper than the Lykan. The bad news is that means it’s still £1.4m (AUD$2.53m), but such is the price of ex­clu­siv­ity.
