LAUNCH DATE: NOW PRICE: AUD$2.53M SPECS: 597kW/980Nm
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.
