Fast and the Furious - The Most expensive car in the world - Lykan HyperSport

The Lykan Hypersport is a limited production sports car by W Motors, aLebanese based company founded in 2012. It is the first supercar to be produced in the Middle East and featured in Fast and Furious 7 the movie.[1] W Motors plans to produce only seven units of the car.[2] The first pre-production Lykan HyperSport was launched at the International Dubai Motor Show in November 2013.[3]
Fast and the furious star - The Lykan

At US$ 3.4 million, the Lykan HyperSport is the third most expensive car to ever be made, behind the very limited ( seven created, three sold)Lamborghini Veneno (US$4.5 million)[4] and the one-off Maybach Exelero(US$8 million).[5] As reference, the Lykan Hypersport is US$1 million more expensive than the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, which was officially the fastest road car in the world.
The cause of the car's high price tag is due to its included options. It is the first car to have diamonds in its headlights. The front lights are made up of titanium LED blades with 420 diamonds (15cts).[6] The buyer can choose which rubies and diamonds they want embedded in the headlights. In addition, the client can choose between a selection of rubies, diamonds, yellow diamonds, or sapphires to be integrated into the vehicle at purchase.



The Lykan HyperSport is powered by a twin turbo flat-six 3.7-litre (3746 cc) engine from the Ruf CTR3 [7] producing 552 kW (740 bhp; 751 PS) and 960 N·m (708 lb·ft) of torque.[8] The car is claimed to have a top speed of 385 km/h (239 mph) and accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in 2.8 seconds.
