W Motors Reveals New Fenyr SuperSport in Dubai
17 Novembre 2015 - Autoblog
Dubai-based W Motors used its home auto show to reveal the new Fenyr SuperSport. You may recognize its predecessor, the Lykan HyperSport, that was depicted flying in between skyscrapers in Furious 7. Consider this to be its followup act.
The Fenyr SuperSport is built on a tubular aluminum chassis and comes cloaked in carbon-fiber bodywork. Power comes from a a 4.0-liter twin-turbo flat-six made by Porsche specialist RUF. The forced-induction boxer engine drives a claimed 900 horsepower and 885 pound-feet of torque through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The result is a 0-62 time quoted at under 2.7 seconds, and a top speed of around 250 miles per hour.
W Motors partnered with Magna Steyr to develop the Fenyr. Don't expect to see too many of them on the road, though, because W Motors only plans on producing 25 examples, each priced at $1.85 million.
That makes it (relatively) more common than the less powerful Lykan HyperSport, of which W Motors made seven examples that listed for over $3 million apiece.
