According to W Motors, the Fenyr SuperSport will utilize a RUF-designed (the famous Porsche tuner) flat-six engine, much like the original Lykan. However, the Fenyr’s twin-turbocharged engine has grown in displacement to four liters and now summons an unthinkable 900 horsepower and 885 lb.-ft. of torque, funneled exclusively to a seven-speed dual clutch gearbox.
That tremendous power is said to unlock a zero to 60 mph sprint in under 2.7 seconds, as well as top speeds in excess of 248 mph. Not what you’d call lackluster. Part of that performance is made possible thanks to the Fenyr’s featherweight carbon fiber body, which clothes an aluminum tubular chassis underneath.
While there’s a distinct familial resemblance between the Fenyr SuperSport and Lykan, the new car’s carbon fiber body nip tucks and future-proofs many of its predecessor’s features, from revised rear air intakes to a redesigned hood, and new front and rear fascias. The lines look well wrought, as they should—the Fenyr SuperSport will bring the W Motors brand to an even larger market.
According to W Motors, 25 Fenyr SuperSports will be built on an annual basis. Production is currently handled by company partner Magna Steyr Italy, but as W Motors has now established its headquarters in Dubai, the company soon hopes to shift production to the United Arab Emirates as well.
Given its predecessor retailed for a stratospheric $3.4 million, most will be clamoring to know the price of the Fenyr. Unfortunately W Motors has yet to reveal those numbers…but don’t expect them to be “cheap” by any means.
