The world of unknown super cars continues to grow today as we cover the Lykan Hypersport. It was a limited production car created in Lebanon and debuted during the 2013 Qatar Motor Show. The production was limited to just 7 models, and the price was a whopping 3.4 million dollars. But that is to be expected when the headlights of the car are lined with 420 diamonds each. It is the first sports car to be completely designed in the Middle East. But this is just the beginning of this Lebanese monster that is conquering the super car world.
The Lykan Hypersport is a performance machine. It has a top speed of 245 mph (395 kph) and either a 6-Speed manual transmission or a 7-Speed dual-clutch transmission. Power comes from a 3.7 liter flat-six engine made by Ruf Automobile. The Hypersport puts out an impressive 780 hp, which is especially impressive when you realize there are only 6 cylinders inside it! The Hypersport does 0-60 in a blistering 2.8 seconds, and weighs only 3,042 lbs (1,380 kg). The horsepower, top speed, and acceleration figures on this car are pretty nuts for any car, let alone a 6 cylinder car. Its mid engine layout and rear-wheel-drive drivetrain optimize its performance capabilities. It will be succeeded by the Fenyr Supersport soon…
For a vehicle that costs well over 3 million dollars, this car is still exceedingly surpassing 3 million dollar expectations. This car has diamonds in its headlights and has gold sewn into the seats. There’s no wonder as to why the car is as expensive as it is. It is the epitome of luxury, and it looks like a true supercar. The fact that only 7 were made (and 1 went to the police department in Abu-Dhabi) makes seen even more valuable than they already are. Film and videogame representation has also helped the car cement itself in the minds of car lovers as one of the rarest and best cars ever to roll off an assembly line. The Hypersport was used in the Furious 7 movie as well as in the video game Grand Theft Auto (GTA) 5. The Lykan Hypersport was produced from 2013-2017 and has model years of 2013-2016. You’ll be hard-pressed to find one of these cars for sale, as only 6 were ever sold to the public.
