Last summer brought word that the Middle East was finally getting its own homegrown supercars in the form of two all-new vehicles – the Hypersport and Supersport – from W Motors. Now, just weeks after its official debut at the 2013 Qatar Motor Show, we are learning more details about its initial release, aptly called the Lykan Hypersport.

Its appearance is radical (looking a bit as if it were penned by Lamborghini), but it more than substantiates its performance. According to the automaker, the Hypersport will boast a twin-turbo flat-six generating about 750 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque. The mid-mounted engine will propel the Arab supercar to 60 miles per hour in a blistering 2.7 seconds as it heads towards a top speed of 245 mph.

W Motors has reportedly already taken over 100 orders for the two-seater that will initially be assembled in Italy (production will move to the Middle East later). Before you reach for your checkbook, keep in mind that the list price on the Hypersport is a very Middle East-like $3.4 million. Yes, each.

      hmm i wonder what makes this car worth over 3 million, other than just because they can.

        Diamond encrusted headlights, gold plated hood, the usual gaudy middle eastern car treatments. http://autos.yahoo.com/news/diamonds-are-a-car%E2%80%99s-best-friend--middle-east%E2%80%99s-first-supercar-to-cost--3-4-million-195257614.html

      For all that money you think it would at least look nice.

      For that money you could buy new Lamborghini, put a body kit on it, and still have change left over to buy new emblems!

      Not my first choice, given its price I'd try and find a McLaren F1. Plus that way I'd be able to bring two friends along for the ride

        Agreed. Given an unlimited amount of money, it's surprising how uninventive this is. YAOS: yet another overpriced supercar.

        Does it have an optional trunk mounted car bomb?

      Any entry into the supercar arena should be welcomed. If the company can survive by living up to the competition, it will inevitably become nothing short of great. The price probably needs to come down significantly though.
