The W Motors Lykan Hypersport is a very perplexing supercar. Priced at an eye-popping $3.4 million, it looks like a Lamborghini turned up to 11. However, for a car that costs more than a McLaren P1 and Ferrari LaFerrari combined, it doesn't scream about its performance once the engine is started.

The Lykan Hypersport does fill the requirement of supercars to offer insane features. When it announced the car, W Motors promised diamond-encrusted LED taillights and a holographic interior display. The first models will actually be built in Italy, but production will move to the Middle East later.

With a mid-mounted, twin-turbo, 3.7-liter flat-six with a claimed 740 horsepower and 708 pound-feet of torque, the Hypersport doesn't lack for power. Still, that is somewhat lower than the 750 hp and 737 lb-ft rating from our previous story about it – the facts are often fluid in the rare world of brand new hypercar makers. W Motors also claims it can reach 60 miles per hour in 2.8 seconds and an alleged top speed of 239 mph.

The possible downside is that the company seems to have tuned the exhaust to actually be rather subdued. For as much as it costs, it should send a shiver down your spine the split-second it gets on the throttle, but the Hypersport just rumbles along. Scroll down to hear the supercar for yourself and see if it inspires a $3.4 million purchase.

      All I can say is these one off car companies must have a lot of cash to throw around or investors who see their vision because this is just awful. It seems everyone is a supercar designer and thinks their car is worth more millions that the last guy. There can be no reason whatsoever for the styling of this car. It has to be all about shocking people with weird and bizarre angles and hinges. It's just another silly car they spent millions on, and no one really cares.

      Still have no clue how this is 3.4 million...in fact I'd love to just see what materials cost on this and then see the labor/mark up.

      A crappy kit car that costs more than a Veyron?

      This is exactly what every young Middle Eastern prince or sheikh's playboy son needs as a toy. Genius.

      Whats with the dryer flex tubing? It looks like when I built a homemade cold air intake for a probe gt back in highschool. Not really something that belongs on a $3.4M supercar. That said, if it is brake duct cooling, I suppose I can forgive it.

      0.58sec - Is that a dryer hose going into the air intake?

        Kind of sounds like a dryer with bad bearings. Very weird.

      "It looks like a Lamborghini turned up to 11" More like a Lambo turned up to 1100* F in a furnace.

      Another day, another supercar...honestly, who in there right mind would choose one of these crude "kitcars" over an extensively engineered Laferrari, P1, or 918?

      The price is a little crazy but the people that buys theses types of cars don't care about that. After reading the article I though it was going to be really quiet. I actually liked it. Way louder than a Gtr. It's way futuristic.... Lambos will probably look like that in 15 years haha
