W Motors unveil of the most recent hypercar, the Fenyr SuperSport“The earth will shake violently, trees will be uprooted, mountains will fall, and all binds will snap – Fenyr will be free.”

If you thought the Lykan HyperSport was wild, take a look at this latest creation by Lebanon-based sports car maker, W Motors. It’s called the Fenyr SuperSport, and it’s debuting for the first time at the 2015 Dubai Motor Show. It’s developed in collaboration with engineering firm Magna Steyr Italy and RUF Automobile Germany.

The name “Fenyr,” seems to originate from Prose Edda – an old Norse literature. Fenyr or “Fenrir” is one of the infamous wolves in Nordic mythology. Under the hood, the supercar has a twin-turbo 4.0 litre flat-six mid-rear engine that “delivers from 900 hp and 1,200 Nm”. It does 0-100 km/h in 2.7 seconds, with a top-speed “exceeding” 400 km/h. The engine, developed by RUF, is paired to a seven-speed double-clutch gearbox.

The Fenyr SuperSport is claimed to be light, thanks to a full carbon-fibre body fashioned with “advanced aerodynamics engineering.” In addition to that, beneath that body lies a lightweight tubular aluminium chassis. That said, no official figures were provided to support this, as of yet.

Unlike the Lykan HyperSport, this wild wolf of a car will be not be limited to just seven units. Instead it will be capped at 25 units. While no official prices have been released, a Bloomberg report shows that it costs less than the extravagant USD$3.4 million (RM12.6 million) HyperSport. The Fenyr SuperSport is reportedly priced at USD$1.8 million (RM7.8 million).

Ralph R. Debbas, CEO of W Motors said, “the SuperSport was needed in the company to show that there is a continuity in the products.” The CEO said it was targeted at those who didn’t care about collecting cars or limited editions. The same target group who “couldn’t afford the Lykan” but wanted a car that looks as sexy as the Lykan and focused purely on performance instead of luxury.

Separately, the CEO states that the company is working on an “affordable” SUV which it targets to launch next year and hopes to exhibit at the 2016 Beijing Auto Show. “You’ll be surprised to see a much more affordable SUV with crazy-looking designs such as these cars but with a maximum price tag of USD$300,000” (RM1.3 million) Debbas disclosed.
