The W Motors Fenyr Supersport is a hypercar by W Motors developed as a faster, more track-focused version of the W Motors Lykan HyperSport. It is named after Fenrir, a monstrous wolf in Norse mythology.

The W Motors Fenyr Supersport is the successor to the Lykan HyperSport, unveiled at the 2015 Dubai Motor Show. The development was a partnership between W Motors and Magna Steyr. Its shape is much similar to the Lykan, only having a more aggressive, track-like appearance.
Similar to the Lykan, the Fenyr uses the 4.0-liter (3,996 cc) twin-turbocharged flat-6 engine (also equipped with an independent intercooler) supplied by RUF, only more powerful at 900 hp (671 kW) and 885 ft·lb (1200 N·m) of torque. The Fenyr is equipped with a 7-speed Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) dual-clutch automatic transmission with paddle shifting. The car is built on a tubular aluminum chassis and carbon fiber bodywork and has the exhaust pipes positioned between the taillights. The car is rear-wheel-drive and weighs only 2646 lb (1200 kg), giving it a power-to-weight ratio of 750 hp per tonne or 2.94 lb/1.33 kg per hp.
The Fenyr uses unique lightweight forged aluminum wheels with front 8.5"×20" wheels and rear 12.5"×21" wheels. Front tires are 255/35 ZR20 and rear tires 335/30 ZR21.
The Fenyr uses a unique rear wing, titled the Triptych Active Spoiler. Composed of three separate moving flaps, the Fenyr's rear wing operates using a complex electro-mechanical system that guarantees the synchronous movement of all three surfaces. The side panels deploy automatically at 50 mph (80 km/h) and the master (main) panel deploys at 75 mph (120 km/h), helping the car to keep the rear planted when driving at high speed before folding back seamlessly into the body.
Expected to surpass its predecessor, the Fenyr Supersport is capable of a 0-60 mph time of 2.5 seconds as well as a high top speed exceeding 249 mph (400 km/h), which would make the Fenyr among one of the fastest production cars in the world by top speed.
Compared to the Lykan (which is expensive because of diamonds in its headlights), the Fenyr is much cheaper, at US$1.85 million. Due to the lower price, W Motors has planned to build only 25 units per year, more than the Lykan's 7 units.
A Research & Development-unlockable Class S car, the W Motors Fenyr Supersport has a starting rank of 1624 (shared with the McLaren MP4-31), a MAX rank of 1731 (+107), and a MAX+PRO rank of 1799 (PRO rank: +68). The car receives a Tuning Kit bonus of +25 rank points for the highest possible rank of 1824. Its main rivals are the McLaren P1™ GTR, Mosler Super GT, and TRION NEMESIS.
The W Motors Fenyr Supersport's acceleration to its maximum total speed at MAX+PRO occurs in 4.2 seconds, making it slower in acceleration than the Lykan HyperSport due to having a lower nitro stat. The Fenyr has a nitro stat identical to that of the Peugeot Onyx. The Fenyr, on the other hand, has a high total speed of 307.2 mph (494.7 km/h), which the game displays as 321 mph (517 km/h). The Fenyr also has its nitro efficiency rated at 7/13/17.
The biggest advantage the Fenyr has over similarly-ranked cars is its extreme handling – it has a high turning capacity due to its weight of just 2646 lb (1200 kg). When drifting, the Fenyr turns extremely sharply up to the point where the ground can be heard breaking most of the time. In fact, it has the sharpest drifting radius of any car in the game, as even with a high top speed stat of 279 mph (449 km/h), it can still drift very sharply through virtually all corners. This does not come without a problem, though, as sometimes, the Fenyr can drift through a corner too sharply.
The W Motors Fenyr Supersport is very useful if the player doesn't have a MAX+PRO TRION NEMESIS or Devel Sixteen Prototype, but has been superseded by later cars like the Arash AF10, McLaren Mercedes MP4-25, and Porsche 918 Spyder with Weissach Package.
While not the best car for Events, the Fenyr Supersport still performs well in events, although more likely to place in the top 800 due to the growing presence of the Aston Martin Vulcan and McLaren MP4-31. On short/handling-focused tracks, the Fenyr performs spectacularly well due to having the sharpest drifting radius of any car in the game.
In Multiplayer, the Fenyr, with its aforementioned performance traits, can be competitive, albeit not as competitive as the aforementioned TRION NEMESIS, McLaren Mercedes MP4-25, or Aston Martin Vulcan. It is still more competitive than the likes of the McLaren 675LT, McLaren P1™ GTR, and Ferrari 330 P4, though.
Perhaps the most overlooked niche of the Fenyr Supersport is its usability as a Credits-earning machine – its 14th Car Mastery Challenge, a Classic race in Rapido Park, a short track, can earn an average of 5,800 (with a VIP Level below Level 3) in an average race time of 50 seconds (with the car at MAX+PRO). Its Season 9 race, set in Highland View, a short track, can also earn an average of 5,650 (with a VIP Level below Level 3) in the same average race time of 50 seconds (with the car at MAX+PRO). While not better than the McLaren 675LT in this aspect, both cars still share the trait of being useful for farming Credits in both Season 9 and Mastery (Challenge 14 in the former's case and Challenge 15 in the latter's case).
Official Review Edit
The review from TheHawtDawg1 stated that the car can hit the Tokyo wall at 7.392 sec, the perf. nitro in 8.448 second (12 in nitro efficiency index), and a French G time at 55.617 seconds, makes it a great car, but not a king, and can be dominant at technical tracks.
When available for a limited time, the Fenyr Supersport costs 14,250. The Fenyr costs 3,464,150 or 19,110 to max out and 1,953,525 for Pro Kits. The cards required for this car are 23 of each Class S Parts card, 24 F6 Engine cards, 28 Mid-Tech cards, and 28 Advanced Tech cards.
The W Motors Fenyr Supersport's R&D event began on August 9, 2016 while a limited offer was available between October 11 and October 14, 2016 in conjunction with an owners only event with the Fenyr Supersport at the aforementioned price. The car was made available again for purchase for the second and last time on December 23, 2016 for a duration of 3 days. As with many other R&D, Championship, and EDD cars, the Fenyr Supersport was reinstated for the Car Blueprints Update. Assembly requires 20 Legendary-rarity W Motors Fenyr Supersport BP cards.
