The Lykan Hypersport is a Lebanese limited production hypercar by W Motors, a United Arab Emirates-based company, founded in 2012 in Lebanon with the collaboration of Lebanese, French and Italian engineers. It is the first Middle Eastern supercar.
The Lykan HyperSport is powered by a 3.7-liter (3746cc) twin-turbocharged flat-six engine developed by RUF, producing 780 hp (791 PS; 582 kW) and 708 ft·lb (960 Nm) of torque. The car is claimed to have a top speed of 245 mph (395 km/h) and accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in 2.8 seconds. In June 2015, the Abu Dhabi police force purchased a Lykan HyperSport.
At US$3.4 million, the Lykan HyperSport is the third most expensive car in the world, behind the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster (US$4.6 mil) and Maybach Excelero (US$8 mil). The Lykan HyperSport is also the first car to feature diamonds and jewels in its headlights, with 420 15-carat diamonds in titanium LED blades, although buyers have a selection of rubies, diamonds, yellow diamonds, and sapphires to be integrated into the vehicle's headlights at purchase based on the color choice. The car also utilizes a holographic display system on the center console with interactive motion features, as well as gold stitching on the seats.
The pre-production model made its debut in the 2013 Qatar Motor Show. W Motors limited its production to only 7 units.
In late 2015, the Lykan's successor, the W Motors Fenyr Supersport, was revealed at the 2015 Dubai Motor Show.
The W Motors Lykan HyperSport was added in the Daily Bonus Update and is the first Class S car added to the game via time release.
As it currently stands, the Lykan is a low-mid-end Class S car, with a starting rank of 1518, a MAX rank of 1655, and a MAX+PRO rank of 1723. +33 rank points are added through Tuning Kits. The Lykan mainly rivals the Mercedes-AMG GT3, Mercedes-Benz Silver Lightning, Lamborghini Estoque, Holden Coupe 60, and SSC Tuatara.
The W Motors Lykan HyperSport can be described as an excellent all-rounder, complete with superb acceleration, amazing nitro power and efficiency (6/12/16), responsive and grippy handling and drifting, and decent top speed. With these stats combined, the Lykan is capable of beating the Mercedes-Benz Silver Lightning, Lamborghini Estoque, Koenigsegg Agera R, and SSC Tuatara, with the latter on most tracks. When compared to the Holden Coupe 60 and Mercedes-AMG GT3, though, both cars have a slightly higher total speed than the Lykan, which has the only disadvantage of having a speed multipler of 91.46%, but the Lykan is still capable of challenging them due to its superb all-round stats (the AMG GT3's nitro efficiency and top speed are low, while the Holden Coupe 60's acceleration is somewhat slower but its nitro efficiency is very low).
The W Motors Lykan HyperSport costs 550,000 to buy, 417,500 to Max, and 1,057,013 for Pro Kits. The Lykan is widely considered to be one of the best early Class S cars, owing to its all round decent performance and cheap upgrade costs. In comparison, its main rival, the SSC Tuatara, has a total buying and Max cost of 3,278,000 (950,000+2,328,000) for extremely similar performance. The Lykan has the additional benefit as a Credits grinder with its Mastery Challenge 15 awarding 5,950 in around 49 seconds on Dubai. This is also a good choice for multiplayer matches, if handled correctly.
The Lykan HyperSport appears in Asphalt Overdrive as a Turf 5 car.
The W Motors Lykan HyperSport appears in Asphalt Nitro as a Class S car, with its performance stats exactly identical to its Asphalt 8: Airborne rendition. The Lykan is now only available by reaching VIP Level 4 and buying the car with real money.
