By on October 12, 2015 in ArticlesCelebrity Cars

The W Motors Lykan Hypersport is a "movie star" supercar that ranks as the 3rd most expensive car in the world. This car is known for its starring role in the movie Furious 7, where it crashed through three skyscrapers in Dubai. Here is a closer look at this Amazing Car Of The Day: The Lykan Hypersport.

The Lykan Hypersport is a limited production sports car produced by W Motors that became the first supercar to be produced in the Middle East. Only seven of these cars have been produced and the first pre-production version was launched in 2013 at the International Dubai Motor Show.

The Hypersport is the first car to incorporate diamonds in its headlights. The front lights feature titanium LED blades with 420 diamonds. The buyers of the car can choose which rubies and diamonds will be embedded in the headlights, and can also choose a selection of the gems to be integrated into the vehicle. This Lebanese supercar also comes with scissor doors.

The Hypersport features a twin turbo flat-six 3.7 liter engine, capable of delivering 770 horsepower. It has a top speed of 245 miles per hour and can go from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.8 seconds. The Lykan Hypersport was featured in the game, Asphalt 8: Airborne as the highest class available. It was also featured in the PlayStation 4 game, Driveclub.

This two door coupe goes for an astounding $3.4 million! The Hypersport is the first car ever made by W Motors out of Beirut, Lebanon. The Abu Dhabi Police have also helped this supercar make headlines, by purchasing one for their outrageously expensive fleet of vehicles.

The Lykan Hypersport surely had movie goers in awe during the movie Furious 7, when it drove through the windows of a skyscraper at Abu Dhabi's Etihad Towers into another building before falling 45 floors to the ground. Although the scene was certainly just a special effect, a study did find that this feat is theoretically possible. After the filming of the movie the car was sent back to Dubai to be kept at W Motors, where it is often driven by company chief executive Ralph Debbas.
