The Lykan HyperSport is the car that propelled the middle-eastern company to international stardom when it took the centre stage as Dominic Toretto’s ride in an important scene in Universal’s Studios Fast & Furious 7. Only 7 units of this car are made and sold worldwide, which puts this car in an ultra-exclusive list. The Lykan HyperSport is valued at 3.4 million dollars, and one of the reasons behind this expensive price tag are the 440 diamonds that are placed in the headlights of this vehicle. In a recent video released by VW Motors, the Lykan HyperSport can be seen in its full glory, as it has now become a Patrol Vehicle for the Abu Dhabi Police. Have a look at the video here:
With only 7 cars in existence, the Lykan HyperSport is a specially handcrafted masterpiece that sports a full carbon-fibre body, a patented reverse dihedral door system, a jewel-encrusted key with diamond-lined headlights and an innovative holographic interactive display, for better visibility and convenient functionality. The name of this car has been derived from the word “Lycan”, which is an advanced species of Wolves in ancient mythology. It means that the Lycan (Lykan) can transform at any given time to show its true power and leadership, just like the Lykan HyperSport, which is an exceptional supercar/hypercar with an elegant yet agile look and will be able to transform at any given time into a beast.
In terms of technology, the Lykan Hypersport is a very advanced and sophisticated machine. The car is equipped with a holographic mid-air display with interactive motion, a Reverse opening door system and a fully hand-crafted carbon-fibre body. In terms of performance, the HyperSport gets a 3.8-litre, flat-six, twin-turbo engine which is capable of producing 780 HP at 7,100 rpm and 960 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. The mid-rear mounted engine is paired with a 6-speed manual sequential gearbox. The car can go from 0-100 kmph in just 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of around 395 kmph, which is more than enough to have a successful chase on the streets of Abu Dhabi. So, the next time you visit Abu Dhabi lookout for this 400 kmph monster, as it might be patrolling the streets or maybe in pursuit of another supercar.
