The W Motors Fenyr Supersport has been revealed at the Dubai motor show. The 900bhp hypercar is capable of reaching a top speed in excess of 248mph and accelerating from 0-62mph in "less than 2.7sec".
The claimed performance figures are in part achieved by the model's lightweight construction and a custom-made mid-mounted twin-turbo 4.0-litre flat six engine developed by RUF.
The manufacturer’s ‘"from 900bhp and 885lb ft" claim for the outputs in standard form suggest that a more powerful variant may even be on the cards. This would follow the progression of the opulent £2.25million Lykan, with a more extreme variant appearing later in the production cycle.
The Fenyr’s lightweight approach comprises a carbonfibre body and tubular aluminium chassis and will likely be put together in W Motors’ Dubai factory. The facility is due to begin production of W Motors’ cars in January, although the small Arab car maker collaborated with Magna Steyr for the construction of the hypercar.
W Motors’ second hypercar will be built alongside two £100,000-plus SUV models, which are currently in development and due to be released in 2017. One SUV will focus on off-road ability, while the other is being designed with the aim of claiming the title of world’s fastest SUV, in competition with the Bentley Bentayga and Lamborghini Urus.
