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.
All three models are understood to be part of CEO of W Motors Ralph Debbas’s ambitious plans for the company to produce 200 units annually. Debbas quoted a starting point of 35 cars per year upon the opening of the new Dubai-based plant.
W Motors has released no word yet on pricing for the Fenyr, although production is capped at 25 units per year.
