Default W Motor's Lykan : The Middle-East's 1st Supercar

It's always encouraging to see an Entrepreneur do the impossible and when it's someone you know, it gives you even greater courage to be proud and strive harder to achieve your dreams.

Sari Elkhalil is a friend that I met during my college days in Boston. This is his latest project

Looks like a blend of a Lambo and the LFA - killer.

It's such a fantastic feeling when someone you know make it to the news... and that too in something that you've always loved!

Good luck to your friend and W Motors - hope they make it big!

Default First Arabian HyperCar

First super car from Middle east, called Lykan Hypersport

The Hypersport will boast a twin-turbo flat-six generating about 750 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque. The mid-mounted engine will propel the Arab supercar to 60 miles per hour in a blistering 2.7 seconds as it heads towards a top speed of 245 mph. W Motors has reportedly already taken over 100 orders for the two-seater that will initially be assembled in Italy
