W Motors is the very first Middle Eastern manufacturer of Supercars. Having already achieved fame with one of the rarest exotic automobiles in the world, the $3.4 million Lykan Hypersport, they have just unveiled their second offering – and their first mass-produced – the Fenyr SuperSport.
W Motors Fenyr SuperSport
Faster and more powerful than its predecessor the Fenyr SuperSport, named after the most aggressive and vicious wolf in mythology, will also be more signficantly more affordable. Think of it as W Motors’ “starter car”. Limited to production of only 25 units per year as compared to The Lykan Hypersport’s 7, this carbon fiber masterpiece perfectly balances advanced aerodynamics engineering with aggressive aesthetic design.
The Fenyr Supersport was conceived by the W Motors internal design team, headed by design director Anthony Jannarelly. The vehicle, which was years in the works, was developed with W Motors’ illustrious partners Magna Steyr Italy and RUF Automotive of Germany.
All of this hard work and dedication came to fruition with the Fenyr SuperSport, a wild creature with a full carbon-fiber body and a tubular, lightweight aluminum chassis that reduces the weight to a mere 1,200kg.
The heart of this machine is a one-of-a-kind flat 6 cylinder 4.0L twin turbo, mid-rear engine engineered in Germany by the renowned RUF Automobile company (famous for modifying porsches).
To contribute to its performance, a 7-speed double clutch gearbox is in place aiming to take advantage of the 900 horsepower and 1,200 Newton-Metre torque.
The twin-turbo engine will enable the SuperSport to go from 0 – 62 mph “in less than 2.7 seconds” and reach a top speed exceeding 400 km/h (248 mph)
The new Fenyr SuperSport focuses purely on performance, power and speed. Limited to only 25 units per year, the carbon fiber masterpiece perfectly balances advanced aerodynamics engineering with the aggressive aesthetic design. The supercar has an aggressive front fascia with LED headlamps and massive air intakes, a ventilated hood, and protruding side skirts.
The Triptych Active Spoiler
The Fenyr SuperSport boasts an innovative active spoiler that is one of a kind. The Triptych Active Spoiler is composed of three separate moving flaps, the Fenyrs spoiler operates using a complex electro-mechanical system that guarantees the synchronous movement of all three surfaces.
The side panels deploy automatically at 80 km/h and the master panel deploys at 120 km/h, helping the car to keep the rear planted when driving at high speed before folding back seamlessly into the body.
No interior photos have been unveiled as of yet, but it is expected to have an interior similar in design to that of the Lykan Hypersport – only without the extreme luxe details of gold seat stitching, gem-encrusted headlights and holographic virtual reality display. Alacantra leather and carbon fiber inserts are likely to embellish what will be a state-of-the-art technological instrument panel.
The Fenyr SuperSport will be available in both a right and left wheel drive.
