Dubai’s W Motors chisels out another supercar: The Fenyr Supersport

W Motors, the Middle Eastern boutique carmaker that recently put its $3.4 million Lykan Hypersport supercar on sale, is back with something new. Called the Fenyr Supersport, it was unveiled at the 2015 Dubai Motor Show.

Like its predecessor, the Fenyr Supersport features aggressively styled bodywork. It looks like a Transformer that’s in the midst of transforming. And W Motors has some impressive performance claims to go along with the extroverted styling. It says the Fenyr Supersport will do 0 to 62 mph in less than 2.7 seconds, and top 248 mph.

To help achieve those numbers, it packs a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six from legendary Porsche tuner Ruf. The engine will make at least 900 horsepower in production form, and will be bolted to a lightweight tubular aluminum chassis. The bodywork, meanwhile, is made from carbon fiber. Power from the mid-mounted engine is sent to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

The word “exotic” gets tossed around a lot, but if the Fenyr Supersport can live up to W Motors’ hype, it will be in a rarefied class of performance cars like the Bugatti Veyron. W Motors also built a track-only, alternative-fuel version of the Lykan called the Supersport HSF, and could create quite a beast if it decides to go the same route with the Fenyr. That is, as long as the company doesn’t disappear, which is still a possibility given its small-scale status.

Production will be limited to just 25 units, and W Motors hasn’t revealed the price. Considering that the Lykan Hypersport sold for $3.4 million with less power (although W Motors claimed similar performance figures), the Fenyr Supersport could end up costing even more. So even if it doesn’t turn out to be the outright fastest car in production, W Motors’ latest creation could be the most expensive.

While they may not dominate the market just yet, electric vehicles have become pretty massive in the past few years, with many people seeing them as the perfect alternative to traditional combustion engines. Of course, because EVs aren't as widespread, that means that there aren't always a ton of charging stations around, and sometimes those have inoperative or full chargers, leading to quite a few issues down the road. Luckily, you can get some excellent car chargers at home, which is why we've collected our favorite car charger deals for you below to save you trouble.

If you’re only going to sell one car, you’d better make it count.

The Lucid Air electric car finally took flight in 2020 after years in financial limbo. While Lucid plans to launch an SUV called the Gravity and a line of smaller, more mainstream models, the Air remains Lucid’s sole product nearly four years after its launch. The Air has evolved in that time, adding multiple configurations that allow this one car to fill several niches.

With 1,800 horsepower, Bugatti’s Tourbillon brings plug-ins past the Prius
The Bugatti Tourbillon is a plug-in hybrid.

Plug-in hybrid technology has reached the automotive industry’s upper echelon. Bugatti has unveiled the Tourbillon, the long-awaited successor to the Chiron, with a gasoline-electric drivetrain rated at 1,800 horsepower, 3D-printed parts in the suspension, and an unusual sound system that has no speakers.

Bugatti developed the Tourbillon on a blank slate. The big coupe’s proportions are relatively close to the Chiron’s because the two cars need to fulfill a similar mission: cruise safely and comfortably at jaw-dropping speeds. Bugatti hints that hitting 250-plus-mph is well within the Tourbillon’s scope of capabilities. For context, the Chiron set a speed record and became the first car to break the 300-mph barrier when it reached 304 mph in 2019, so the brand knows a thing or two about speed.
