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.
