A new player in the supercar market recently emerged in Lebenon’s capital, Beirut. W Motors recently announced a brace of new supercars, the first supercar to be designed and built by an Arab nation. The cars are named the Hyper-sport and the Super-sport. They were announced last Wednesday at the Sursock Palace, Beirut in front of a select number of Politicians, Socialites and high ranking industry leaders.
The project has the support of contract manufacturers Magna Steyr Torino, RUF Automobile who need no introduction and Studiotorino, a young design studio in Rivoli. W Motors hopes to introduce the Hyper-car first. It’s a limited production model with only five being offered for sale.
Details available at the moment are that it will have signature diamond incrusted LED lights and a holographic display. Each customer will be able to choose a precious stone to have fitted to the interior of the car. The car will feature a carbon fiber frame, a gold plated hood and gold or platinum keys. The engine is touted to be a mid mounted, twin-turbocharged, six-cylinder engine producing around 750hp. A 0-100km/h time of 2.8 seconds will be the project aim alongside a 385km/h (239mph) top speed.
Details on the Super-sport will also be released at a later date. The Hyper-car will be unveiled in December at an event in Dubai. This will be followed by the public launch at the Qatar Motor Show in January 2013. Let us know what you think in the comments box below.
