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.

  1. Yeah right ! Two ‘ new ‘ models ! So WTH are the ‘ old ‘ models ? Figments of a Desert induced Delusion ? And what are they gonna call the ‘ new ‘ models once released . The Bombed Out in Beirut Special ? And where are they gonna manufacture it ? Same place all the Suicide Belts are manufactured ?

    Simply another round of Vapor Ware Pretentious BS making its way to the legitimate sites …. unfortunately

    @The_Devil – Too funny and + 1 . I’ll guess slower

    PS ; To head off any false accusations of prejudice etc towards myself it is sad and unfortunately true that Beirut has in fact been hijacked by the extreme element for the last two decades , with many of its fine and good people under constant siege by said Extreme Element . Making any project such as this all but impossible.

  2. That’s a great idea- too bad the current state of the world might not support that much extravagance

    @GuitarSlinger- I’ve been to Beirut on several occasion over the last couple of decades and I have to say your description of that city is by far the most condensed piece of BS, stereotyping and fasle claims I’ve read in quite a while

  3. @GuitarSlinger- I did not hear you mention anything about the car, the design, the performance, the planning… I guess you’re just another hater of Lebanon and thats a shame considering the lack of knowledge and education you have perhaps..

    The figures of this car are astonishing and make the best car makers in the world check twice into their production line…

    The again how can I be arguing this with a person rating a car by being faster or slower…sounds like an 8 year old discussing car on his wall photo… So if you cant buy something like that enjoy checking them out and dont hate on the people who can actually afford them because they’re more successful

    Finally, i can tell that it is YOU that is the round of Vapor Ware Pretentious BS making your way to the legitimate sites

    TOO BAD SON

    Your fail is EPIC to all car connaisseurs
