The World’s Most Overpriced Supercar: the Lykan Hypersport

Every supercar comes with a great story and grandeur. A supercar can’t just have impressive numbers. It needs to be a lot more than that. A supercar needs to be a sculpture on wheels. An engineering and art at its finest. It’s a completely different experience. The Lykan Hypersport, even with its ridiculous $3.4 million price tag, simply isn’t any of this. The Lykan Hypersport, run by a 3.8-liter twin-turbo flat-six engine by Porsche, boasts a hefty 770 bhp. This shoots the car from 0-60 in just 2.8 seconds. Even though this maybe certainly seem “impressive”, a Porsche 918 can provide you with similar performance for around $2 million less.


The interior and the exterior of The Lykan Hypersport is also somewhat substandard. For $3.4 million, the buyer should only expect exceptional and extraordinary. However, the Lykan Hypersport rather looks like any other car with a cheap body kit on. The Lykan Hypersport created by a Dubai based company, W Motors, simply lacks the heart and human touch of supercars like the Pagani Huayra or one of Koenigsegg’s. It is clear that W Motors simply created this car to maximize profit for their company. Unfortunately, the Lykan Hypersport is a car that was not created with car enthusiasts in mind. To us, it just seems like an unnecessary investment no matter how much money you have.

That being said, if you do have the $3.4 million dollars to shell out, and you for what ever reason really like this car because of its exclusivity and excessive luxury, then by all mean go buy it. It is still a very exotic looking car with very good performance; we just do not believe that is a great bargain for the price. Maybe their other model Fenyr Supersport is created differently, and hopefully the company will take a different path than they did with this one and offer a car that is that is indeed unique and exquisite.
