Billed as the first car to have diamonds in its headlights, the $3.4 million Lykan Hypersport is the third-most-expensive car of all time, behind the Lamborghini Veneno ($4.5M) and the Mayback Exelero ($8M). The blinged-out headlights are made from titanium LED blades adorned with 420 diamonds weighing 15 carats.
Discerning buyers also get to customize the car’s interior design with their choice of rubies, diamonds, yellow diamonds, emeralds or sapphires.
In addition to the gemstone finery, the limited-edition supercar packs some punch. It has a top speed of 240 mph and can accelerate from zero to 62 mph in 2.8 seconds. The two-year-old, Lebanon-based W Motors claims only seven will be made.
Each buyer of the Lykan Hypersport will get a very special gift-with-purchase valued at $100,000. It’s a Cyrus Klepcys W Motors special-edition watch, which was designed by famous Swiss watchmaker Jean-Francois Mojo. The luxurious watch has the designer’s fingerprint melted into the gold medallion on the back.
Even the car’s key is luxurious. It’s fabricated from carbon fiber, titanium and precious stones.
The pre-production Lykan HyperSport turned heads two weeks ago at the 2014 Top Marques Monaco car show. Journalists were impressed by its chiseled design, interactive holographic display system and bejeweled headlights.
The car made its debut at the International Dubai Motor Show in 2013 and has since been previewed in Abu Dhabi, Kuwait, Belgium and Spain.
W Motors is the first Arabian brand of supercars. Despite the extraordinary credentials of the Lykan Hypersport, the company already announced an even more impressive, stepped-up model, the Lykan Supersport.
