UAE hypercar Fenyr SuperSport hits the roads for the first time – in pictures 

The 400kph, 800hp monster, the latest model from Dubai-based W Motors, made its debut this weekend at Goodwood Festival of Speed

UAE hypercar the Fenyr SuperSport has made its debut on the road at this weekend's Goodwood Festival of Speed in England.

The latest model from the Dubai-based W Motors was unveiled in production form at last year's Dubai International Motor Show – but until now, the 400kph, 800hp monster hadn't been seen in motion in public.

The hypercar is powered by a twin-turbo, 3.8-litre flat-six engine that propels it from 0 to 100kph in a dizzying 2.8 seconds.

The Fenyr is the follow-up to the celebrated Lykan HyperSport, which has turned heads in the past few years thanks to its diamond-encrusted headlights and a holographic infotainment display, as well as a US$3 million (Dh11m) price tag and a guest appearance in the Fast & Furious movie franchise.

As W Motors' chairman/chief executive Ralph Debbas told The National last year, the Fenyr is expected to be followed by a new supercar, with plans to bring the company's production to a new factory in Jebel Ali before the end of the decade.
