The Lykan features the world' s first holographic mid- air display with interactive motion control and it has 440 diamonds lined in the LED headlights. The car comes with an expensive price tag associated with it, nearly 3. 5 million dollars and the company claims that the high price of the car is because of the included options that include many things done for the first time.

The W Motors Lykan HyperSport is the first car in the world to have diamonds in its headlights so that alone should tell you why the price tag is very high. The Lykan HyperSport is powered by a flat 6 cylinder 3. 7 litre twin turbo mid rear engine which allows the car to develop 780 hp and 960 N⋅m of torque. This allows the car to go from 0 to 100 km/h in 2. 8 seconds with a maximum speed of 404 km/h (251 mph). To give you a clearer picture of the car, the car that was driven by Van Diesel in The Fast and the Furious 7 is the Lykan HyperSport and it was the expensive car that was destroyed in the Fast and Furious 7 as it was used to jump buildings in Abu Dhabi.
