The Lykan Hypersport is a Lebanese limited production hypercar by W Motors, a United Arab Emirates-based company, founded in 2012 in Lebanon with the collaboration of Lebanese, French and Italian engineers. It is the first Middle Eastern supercar.
The Lykan HyperSport is powered by a 3.7 L (3,746 cc) twin-turbocharged flat-six engine developed by RUF, producing 780 hp (582 kW) and 708 ft·lb (960 N·m) of torque. The car is claimed to have a top speed of 245 mph (395 km/h) and accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in 2.8 seconds. In June 2015, the Abu Dhabi police force purchased a Lykan HyperSport.
At US$3.4 million, the Lykan HyperSport is the third most expensive production modern car in the world, behind the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster (US$4.6 mil) and Maybach Excelero (US$8 mil). The Lykan HyperSport is also the first car to feature diamonds and jewels in its headlights, with 420 15-carat diamonds in titanium LED blades, although buyers have a selection of rubies, diamonds, yellow diamonds, and sapphires to be integrated into the vehicle's headlights at purchase based on the color choice. The car also utilizes a holographic display system on the center console with interactive motion features, as well as gold stitching on the seats.
The pre-production model made its debut in the 2013 Qatar Motor Show. W Motors limited its production to only 7 units.
In late 2015, the Lykan's successor, the W Motors Fenyr SuperSport, was revealed at the 2015 Dubai Motor Show.
The W Motors Lykan HyperSport appears as a low Class S car with the following rank statistics:
- Starting rank: 3,013 ( 40
- rank: 3,168
- rank: 3,350 ( 13)
- rank: 3,527 ( 16)
- rank: 3,803 ( 25)
- rank: 4,083 ( 39)
The Lykan features a high top speed for Class S, as well as mediocre acceleration and handling. However, its drifting radius is one of the best (if not the best) in the game, allowing it to get around sharp corners easily. Its main weakness is its poor nitro efficiency.
The Lykan can perform very well on a variety of tracks, but will require a lot of skill to drive well. Nitro management is key. Because of this, it was used in all of the ESL Mobile Open Seasons.

As of the Fifteenth Anniversary Update, the W Motors Lykan HyperSport is now a low Class A vehicle.
The W Motors Lykan HyperSport can be described as an excellent all-rounder, complete with superb acceleration, amazing nitro power and nitro efficiency (6/12/16), responsive and grippy handling and drifting, and decent top speed. With these stats combined, the Lykan is capable of beating the Mercedes-Benz Silver Lightning, Lamborghini Estoque, Koenigsegg Agera R, and SSC Tuatara and many other cars, with the latter on most tracks. It has a maximum total speed of 287.4 mph/462.9 km/h.
When compared to the Holden Coupe 60, Ferrari GTC4Lusso, and Mercedes-AMG GT3, all three cars have a slightly higher total speed than the Lykan, but the Lykan is still capable of challenging them due to its better overall performance — both the Holden and AMG GT3 suffer from poor nitro efficiency, the Holden also has slightly worse acceleration, the AMG GT3's raw top speed is lower, and the GTC4Lusso has a wide drifting radius. In addition, the McLaren MP4/8's much superior acceleration, nitro efficiency, and handling give it a strong advantage against the Lykan HyperSport on any track except Tokyo, due to the MP4/8's lower total speed of 278.6 mph/448.7 km/h. All of these cars are inferior to the BMW M2 Special Edition and Mazda RX-8 Special Edition.
The W Motors Lykan HyperSport is widely considered to be one of the best early Class S cars due to its great all-around performance and cheap upgrade costs. In comparison, its main rival, the SSC Tuatara, has a total buying and MAX cost of 2,965,000 (750,000+2,215,000) for extremely similar performance. The Lykan has the additional benefit as a Credits grinder with its Mastery Challenge 15 awarding 5,950 in around 49 seconds on Dubai. A fully upgraded Lykan is also a good choice for multiplayer matches if handled correctly, but is not the best Multiplayer car. Users of this car should especially be careful of doing ranked races due to the presence of the Apollo Intensa Emozione, Rezvani Beast Alpha, 2018 McLaren X2, and Arrinera Hussarya GT. As of the Fast Lane Update, the 15th Mastery Challenge is no longer usable for grinding credits, thus removing a significant niche of the Lykan.
Unusually, the W Motors Lykan HyperSport has two exclusive races in Career Mode: in Season 4, a Classic race in Dragon's Den; and in Season 8, a Classic race in The Great Wall, the latter of which is infamous for its drift distance requirement of 8,000 meters/yards as a Bonus Star.
As of the Fifteenth Anniversary Update, the Lykan costs 10,000 to purchase (previously 3,575, 3,800, and 550,000).
