Before you try and find a skyscraper to launch “Arabia’s first supercar” from, as Vin Diesel and Paul Walker did in the film Furious 7, consider it’s $3.4-million price tag and amazing performance. After all, even a car of this value cannot be expected to survive such a thrashing. However, take it to the graywacke aggregate surface of Yas Marina, and you will be astounded by its ability to destroy the competition. This bespoke chassis with a 780-horsepower Ruf twin-turbo 3.8-liter flat six pushing it around is formidable, to say the least. If dressing to impress is of higher value, just gander at the titanium blades within the headlights that are encrusted with diamonds and jewels. Either way, the Lykan HyperSport was created to make an impression like no other.
— Official description [1]

The 2016 W Motors Lykan HyperSport - abbreviated as Lykan HyperSport - is a RWD hypercar featured in the Polo Red Car Pack for Forza Motorsport 6 and as standard in all subsequent main series titles.

In Forza Horizon 3, it also appeared as a reward in the By The Light Of The Moon Forzathon event in July 2017.

It also appeared in Forza Motorsport 7 as a reward from the November Bounty Hunter Rivals event for those who beat Dan Greenawalt's final time.

Synopsis

Named after the lycanthrope, also known as a werewolf, the Lykan is an extremely limited production hypercar, as only seven units of the Lykan were produced, especially due to the car's astronomical price of US$3.4 million, explained by the diamonds installed in the headlights and taillights. The LED headlights are created from a titanium blade encrusted with diamonds, while the taillights are made of sapphires.

In late 2015, the Lykan HyperSport's successor, the Fenyr SuperSport, was unveiled at the 2015 Dubai Motor Show, with its full reveal on November 29, 2017.

The Lykan is powered by a 3.7 L (3,746 cc) twin-turbocharged flat-6 engine from RUF's CTR3 supercar, mid-mounted and fully catalyzed with a stainless steel exhaust system with active bypass valves. The maximum power of the engine is 780 hp (582 kW) at 7,100 rpm and torque 708 ft·lb (960 N·m) at 4,000 rpm. With a weight of 3042 lb (1380 kg), the car has a power-to-weight ratio of 565 hp (421 kW) per tonne.

The Lykan has two choices for its transmission: a six-speed sequential gear manual, and a seven-speed Porsche-sourced PDK dual-clutch automatic (the model depicted in the games feature the six-speed manual). The transmission is transversely rear mounted and uses a limited slip differential. Brakes consist of 6-piston aluminum mono-bloc ventilated calipers with cross-drilled carbon ceramic composite discs. Brake discs are 15" (380 mm) in diameter and 1.3" (34 mm) thick. The car is equipped with the Bosch ABS 8.0 system along with traction control.

Wheels are lightweight forged aluminum wheels, with the front wheels being 8.5"x19" and rear wheels being 12.5"x20". Front tires are 255/35 ZR19 and rear tires 335/30 ZR20. The Lykan features unique swan doors hinged at the rear, thus making suicide-swan doors. Diamonds are installed in the headlights and taillights, with the LED headlights crafted from a titanium blade encrusted with diamonds and the taillights being composed of sapphires.

Performance

The Lykan HyperSport is capable of 0 - 60 mph (97 km/h) in 2.8 seconds, 0 - 100 mph (161 km/h) in 5.1 seconds, and a top speed of only 233 mph (375 km/h), which is lower than the claimed top speed of 240 mph (386 km/h) due to the tight gear ratios, although this is solved under homologation rules.

The Lykan HyperSport features decent grip around the corners, although in the Forza Horizon series, it has a handling disadvantage compared to most of the hypercars in the game.
