Middle East is the biggest market for luxury and high performance cars. What the Arab world is missing is a homegrown hypercar. That will soon change as a new company called W Motors has announced plans to build two models: the Hyper-sport and the Super-sport.
The Hyper-sport will be limited to 5 cars worldwide and according to the company will be the most luxurious sports car in the world with “never seen before technologies” like fully functional holographic display with interactive motion and diamond cluster LED lights.
W Motors has partnered with an Italian design house Studiotorino, Austrian manufacturer Magna Steyr and German carbuilder RUF.
If all goes as planned, the Hyper-sport will see its world debut at the Dubai Auto Show in December.
