To get it out of the way up front, each W Motors Lykan Hypersport had an MSRP of $3.2 million. Now that you’ve done a double-take on that price, keep in mind that to order a Lotus Evija EV hypercar, you had to put down $2.1 million, and it’s only when you get into the rarified air of a completely customized, personalized, coachbuilt Rolls-Royce Ghost or a Bugatti Chiron PurSport that the prices start to even out.
The first thing that makes the Lykan so over the top is that from the outset, it was designed and planned to be just that: over the top. Much like how the original McLaren F1 was made out of the most exotic materials that existed in 1993, the Hypersport is made out of the most exotic and rare materials available in the 2010s.
Only seven Lykan Hypersports were made, and each one was sold for way over the $3.2 million MSRP. This is because, when you’re buying a car designed to be ostentatious and over-the-top, you don’t just buy it as it is. You customize it, personalize it, and make it your car and your car only.
