Wealthy Arab’s love their supercars, probably more so than any other wealthy group of people anywhere else in the world. With the streets of their major urban centers flooded with foreign-made exotics of all stripes, one Lebanese company figured it was about high time the locals got their hands dirty at building their own supercars, ones that can rival the world’s best.
At a press event held in Beirut, Lebanon, W Motors announced its plan to produce two high-performance models, the Hyper-Sport and the Super-sport. When completed, they will be the Arab region’s first-ever locally-designed performance machines.
The Lebanese company says the two models will be the most exclusive, luxurious and technologically advanced hyper-cars in the world, ones that will introduce never-before-seen technologies inside and out. Some noteworthy highlights will be diamond-crusted LED taillamps and a fully-functional holographic display.
Heading the project is Ralph R Debbas, a graduate from Coventry University School of Art and Design with a major in Automotive Design. He has received numerous awards for concepts he worked on in Europe. W Motors will be working with Austrian manufacturer Magna Steyr and German carbuilder RUF to develop the Hyper-Sport and Super-sport.
Details on the Hyper-Sport, of which only five units will be built, will be released when the car make its official debut in Dubai this December.
