Please Don’t Jump the Fenyr SuperSport Like ‘Fast and the Furious’

For the casual observer, at first glance, this is the car from Furious 7, the seventh installation of the seemingly never-ending, yet quite fun, Fast and the Furious franchise. It’s the car that Vin Diesel and the late Paul Walker drove and jumped through three buildings. You’d, however, be wrong. Though the W Motors Lykan Hypersport used for the film may share certain design characteristics, the Fenyr SuperSport is very much a brand-new supercar, and its laundry list of performance stats make it one of the fastest cars on the planet.

The Dubai-based W Motors is a relative newcomer to the world of supercars. In fact, the aforementioned Lykan Hypersport was its first offering, reaching production just two years ago. Only seven were ever built, and it’s easy to see why, as the Lykan Hypersport sported headlights that made use of 420 actual diamonds. Why? Because diamonds are way more dope than LEDs.

Now ready to release its second offering, W Motors wants the Fenyr SuperSport to be the more consumer-available supercar as production will increase to a grand total of 25 per year. How industrious.

The Fenyr SuperSport is powered by a 3.8-liter, twin-turbocharged, flat-six engine developed by the manic fiends at RUF Automobile GmbH, the German Porsche-tuning company responsible for some of the wildest Porsche creations. The flat-six puts down a barn-blazing 789 horsepower and 723 lb-ft of torque and rests rear-middle in the Anthony Jannarelly-designed carbon body.

According to the company, the Fenyr SuperSport will be able to hit a top speed of 245 mph. You should be able to get to 62 mph by in just 2.7 seconds, while 124 mph comes just 6 seconds after. If that sounds eyes-hitting-the-back-of-your-skull-fast, you’d be right. Though the group is barely out of its teething years, the production-ready cars, and the engineering work inside of them, was completed by Magna Steyr, the same company that has been responsible for the Mercedes-Benz G-Class since its inception nearly 50 years ago, helped Aston Martin develop the Rapide, and builds both Jaguar’s E-Pace SUV and I-Pace fully electric crossover. With that resume, this car is sure to boogie.

Inside, customers will be cosseted in special W Motors carbon fiber shell seats, while the rest of the car will be able to be customized to your heart’s desire as customers will sit down with an individual W Motors’ Customization Consultant. Well, you’ll be able to until your bank account runs into an overdraft situation — and that’s certainly a possibility with a starting price of $1.5 million dollars. The car will make its production debut at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed and will be one of the many supercars that run the historic hill climb.

The 2025 Jeep Gladiator 4xe Hybrid: What we know so far
Jeep Gladiator at Retro Classics 2022

Look out, four-wheel-drive aficionados. 2025 is expected to be a significant year for Jeep. The new CEO, Antonio Filosa, spoke out recently and discussed Jeep's EV plans for the following year and the Jeep Gladiator 4xe Hybrid. 

You might have guessed it, but one way the brand is looking to increase profits is by releasing a new 2025 Gladiator 4xe Hybrid. Its plug-in hybrid powertrain may give this model an advantage over its competitors, such as the GMC Canyon and Toyota Tacoma.

Driving the Rolls Royce Black Badge Ghost: It packs a V12, but sounds like an EV
A glance at the Rolls Royce Black Badge Ghost
Rolls Royce Ghost Black Badge Front

For those of us who aren’t wildly successful, it’s not every day you get to drive around in a Rolls Royce. However, I’ve been lucky enough to hop into the front and back of a Ghost on several occasions. My most recent jaunt involved a Ghost Black Badge edition -- which involves a lot of cosmetic touches and a small boost in horsepower.

The Rolls Royce Black Badge Ghost also contains what, for me, is one of the most impressive features of a Rolls Royce. Under the hood is a substantial 6.7 liter V-12. The sort of thing that could probably roar loud enough to make windows shake half a mile away. It’s essentially an upmarket truck engine. But if you press the start button and hit the accelerator pedal, you can’t really hear it. Rolls prides itself in stuffing an incredible amount of soundproofing into its engine bay. The engine in the Black Badge is very slightly larger and a touch more powerful than the one you’ll find in a Silver Badge Ghost, but the difference isn’t huge enough to justify the choice on its own. To be honest, it’s the styling elements that are the main selling points of this premium trim.

The top 7 JDM cars of the 1990s
Which JDM car from the 1990s is your favorite?
Skyline

Back in the 1990s, long before the era of EVs and hybrid vehicles, the most technologically advanced cars you could buy all came from Japan.
However, the term "JDM car" can be somewhat misleading at times. While initially, it literally meant a car available for the Japanese domestic market, many enthusiasts have morphed its translation into simply a reference to a car that was built by a Japanese company with no regard for the actual market in which it was sold. So, we decided to split the difference and offer up the best seven cars of Japanese descent. With one lone exception, all of these cars were available in both Japan and the United States at one time or another.
It should also be noted that during the 1990s, Japanese automakers had an unspoken handshake deal that sports cars had to have a power cap of 276 hp. Of course, all the companies participated and quoted power peaks that mysteriously all seemed to touch that limit but never exceed it. Yet many of those same cars magically made gobs more power once they made it to our shores with little or no changes to their engines. Read on for the full list!
