Lykan Hypersport added to Abu Dhabi Police fleet
The Lykan Hypersport supercar which is manufactured by W Motors finds it`s way into the Abu Dhabi Police Fleet. Can you believe it?
If you are a fugitive on the run in Abu Dhabi, pray to whichever God you believe in that you never get caught up in a car chase with the Abu Dhabi Police. If the Lamborghini Aventador, or the Ferrari or the G63 can’t catch you, the Lycan Hypersport surely will. And if you do get caught, you might be riding in the back seat of the Rolls Royce Phantom. Reason being, none of the other supercars have back seats.
In a strong move to promote tourism in Abu Dhabi, the country has taken a number of steps. One of them is commissioning supercars and luxury cars into the police car fleet. This is a subtle way to promote tourism, and also make patrolling cars for on-duty police officers more fun! (Where do I sign up for that job?)
The latest inductee into the fleet is the Lykan Hypersport. Yes, it’s the same car Vin diesel flew off 3 towers in the recent Fast and Furious movie. The car is manufactured in the Middle East, and there will only be seven of them made. This also happens to be one of the most expensive cars in the world, costing a whooping $3.2 million. Now it is unsure if W Motors has given the Police department the car as a loan or for promotional purposes, but I am sure the police officer assigned is not going to be calling in sick!
The car is extremely lightweight, and is propelled by a 3.8 liter specially tuned Porsche engine. This motor punches out 770 bhp and about 737 Nm of torque. That’s enough to scare the biggest criminals in the world. It goes from 0-100 in under 3 seconds and has a top speed of 386 kmph.
They say you can run, but you can’t hide. The Abu Dhabi police are fully implementing that age-old saying!
