In this episode of this popular series, there are many over-the-top action sequences, but the most talked about one is perhaps the scene where a car jumps between three skyscrapers!
The car used by Dominic Toretto (played by Vin Diesel) and Brian O’Conner (played by the late Paul Walker) for this scene is the W Motors Lykan Hypersport.
This is a very limited edition vehicle, with the Lebanese-company only planning on making seven examples of this US$3.4-million supercar.
The Lykan Hypersport features a 3.7L, twin-turbo, flat-six motor bought from RUF, which develops 770 hp, and 708 lb-ft of torque. The car is available with either a six-speed sequential gearbox, or a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Its makers claim a 0 to 100 km/h run in just 2.8 seconds, and a top speed of 385 km/h (for comparison, the fastest racers from this past weekends Indy 500 were running at 370 km/h).
Now, there is one on sale in Dubai (where else???).
This black example with a black and white interior seems to be a new unit, with no mileage showing. For more details, click this link to Alain Class Motors website.
