Lykan Hypersport added as another feather to the Abu Dhabi police patrol Fleet
To enhance patrolling abilities of Police Force, Directorate of Traffic and Patrols in Abu Dhabi have been issued with this supercar – a 245 mph W Motors Lykan HyperSport. The Hypersport was last seen by the common man as a stunt car driven by actor Vin Diesel in the recently featured Fast and Furious series. This car reportedly is the third most expensive car in the world after Lamborghini Veneo & one-off Maybach Exelero. It costs around $3.4 million or 2.16 million pounds and is one of the rarest supercar available in market, as only 7 examples have ever been manufactured so far.So one bought by the Abu Dhabi Police is one of those seven.
Under the hood of the Lykan Hypersport is a twin turbo flat-six 3.7-litre engine from the Ruf CTR3, producing 552 kW (740 bhp or 751 PS) and 960 Nm (708 lb·ft) of torque. The car is claimed to have a top speed of 395 km/h (245 mph) and accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in just 2.8 seconds.
This supercar is a now part of ever-impressive fleet of the Abu Dhabi Police Patrol Unit which includes recently added Lexus RCF, equipped with computers and cameras, a McLaren MP4-12C, Aston Martin One-77, Audi R8, Bugatti Veyron, Mercedes SLS, BMW M6, Lamborghini Aventador, Ferrari FF, and a Bentley Continental GT. Well what else does a patrol team require.
With cars like the Lykan Hypersport joining the blue side of the line, guess those looking to outrun the law now will have to retune their Lamborghinis or perhaps the odd Koenigsegg One.
However, like many others high-speed, powerful and expensive supercars available in the UAE’s police departments, this Lykan will just be a tourist attraction and probably won’t see any high-speed action even if it’s capable of 395 km/h (245 Mph). Well that doesn’t make it less cool, though.
