Insane Video for the 800 horsepower Fenyr on the track

It is no secret that W Motors makes the most beautiful and powerful cars, and what really sets it apart is its Emirati identity. Last spring, we got the opportunity to fully drive one of W Motors Cars “The Fenyr”. However, the test drive was a little bit limiting the full capacity of that wolf as it was performed on the streets of Dubai where speed limits are highly respected. We didn’t fully understand the power behind this machine until…

We were invited by W Motors during the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK to experience the VIP passenger ride and feel the true power of its Fenyr Super Sport on the Goodwood Hill Climb. The driver was a professional with several 24H Le Mans endurance titles. So how can we say no to such experience that will put us behind the wheels and feel firsthand the enormous power of this car?

We arrived at the super sports cars yard, overwhelmed by all the super and hyper cars there, one car stood out with its silky white color that was our ride. Wore the helmet and the right outfit and hopped in inside the Fenyr, as the engines roared and the checkered flag dropped announcing the start of the race; The Fenyr was first on the track which gave us an exhilarating experience as we rushed into the 0-100 KM/h under 2.8 sec you feel your soul leaving your body, to catch it up again as we reach the 200 KM/h in a blink of an eye. This wolf is capable of reaching a top speed of 400 km/h which honestly I don’t remember if we reached it or not as this experience was surreal.

The Fenyr proved once more that with its twin-turbo 6-cylinder flat mid-engine upgraded by RUF, the experts in Porsche engine tuning, can compete and sometimes exceed the 12-cylinder Super Cars. The Fenyr engine is a 3.8-liter capable of producing 800 horsepower and 980 Nm or torque and if you don’t know what these figures mean all you have to do is watch the video.

The line-up ended on Sunday 26th at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, the top-ranking collector car competition in the world, where the Fenyr SuperSport was displayed on the renowned Concept Lawn alongside some of the most exclusive limited series cars ever created.

Speaking of the state-side premiere, Ralph R. Debbas, Founder & CEO of W Motors stated, “We are proud to have been part of the historic Monterey Car Week for the third year in a row, and to finally launch the Fenyr SuperSport in its production trim in the US. The feedback we’ve had throughout has been phenomenal, and we look forward to continuing to enhance awareness of W Motors as the leading international manufacturer of high performance luxury sports cars.”

Strengthening its product line, as well as its global presence, W Motors recently announced the launch of the “Fenyr SuperSport Launch Edition”, limited to 10 units only and inspired by the Spirit of Wolf. The ten unique launch editions have been passionately created to showcase the Fenyr SuperSport in all its glory; each breathtaking car crafted in a unique colour combination and highlighting endless possibilities of creating one’s dream hypercar.

The Fenyr SuperSport: Spirit of the Wolf

Named after the most ferocious wolf in Norse mythology, the Fenyr SuperSport is not only distinguished by the unique W Motors DNA but also is a technical wonder developed in close collaboration with international leading technical partners, including Magna Steyr Italy – where a dedicated facility is assigned for the engineering, production and manufacturing of W Motors hypercars – and the German engine-manufacturer RUF Automobile, which supplies the engine for the ferocious beast.

Among the plethora of distinctive features, we can name the reverse-opening door system; the innovative active aerodynamics system; the full exterior body in carbon-fibre with extensive use of graphene composite, which transforms the Supercar into a lightweight and high-resistance machine. The custom-made RUF engine has been exclusively developed for the hypercar – a twin-turbo flat 6, mid-rear 3.8L engine capable of delivering 800HP, making it possible to reach 0-100 KM/H in just 2.8 seconds and a maximum top speed of 400 KM/H.
