To kick off the Monterey Car Week, the Fenyr SuperSport participated in the Fuel Run on Wednesday 22nd August, joining W Motors’ first model launched, the famous Lykan HyperSport, to make up a convoy of 100 exotic and awe-inspiring supercars on an epic Californian road drive from Malibu to Monterey.

Friday 24th saw W Motors sponsor and participate in one of the most revered happenings in the line-up, The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering. Recognized as one of the world’s premium motorsports events, visitors were offered an up-close-and-personal opportunity to admire the Fenyr SuperSport, along with other extraordinary rare automobiles.

Both the Fenyr SuperSport and the Lykan HyperSport were showcased on Saturday 25th at Exotics on Cannery Row, a carefully crafted supercar gathering where members of the public can enjoy a wealth of cars on display, as well as other auto-related activities on one of the most popular destinations on California’s central coast.

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.

“The Earth will shake violently, trees will be uprooted, mountains will fall, and all binds will snap – Fenyr will be free”  (adapted from Prose Edda, 1220)
