2016 W Motors Fenyr SuperSport
Fenyr gets its name from the son of Loki in Norse mythology, a ravenous wolf that will break free of its bonds during Ragnarok. As stated on their website
- The earth will shake violently
Trees will be uprooted, mountains will fall
And all binds will snap
Fenyr will be free.
That's a lot to live up to! With 900 hp and 885 lb-ft of torque from its RUF-sourced engine, it just might get there. The power is sent via 7 speed double clutch gearbox, and delivers performance numbers of 0-62 mph in under 2.7 seconds, and a top speed of over 249 mph.
The body is made from carbon fiber with a tubular aluminum chassis.
In contrast with their earlier Hypersport which was limited to 7 cars total, W Motors is planning to produce 25 Fenyrs a year. While details regarding price are lacking, those relatively high production numbers virtually necessitates a big step down from the earlier model's $3.4 million price tag. The Fenyr will likely lack the extensive use of precious stones seen in the Hypersport.
