Pairing a unique body and chassis with a turbocharged 3.7-liter flat six-cylinder engine, the Lykan Hypersport is an unusual specimen in the world of boutique supercars. Here, we can see and hear the Hypersport as it starts, revs, and drives around during its appearance at last week's 2014 Top Marques Monaco.
The Lykan Hypersport, built by W Motors, has already been spotted on the track, where we got some hint of the car's sound, but only in brief snippets with a backing track. Here, the sound is captured raw and unfiltered, uninterrupted by editing or artistry. It sounds good.
In fact, the Lykan Hypersport sounds a bit mean. But then it should, cranking 750 horsepower from its turbo engine and claiming 0-60 mph times of 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 245 mph.
This isn't the baddest Lykan, however; the Supersport is expected to follow the Hypersport, bringing with it more than 1,000 horsepower.
