LykanHypersport: the new most expensive car in the world
Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is still the most expensive and fastest overall car in the world. But that might change very soon, with the premiere of the LykanHypersport, a brand new Lebanese-built super car that is set to debut at the Qatari Motor Show.

The LykanHypersport is being built by a Beirut-based company W Motors and it's expected to debut with a base price tag of $3.5 million - that's a full $1.1 million more than the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. In terms of performance, the Lykan will come with a 750 horsepower, twin turbo engine that will pull 737 pounds of torque. The Lykan is expected to be able to go from 0-60 MPH in 2.8 seconds.

By comparison, the Hennessey Venom GT can go from 0-60 in 2.7 seconds, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport can do it in just 2.5 seconds. The super car features diamond encrusted LED lights and 24 karat gold stitching on the leather interior. The dashboard features a state-of-the-art interactive 3D holographic display.

The car, first imagined by designer Ralph Debbas, who previously worked with Aston Martin, has taken six years to design.
