W Motors is an automobile company from Dubai, one of the most popular cities in Middle East. They were initially established in Lebanon in 2012 by car enthusiast and aficionado, Ralph R. Debbas. W Motors primarily specialize on manufacturing sports cars and is a pioneer in the Middle East.
It took seven years for the brand to fully develop with the help of various European car manufacturers including Magna Steyr, RUF Automobile, StudioTorino, and Carrozzeria Viotti. Most of the US$13 million initial investment came from the FFA Private Bank of Lebanon who is also one of its stakeholders.
W Motors launched their first prototype in the first quarter of 2013, the Lykan HyperSport. It was released at the Qatar International Motor Show. After a few months, the company decided to transfer their headquarters to Dubai.
Interest on the new prototype grew outrageously, even more so when Universal Studios, an American film production company, ordered ten units of the Lykan HyperSport and was used on the production of the famous movie franchise, Furious 7.
It is said that the HyperSport is the most expensive car in the movie let alone that the units featured on the movie did not have the sleek carbon fiber chassis or the diamond accents that the original HyperSport has.
The hype grew even more when the HyperSport went officially on sale in December 2014 with only seven units available to the public. It was priced at US$3.4 million and was all manufactured in W Motors’ plant in Italy.

W Motors is said to debut a sedan model and two SUV models in 2016. One of the latter is rumored to have a sports-car-like speed while the other is an off-road luxury car. The company is also targeting to sell at least 100 units of the rumored models.
