Extraordinary Hypersport Car

A Lebanese automotive company, now beginning to enliven the sports car competition in the Middle East. Lykan Hypersport officially launched at the Qatar Motor Show 2013 by W Motors. This automotive exhibition held in Doha, Qatar was followed by 35 automotive companies. There are 26 new car models on display. Visitors on target to reach 12 thousand people.
