“The earth shook violently, trees were uprooted, mountains fell, and all binds snapped- Fenyr is free.” That’s the epic quote that W Motors chose to accompany their upcoming supercar, the Fenyr SuperSport, named after the giant wolf in Norse mythology who killed the god Odin, destroyed most of the world, and then ate the sun and the moon. That’s quite the legacy for a car to live up to. W partnered with RUF Automotive to develop the doom-bringing supercar, and it’s 4.0 litre twin-turbo flat six was designed exclusively for this car by the German manufacturer. The Fenyr has a honeycomb aluminium chassis and full carbon fibre bodywork for a feather-like 1200kg curb weight. That’s the same as an average BMW Mini, but this has 900 horsepower. Its styling is even angrier than its baby brother’s, showing W’s intention that this car lean towards outright performance in the speed vs luxury dichotomy. 0-60mph flies by in 2.7 seconds, and the Fenyr can reach a top speed of 249 mph or a nice round 400km/h. You might consider this to be W Motors’ budget entry: just seven Lykan HyperSports were built at a cost of $3.4m apiece whereas the company will built 25 Fenyrs, a comparative steal at $1.8m each.
