The W Motors Lykan Hypersport costs $3.4 Million dollars (US), bumping the Bugatti Veyron Super Sports as the most expensive car in the world.

W-Motors debuted the car among many other exotics at this year’s Qatar Auto Show. Touted as the first Arabian supercar, the Lykan Hypersport features a mid-mounted twin-turbo flat-six engine which produces 750 hp and 737 lb-ft of torque, allowing it to hit 60 mph in 2.7 seconds, and reach a top speed of 245 mph.

The car’s astronomical price comes thanks to its mostly carbon fiber construction, as well as diamond, gold and platinum crusted interiors and body which are crafted in Italy. There are even diamonds in the lights, along with a 3D holographic display and high-tech dashboard. Austrian manufacturer Magna Steyr and German tuning company RUF contributed to the Lykan Hypersport.

“Qatar is a perfect place to launch it because it’s a country that loves what we’re doing,” W Motors co-founder Sari El Khalil told Doha News. Only seven models will be made, and the company is screening customers.

“We are choosing our customers carefully,” El Khalil said. “It’s the first Arab car, we want Arabs driving our car. We’ve gotten interest from India, we’ve gotten interest from Moscow, we’ve gotten interest from China.”

Customers will also get a special edition Cyrus Klepcys watch that is valued at over $200,000.
