The Middle East is a land where the oil is rich, skyscrapers tall and the thirst for expensive cars is insatiable.
Don't belive us? Just check out this showroom. But they've never had a car of their own... until now. Actually, next week, where at the Qatar Motor Show, the first ever hypercar from the Arab world is set to be unveiled.
Called the LykanHypersport - which sounds a bit like Luke Skywalker's latest daily driver - it wants to go wheel-to-wheel with the Bugattis and Koenigseggs of the world.
With a 750bhp, twin-turbo flat-six wedged in behind the driver, the LykanHypersport can apparently hit 60mph in 2.8 seconds (that's faster than an Aventador) and on to a ‘break neck' (their words, not ours) top speed of 242mph. Ouch.
