DISGUSTING - the car, the price, the bling, anyone who buys one.

The price is just WAY beyond the pale! But it is a good looking car I will say that much for it? :-)

The design and engineering is real so i wont hate it. The limiting to 7 produced shows they are not even close to doing this for the money.
The cost and Bling show the scale of swag some people are prepared to desire and the phrase buyer beware should be going off like an alarm. Will take some really foolish rich folks to buy these. LOL To park in their batcaves.
I love the design but the price and encrusting of precious stones? Hell no!!

Just goes to show that good taste and lots of money are so very often mutually exclusive.
Guess the Sultan of Brunei will want one to add to his private collection of hundreds of rarely or never driven exotics.

The bling is waaay over-the-top! But the design is fantastic it doesnt look like any car available today (Closest maybe is the Lamborghini Aventador) The looks scream aggression and speed and it is surely a beautiful car. They should've made 49 or something though and left out the gems and gold and crap and sold it for $1mil instead...

How much is the CAR worth? Forget the gold an gemstones; that has nothing to do with engineering. I can tape a 4 million dollar diamond necklace to my hood and say that my toyota is worth 4,008,000 $

I must admit, I find the overall design in and around the car very nice. If the designer would use the proceeds from undoubtedly selling all the limited specimens to overly wealthy types and pour that money into building a serious enthusiasts car with the same general design and performance, we might have a really exciting new super car on the market! It's a shame that half these cars will virtually never be driven and the other half will (statistically likely) kill a few Red Bull pumped up children of Sheiks.

That's funny...a rear wheel drive car, powered by a Porsche motor, with gold and diamond "encrusted" headlights that pretends to be equal to the Bugatti (or the 911 Turbo for that matter). Good thing they are only building 7 units as they will be garage queens; to be driven gingerly around the block and used in the ongoing game of one upmanship and self-imagined male potency...
Sales staff will treat customers with the kind of reverence reserved for very wealth people; people with little or no connection to either common sense or the idea that spending 1/3 the amount might allow them to feed, clothe and educate 10,000 starving children.

Chris Mark D mentioned batcaves. Speaking of, the original Batmobile from the '60s TV show is even more exclusive and recently sold at the Barrett-Jackson auction for $4.2M ($4.62M with fees), making it more expensive too. Still, I like the styling, both exterior and interior, and the performance of the Lykan Hypersport, but encrusted gemstones? Then again, I'm several paygrades below the target demographic so I can't relate.

looks like a bad cross between Robocop and Werewolf (lycan)

Glad I don't have to drive that Erector Set gone wild.
6th February, 2013 @ 9:26 a.m. (California Time)
That's the best looking car I'd ever seen.
I was loving the whole thing until I read about the diamonds and gems being part of it. But that doesn't change the looks. Love it!
6th February, 2013 @ 9:47 a.m. (California Time)
Just another toy for the shamelessly rich!
6th February, 2013 @ 10:28 a.m. (California Time)
At first glance, reminded me of an Audi R-8.
6th February, 2013 @ 11:36 a.m. (California Time)
Can I order one for $3.2 million minus the watch? I already have a watch but not an overly-expensive supercar,
6th February, 2013 @ 2:32 p.m. (California Time)
I would say MAYBE if the car had been made with similar performance (actually a bit better would have been nice) but in a 4 seat version. After all, you're going to spend $3.4 Mil on a car, wouldn't you want to impress your friends as you all cruise around town together?
6th February, 2013 @ 3:01 p.m. (California Time)
Like people have said, the jewels are over the top and well, dumb. The car looks amazing from the side and the front...but the back doesn't look nearly as good, it looked like they were just trying their best to copy the front......which was a mistake.
The price tag is obviously way to high.
All in all, its a pretty cool (albeit over the top) car.

Presumably any buyer living more than a few hundred kms from the factory will be able to afford to either transport it back 'home' or to fly in a mechanic when needed. The added 'bling' is just an who-wants-to-spend-more-money gimmick.

I'll bet the owner of one of these does not know about the 99%. Now make it a VW kit car and you could have a 99% market.

W is for WOFTAM. This is the ultimate WOFTAM.

The watch that comes with the car can buy a Ferrari...just sayin'.
7th February, 2013 @ 11:29 a.m. (California Time)
I saw a post from top gear that said they are going to test one.

"DISGUSTING - the car, the price, the bling, anyone who buys one. "
Who are you to decide for others what they have the right ton do with their money?
Who are you to judge them?
What is disgusting is self righteous hypocrites who want to decide for everyone else what they have a right to like.

This car is Fugly in every sense of the word.

Hehe,... love to see people's blood boil over nonsense.
I tend to lean towards Fusiontek's comment, because frankly wealth, taste and wants are all relative.
I'm sure some kid in the poor end of India or Africa is making the same comment about how much the average Joe consumes and wastes in the 'civilised' world.
If its any consolation, given a long enough timeline, any possession regardless of value will revert to its fundamental Carbon, Silicon, Iron, Oxygen and other trace elements. More so with this vehicle when some fool tests its top speed on Saudi roads.

I wonder if there are really 7 left, or if one of them was the one destroyed in Furious 7? They actually told much of this story in the movie.

It looks like it was made up from parts of many cars that don't seem to fit, as well as being grossly over priced which accentuates the original problem.....should have named it Helter Skelter.
12th April, 2015 @ 7:49 a.m. (California Time)
Fusiontek, no need to be so righteous. It's a stupid car for stupid people.
