Dubai based supercar manufacturer W Motors has disclosed the first of many technical features from its new Fenyr SuperSport. The innovative active spoiler is made up of three separate moving panels and is operated by an electro-mechanical system.
The two smaller outer flaps raise at 50 mph (80 km/h) and the large full width panel is deployed at 75 mph (120 km/h). These active aero panels help keeping the rear of the Fenyr planted, resulting in extra road holding in addition to the mechanical grip of the chassis as well as more cornering stability.
The Fenyr SuperSport is based on an aluminium chassis with a carbon fibre body that is also developed by the company. The 4.0 flat six twin turbo engine is sourced from Porsche tuning company Ruf in Germany and delivers 900 hp and over 800 lb ft of torque. W Motors predicts a top speed exceeding 249 mph (400 km/h) and a 0 to 62 (100 km/h) sprint in 2.7 seconds.
The name Fenyr comes from 12th century Norse mythology. According to the manuscript Prose Edda, this monstrous wolf will break free on doomsday and cause total destruction: “The earth will shake violently, trees will be uprooted, mountains will fall, and all binds will snap – and Fenyr will be free.”
