The world’s fastest and most expensive ambulance responder has been unveiled by the Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services (DCAS).
Manufactured in the UAE, the Lykan HyperSport supercar is the creation of the Dubai-based company W Motors and is valued at AED13 million.
One of only seven in the world, the ‘HyperSport Responder’ accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds and has a top speed of 400 km/h with its twin turbocharged 780 hp Porsche engine.
Equipped with 440 diamonds lined in the front LED headlights, the responder also comes with a gold-plated interior roof and the car’s cabin is upholstered in gold stitched leather.
"The car’s speed and capabilities can significantly reduce response time during emergencies and ensure timely intervention," said Khalifa bin Darrai, CEO of DCAS.
The supercar’s exterior features the slogan ‘Dubai, the world’s best city to live in’ and the logo of ‘DubaiDestinations’, an initiative launched recently by the Dubai Media Council to highlight the emirate’s unique experiences and activities.
It was unveiled at Expo 2020 Dubai and is set to serve as a new attraction for visitors to the world’s largest cultural event.
The ambulance is another addition to the Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services’ fleet of 331 vehicles that cover different areas in the emirate.
The ‘HyperSport Responder’ comes with a hand-made carbon-fibre body and is equipped with many futuristic features including the world’s first 3D hologram holographic mid-air display with interactive motion control, a satellite navigation and a system that connects to the internet.
The Lykan HyperSport car made its first appearance in the Hollywood blockbuster movie Fast & Furious 7.
