The first supercar manufactured by a Middle Eastern company is turning heads at the 2013 Qatar Motor Show, Motor Authority reported.

The Lykan Hypersport, designed by United Arab Emirates-based W Motors, can go from zero to 60 miles per hour in just 2.8 seconds and has a top speed of 245 miles per hour, according to Motor Authority.

Motor Authority reported:

The overall design of the Lykan is unique, though there’s no denying the influences from more established supercars like the Audi R8 and Lamborghini Aventador.

As befitting its $3.4 million price tag, the car comes with diamond-coated LED headlights and gold-stitched leather seats, Drive Arabia News reported. W Motors will also throw in a watch – a Cyrus Klepcys watch, valued at $200,000.

W Motors, which was founded in Beirut, Lebanon, by Sari El Khalil, will limit production to just seven cars, Drive Arabia News reported.
