Alright, it’s not really a car for Batman, but certainly not for Robin, and definitely an eye catcher if you have $3.5-million to burn to get from point A to point B. Drive:
When it comes to athletes known for dropping outrageous sums of money on outrageous supercars, the usual names are Floyd Mayweather or Yoenis Cespedes. Which is why it’s a little shocking that Hector Olivera, a Major League Baseball outfielder who is currently a free agent after being released by the San Diego Padres months after an arrest for assault and battery, just shelled out $3.5 million for a Lykan HyperSport.
OK, he’s got the money. What about the car?
The car, one of only seven to be built, is powered by a 3.7-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six engine tuned by RUF, good for a whopping 780 horsepower and 708 lb.-ft. of torque. It’ll rip to 60 in 2.8 seconds and has a reported top speed of 240 miles per hour. It also has 420 diamonds, amounting to 15 carats, embedded in the headlights… The stitching on the seats incorporates real gold, because of course it does, and there’s a holographic display system that uses gesture displays on the center console.
What does it look like? Fast.
