Cyrus : W Motors chooses a blued Klepcys

According to legend, Cyrus the Great was abandoned by his grandfather in a forest and adopted by a wolf, from which he inherited his mental and physical strength. The path of the Cyrus brand has now crossed that of a powerful tarmac ‘wolf’, the new W Motors brand in which the W does indeed stand for this legendary creature. Unveiled in early 2013 at the Qatar motor show, its Lykan Hypersport has easily asserted itself as head of the pack in the supercar segment. Notably holding the world record for accelerating from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.8 seconds, its interior is studded with precious stones and packed with cutting-edge technologies such as the first interactive holographic display for driver and passenger. The doors of this entirely hand-assembled 7-piece carbon limited edition resemble a wolf’s ears, while the fire of the tail-lights symbolises its piercing gaze at night. The spirit of Cyrus, as well as the three-dimensional rotating moon of the Klepcys model particularly appealed to W Motors which has decided to associate with the Swiss watchmaker. Their partnership has given rise to a matching 7-piece Cyrus W Motors limited edition. Exclusively for owners of a Lykan Hypersport, the movement developer Jean-François Mojon will engrave his digital fingerpting on the back of this patented white gold timepiece.
