Many companies dream about building their very own supercar, but the truth is that this business requires an insane amount of patience, money and expertise. Lyons Motor Cars think they have a legit shot at joining the successful “supercar” startups, and if their concept car will be anything what they promise it to be, we could be in for quite an experience.
The hypercar has been dubbed LM2 Streamliner and it looks like it will debut at next month’s New York Auto Show. Just by looking at the design, you can already tell that this is no ordinary car. The closest comparison from an aesthetic standpoint might be the Dodge M4S prototype they have used in the 1986 movie called “The Wraith”. You know the one where Charlie Sheen comes back from the grave to avenge his own death with the help of a supercar.
It really looks like something out of a sci-fi movie. The exterior is no doubt impressive, but what makes this beauty so remarkable is its supposed speed and power. If you know anything about concept cars, you probably realize that the initial numbers are not always accurate. This is the reason why we have to be cautious, but if Lyons Motor Cars can indeed pull this off, they will create one of the most powerful cars ever.
The LM2 Streamliner will supposedly come with 1,700 horsepower. This enormous amount of power will be possible thanks to its twin-turbocharged V8 motor that’s been designed by Nelson Racing. With that kind of power, acceleration shouldn’t be an issue to put it mildly. The new car will supposedly reach 60 from 0 in just 2.2 seconds and its top speed will come at a remarkable 290 mph or 466 km/h. The New York Motor Show can’t come soon enough.
