Kevin Lyons, graphic designer, custom car enthusiast, and founder of Lyons Motor Car Limited, intends to debut the company’s premiere car at this years New York Auto Show.
Dubbed the LM2 Streamliner, the curvaceous carbon fiber two-seater is a mid-engined, all-wheel drive luxury sports car that will purportedly “change the landscape of the high end supercar.” Powered by an 8.2-liter twin turbo V8 developed by Nelson Racing, the Streamliner plans to have an output of 1,700 horsepower and 1,610 pound-feet of torque. This immense amount of power will go to all four wheels via a seven-speed sequential gearbox.
Its calculated that the bespoke super car will launch from 0 to 60 in 2.2 seconds, topping out at an estimated 290 mph. All this will be capable without the use of any chassis wiring as a microprocessor will control the entire electrical system.
Such power and performance numbers sound a little too good to be true, and since we’ve yet to see any pictures or videos of the car in action, we’ll have to take Lyons Motor Car’s word for it for now. Hopefully, when the prototype is unveiled next week, we’ll get some more details of how it intends to back all these high claims.
