New Lyonheart K Evokes E-Type Jaguar Styling
Lyonheart Cars have released further details on their all-aluminium luxury sportscar – the Lyonheart K Coupé and Convertible.
The Lyonheart K was originally presented to the public in February 2012. Created by Robert Palm, founder of Swiss design firm Classic Factory, the Lyonheart K has been engineered and will be built by the Envisage Group in Coventry, a specialist in building low volume series for connoisseur-type carmakers.
The planned production of 250 cars, including Coupé and Convertible versions, will be built between December 2013 and the summer of 2015. Due to demand, the delivery time for the Lyonheart K is currently 18 to 24 months, depending on specifications and body type.
With Jaguar XK underpinnings, a Cosworth tuned 5.0 litre supercharged engine delivers 575PS and 700Nm of torque. Lyonheart claims an all aluminium chassis and multilink chassis delivers improved dynamics and agility.
Speed-wise, the sportscar reaches 100kph in under 4 seconds and tops 300kph (electronically limited). 50 percent of the production will be sold in Europe, 20 percent in the Middle East and 30 percent in China. The production will be strictly limited to 250 cars (including coupé and convertible).
Current pricing options are as follows: Coupé: EUR 360’000; Convertible: EUR 375’000.
