The new Lyonheart K, designed in Switzerland and built in Britain, fashions itself as a “modern interpretation” of the classic Jaguar E-Type. Lyonheart Cars is synonymous with rare, exclusive, super luxury cars, hand-built in a limited series.
The classic sport car features a carbon fiber body which sits on top of an aluminum chassis, styling highlights, LED taillights and 20-inch wheels.
The interior is elegantly appointed with premium leather upholstery, wood trim and brushed aluminum accents.
“Our goal at Lyonheart Cars is to make the ‘Made In England’ label into a truthful concept, not just a statement. Every part of a Lyonheart car is developed, engineered and hand-built in England.”
A supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine, with 550 PS (405 kW / 542 hp) and 680 Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque, accelerates the car from 0-100 km/h in 3.9 seconds.
The car will be sold at around €495,000 – $650,000.
