Lyonheart K Luxury Sports Car

 It’s been over a year since anybody has heard anything new about the Jaguar E Type-based Lyonheart K stunner. Fortunately, the Coventry-based manufacturer is back with fresh news about their very good looking ride. Apparently they will offer two variants of the Lyonheart K – convertible and coupe

Inspired by the 1960s’ E Class, the sports car features an aluminum multilink chassis and it was engineered as well as built by Envisage Group, UK. The design concept belongs to Bo Zolland and Robert Palm, founder of Classic Factory in Switzerland. Since the first appearance of the car back in 2012, some specifications have been changed for extra appeal.

These include 17 extra bhp, up from 550 bhp, and a torque of 516 lb-ft. The supercharged, 5.0-liter V8 engine can push the luxury runner to a top speed of 186 mph, while the 0-62 mph time is under 4 seconds. Depending on the body type and specifications that the client needs, the sultry Lyonheart K can be delivered to its buyer in 18-24 months.

Apparently only 250 units are scheduled for production for quite a long period of time: from December 2013 until summer 2015. The very exclusive vehicle will boast a quite prohibitive price as well: €360,000 (approx. $463,000) for the coupe version, and €375,000 ($483,000) for the convertible. Half of all units will be sold across Europe, 30 percent in China, and the remaining 20 percent in the Middle East. Looks like there is nothing for the US market just yet.
