Lyons LM2 Streamliner

Startup Lyons Motor Car will debut its first vehicle at the 2015 New York Auto Show.

It's called the LM2 Streamliner, and from the get go, you can see that this is no ordinary hypercar— because it looks like something out of a 90s sci-fi film. The long-streamlined dimensions give way to teeny tiny little headlights, a low-slung hood, and some very dramatic features from front to back. But it's nowhere near as dramatic as the engine.

1,700 horsepower comes from under the hood. Using a twin-turbocharged 8.2-liter V8 from Nelson Racing, the Streamliner is said to get to 60 mph in 2.2 seconds, on to a top speed of 290 mph. Of course, none of these figures have been tested in the real world.

Inside, drivers will be met with a 16-inch touchscreen. That 16-inch touchscreen will be the sole interior feature controlling every aspect of the car. Say goodbye to switches and knobs.
