Lyonheart has released some new details about their upcoming Coupe and Convertible.
Designed by Bo Zolland and Robert Palm, the aluminum bodied Lyonheart K is a bespoke sports car that draws inspiration from the Jaguar E-Type. As such, the model features an oval grille, stainless steel accents and optional 20-inch wire wheels. Other highlights include bi-xenon headlamps, a stainless steel dual exhaust system and a power-operated soft top that can be raised or lowered in just 12 seconds at speeds up to 50 km/h (31 mph).
The cabin is elegantly appointed with premium leather upholstery, wood trim and bespoke switchgear. There's also retro-inspired instrumentation and brushed aluminum, stainless steel or chromed metal accents. Despite the old school charm, the Lyonheart K is decidedly modern as it is equipped with a Bowers & Wilkins audio system, Bluetooth/iPod/USB connectivity and a retractable infotainment system with a seven-inch display.
Power is provided by a Cosworth-tuned supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine that develops 575 HP (420 kW) and 700 Nm (510 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed automatic transmission which enables the model to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and hit a limited top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph). In terms of efficiency, owners can expect to average 11.9 L/100km (19.7 mpg US / 23.7 mpg UK) with CO2 emissions of 292 g/km.
Production is limited to 250 units and the first model is slated to be built in December. The coupe is priced from €360,000 ($463,930), while the convertible retails for €375,000 ($483,260).
