LYONHEART K: 250 - No More. No Less.
Coventry, UK (ots)
Due to very encouraging customer response, the planned production of the all-new British luxury sports car, the LYONHEART K, has been increased to a series of 250 cars. In addition, upon customer insistence, a convertible version of the Lyonheart K will also be built.
The Lyonheart K was presented to the public in February 2012 and immediately achieved worldwide acclaim. Created by Robert Palm, founder of Swiss design firm Classic Factory, the Lyonheart K will be built in Coventry at Envisage Manufacturing, well known for their expertise in building low volume series for renowned carmakers.
Robert Palm said: "Every part of the Lyonheart K is developed, engineered and hand-built in England. The build quality will match and even surpass the best you can find on the luxury car market. With partners like Envisage and Cosworth, we are truly confident to be able to put an extraordinary product in the hands of true connoisseurs."
The Cosworth refined 5.0 Litre Supercharged V8 delivers 575PS and 700Nm of torque. The state-of-the-art all aluminium chassis and a finely tuned multilink chassis offers superb dynamics and agility. The Lyonheart K reaches 100kph in under 4 seconds and tops 300kph (electronically limited).
Lyonheart's design philosophy is simple: use only genuine materials - leather, veneer, polished stainless steel, brushed aluminium and chromed metal, nothing else. Opening the traditional, front-hinged clamshell bonnet will reveal the high-tech Cosworth refined powertrain.
70 percent of the production will be sold in Europe, 10 percent in the Middle East and 20 percent in China. The production will be strictly limited to 250 cars, including coupé and convertible. The price will remain well under 400'000 Euro before tax and deliveries start early 2014.
