American Startup Hints at 1700HP Supercar
A startup automaker from the land of America, Lyon Motor Car, has hinted that it is going to preview a very powerful supercar at the upcoming New York Auto Show automotive exhibition event. According to the American startup company, this will be the very first vehicle model that it has ever produced.
The vehicle in question is going to bring the LM2 Streamliner moniker. Quite interestingly, the company behind the development of the model claims that the car will succeed where others have failed. With this very model, the startup plans to compete head to head against the more established automakers from various parts of the globe.
Lyon Motor Car announces that its upcoming supercar model will pack an 8.2L V8 engine backed by twin turbochargers. This engine will reportedly deliver no less than 1700 HP in terms of power output. It is said that the engine will be coming from the Nelson Racing Engines, a company with a robust reputation for its capability of manufacturing some of the world’s most powerful engines ever. On the LM2 Streamliner, the engine will also be paired with a 7-speed sequential gearbox that will send power to all four wheels of the vehicle.
With such an engine configuration, it is believed that the upcoming supercar from the American startup company will tackle the 0-100km/h sprint in just 2.2 seconds. Yet, if that does not sound interesting enough, Lyon Motor Car even claims that its creation should be able to reach a top speed of 466 km/h.
Another interesting bit of news in respect to the Lyon Motor Car LM2 Streamliner is that it won’t use standard chassis wiring used on most cars. The car will instead benefit from an electrical system controlled by a microprocessor. Uniquely, this system only has one wire and it is this very wire that will transmit codes to all parts of the vehicle.
Last but not least, it is reported that the car will make good use of the lightweight carbon fiber material for its body construction and inside the cabin, buyers can expect a huge 16-inch touchscreen display that eliminates the needs for conventional dials, switches and buttons.
