When you hear about a new supercar promising 1,700 horsepower, 0-60 mph in 2.2 seconds, and essentially becoming the fastest production car in the world, it’s only right to raise a skeptical eyebrow. But for a moment, let’s enjoy the insane claims being made by New York-based startup, Lyons Motor Car.
The LM2 Streamliner is the name of this outlandish creation, and it features a twin-turbocharged DOHC V8 engine, giving it the power to reach a top-speed of 290 mph. With a carbon fiber body, full length carbon fiber chassis, Brembo-sourced carbon ceramic brake rotors, and other top-shelf components, Lyons Motor Car says the bar is being raised to new heights. The car will also reportedly have no use for chassis wiring harnesses, meaning the Streamliner’s features will all work wirelessly via smartphone. Keep an eye out for the LM2 Streamline prototype later this week at the New York Auto Show. [Purchase]
