LM2 Streamliner is the name of a very interesting project that the visitors of the New York Auto Show will be capable of seeing. It is a supercar project by an American company called Lyons Motor Car. We have to tell you immediately that this car will challenge our perception of horsepower because it can actually produce 1700 hp (1250 kW). These horses come from a DOHC V8 engine that has been 4 cam twin turbocharged and features twin intercoolers, and has been connected to AWD 7 speed sequential gearbox.
And if you wonder about the 0-60 mph acceleration time, it is as impressive as the output. The company guarantees 2.2 seconds coverage, or even better, and below 8 seconds quarter mile time.
For these numbers is also contributing the body of the Streamliner, since it is made of pure carbon fiber. The chassis is full length carbon and features billet stainless steel subframes. Even the Brembo brake rotors are made from the same lightweight material.
Other highlights that must be mentioned here are the Bosh ESP and ABS systems package, the titanium and billet aluminum suspension, the Sport Mode for lower ride height, and the stainless steel, inconel and titanium exhaust system. Full LEDs are also inevitable with their 1200 watt HID driving lamps.
Inside, one will find 16 inch touch screen control center computer that will offer access to the navigation and the premium infotainment system. There are no words on the pricing yet, but we expect that it will be revealed during the auto show.
The big question that is circulating in my mind is: Should Bugatti fear?
