Lyons Motor Car LM2 streamliner concept has finally been unveiled at the New York Auto Show after the hypercar was unable to make it during the press days of the event because the design prototype was not ready. The CEO of the automaker, Mr. Kevin W. Lyons said that the car will be displayed at the NY Auto Show during the public days at a later date as, “There is still work to be done to have the concept car meet the standards”. On Monday morning, the offbeat vehicle was rolled into the Javitz Center after which a photo of the prototype was uploaded on Lyons’ official Facebook page. The 1,700HP LM2 Streamliner was the “most anticipated” car at the NY auto show and is now “outperforming all other cars in popularity.”
At the rear of the LM2 is a 8.2 liter twin-turbo V8 mill produced by Nelson Racing giving it a maximum output of 1,700hp and 2,183Nm of torque through a seven-speed sequential transmission upgraded by Underground Racing. With a bodyweight of over 1.4 tons, the LM2 Streamliner can sprint from 0-96 km/h in just 2.2 secs and can go as fast as 467km/h, which is phenomenal.
Commercial production for the streamliner is set to begin later this year with price levels starting at US$1.5 million. Another SSS ‘Nürburgring Killer’ with engine power 2,000hp will be offered to buyers at US$1.9 million. At the press conference, Lyons Motors confessed to have only ‘potential orders’ for the vehicle, which was basically people who have showed high interest in the hypercar. However, the automaker is confident that this potential would be translated into solid results once the concept car is released.
