The latest episode of The Downshift features an inside look at Lucra Cars and its LC470.
Having seen renderings of the barely street-legal 2013 LC470 back in June, it's taken almost half a year to find footage of the ludicrous new Lucra in action, which comes courtesy of Motor Trend. Revealing an inside look at the new, recently-updated LC470, which uses carbon-fiber body parts and GM's LS7 7.0-liter V8 engine, we find the rapid 900kg sports car can manage the 0-60 sprint in around 2.7 seconds, the quarter mile in 9.1 seconds and has the potential to hit a top speed of 220 mph. In a word, ludicrous.
A brand new car is currently under development and should be out in the summer. If it can match the LC470 in looks and performance then Lucra will surely have another hand-built hit on its hands.
