All American – Lucra LC470

In the past few years there has been a revival of lightweight sports cars, the classic british concept. Here we have another of these cars but instead of have a light 2.0 litre engine, it has an all American  7.0 litre GM LS7 V8 with an Aluminium fuel injected 427 ci, 630 bhp!  The LC470 is light, stiff, powerful, fast and perfectly balanced convertible sports racing car, very reminiscent of 1950’s race cars like the Jaguar D-Type, the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR and the Maserati 300S. I really like the looks and idea of the LC470 and imagine I’m not alone.

More information on the car and specs can be found here.
