Lyonheart K Is the Modern E-Type Melange
However, there’s some really bad news we have to bring to your attention if the E-Type Jag fan in you is acting up. It’s going to cost €495,000, which is $655,000 at today’s exchange rate. And that only pays for the car, not the options or taxes.
The good news is that with a 5.0-liter V8 engine, providing 550 hp and 680 Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque, it won’t be boring in the least bit. The engine comes standard with a six-speed automatic transmission, so it’s more of a poser.
But, the designers have envisioned a light car that only weighs 1575 kg (3,472 lb), which translates into a sprint from 0-100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and hit an electronically limited top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph).
