Lyonheart K aims to revive emotions attached to the legendary Jaguar E-type, with modern technologies and performance to match.

27 Feb 2012 | International News : U.K.

An all-new British sports car has been revealed. Named the Lyonheart K, the coupe bears deep resemblance to the legendary Jaguar E-type that has set many hearts racing.

Do not be fooled by the styling – elements from the E-type are only skin-deep. The K features an advanced chassis constructed out of aluminum, fitted with carbon fibre body panels. At its heart is a 5.0-litre Supercharged V8 pumping out 542hp, which should see to supercar performance in the 1.6 ton coupe.

Each example of the Lyonheart K is hand-built by the skilled craftsman based in Coventry, in the newly founded company: Lyonheart Cars Ltd. Robert Palm, CEO of Classic Factory, said: ‘We want to make the ‘Made In England’ label into a truthful concept, not just a statement. Every part of the Lyonheart K is developed, engineered and hand-built in England. The design clues of the Lyonheart K reflect Britishness at its best: cool, elegant, refined, understated yet powerful and dynamic.’
