Lyons Motor Car LM2 missed the New York Auto Show
As Jalopnik learned, the LM2 wasn't ready in time for the media days at the show. A company spokesperson claimed that the build wasn't up to the standards of the founders, and there was still body and interior work to complete. Prior to the event, Lyons Motor Car made stratospheric claims about the capabilities of the LM2. Claims include a twin-turbo V8 with 1,700 horsepower and 1,610 pound-feet of torque and a seven-speed gearbox. The company only released renderings of the design, but all of the power was wrapped in absolutely bizarre styling with a wildly pitched nose and curving body.
There's still a sliver of a chance that the LM2 might actually meet the world. According to the company's message to Jalopnik, the car will be on display at some point during the show's public days from April 3-12. We won't hold our breath.
