We've written a bit about the Lucra LC470 before, but the car's incredible numbers deserve to be restated:

  • 630hp GM LS7 V8
  • 2,000 lb weight.
  • 0-60mph in 2.5 seconds
  • 1/4 Mile in 9.1 seconds at 149mph
  • 1.5 laters Gs in cornering
  • 46/54 weight balance

Think of it as a magical combination of Bugatti Veyron speed and Lotus Exige handling. It's essentially that ideal sports car that you imagine, and then assume is impossible. It's very cool to hear about how its made, and to see it in action.
