The recipe for success when it comes to automobiles involves finding that sweet spot between great looks, a low curb weight and a powerful drivetrain, and these are exactly the principles that were invoked in the manufacturing process of the 2013 Lucra LC470.
Now even though you might not be familiar with the brand yet, Lucra will definitely make a name for itself in no time thanks to its incredible LC470 roadster. Flaunting an exquisite, almost classic appearance, this powerful little car flaunts a carbon fiber body that gives it a weight of under 2,000 pounds. As we mentioned before, pairing lightness with power is the best way to go if you want to create a quick car, which is why Lucra offers its clients three very powerful engine choices based on an AMG 6.3-liter V8, a 6.3-liter LS3 or a 7.0-liter LS7. No matter the choice, the LC470 would most likely break the 600 horsepower barrier with no effort at all, but all that power needs to be kept in check and fed to the wheels via an equally impressive gearbox. For this purpose, Lucra offers a standard Tremec TKO 5-speed gearbox or a 7-speed Mercedes paddle shift in order to cater to the needs of their picky customers.
The end result is nothing short of spectacular no matter the choice, as the entry-level options are guaranteed to deliver a 0-60 mph sprint in just 2.7 seconds as well as a top speed of 200 mph. The car’s handling can be enhanced according to preference through a fully adjustable suspension, while a set of Willwood brakes ensures immense stopping power. That being said, you’ll be pleased to know that the 2013 Lucra LC470 is completely street-legal, even though its price tag of $85,000 might discourage a few potential fans from actually making a purchase. It’s all worth every penny though.
