In a statement sent to an automotive website, the automaker explained it by saying, “as a start-up company, Lyons Motor Car is self-funded and the founders work to ensure that each car, whether its a prototype or actual automobile, exceeds their and the industry’s expectations of what a luxury car brand is” and it is because of this high standard that it decide to delay the release of the prototype for the Streamliner.
The price tag for this modern speed demon, if it goes into production? Oh just $1.3 million.
Lyons Motor Car was founded by Kevin Lyons in 2011 and the cool part is that it’s a U.S. company based out of New York City. Lyons’ goal is to compete with European high-performance supercar brands.
On its website, Lyons Motor Car describes it as built on a “carbon fiber body, and full length carbon fiber chassis, with carbon fiber and billet stainless steel subframes” with “the most advanced and technologically convenient Full microprocessor controlled electrical system ever.”
The site also says the plan was to have the prototype ready by February 2015, but as we’ve seen, that hasn’t happened. The New York Auto Show runs through April 12th. For more information about the show head to the auto show website.
