The Lyonheart K is the modern day Jaguar E-Type

The classic Jaguar E-Type was considered one of the most beautiful cars of all time and probably that’s why designers Robert Palm and Bo Zolland wanted to recreate that retro awesomeness with state of the art technology and features. That’s how the Lyonheart K was born, a wonderful supercar that aims to evoke British sporting tradition with its stylish design.

The Lyonheart K comes with an ultra light carbon fiber body which sits on top of an aluminum chassis and it’s powered by a massive 5.0 liter V8 engine which is able to produce 550 PS and 680 Nm of torque. Since this bespoke car is pretty light, just 3,472 lbs (or 1,575 kg) and it has this much power under the hood, its able to sprint from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.9 seconds and it could reach a top speed which is electronically limited at 186 mph or 300 km/h.

Apart from its beautiful retro design, this car also comes with 20 inch alloys, LED taillights and a clamshell hood, among the many modern-look elements. The interior is also wonderful with premium leather upholstery, wood trim and brushed aluminum accents.

The only bad part about the stunning Lyonheart K is.. its price: Exactly $654,785 or 495,000 EUR.
