The dawn of the American Supercar

Never underestimate a small industry that is around you, believe me, they are the spearhead of the movement of a country's economy. Ok, apart from that, there are a sportscar manufacturer based in California called Lucra Cars. Recently Lucra Cars launched their latest sportscar, which are named L148 and claimed to have extraordinary power.

Maybe this is not the fastest car in the world, but it can be said that this is one of the lightest cars ever. This is reasonable, because the car body is made of carbon fiber materials.

The L148 sportscar is equipped with a mid-mounted GM LS7 V8 engine with a capacity of 4.7-liters and is believed capable of spewing power of 700 hp (532 kW), which may be chanelled to the rear axle through a Mercedes seven-speed paddleshift transmission.

With a one-piece carbon fibre body and such a powerfull engine, the 2014 Lucra L148 zips from zero to 100 kph (62 mph) in a mere 2.5 seconds and a 10 second quarter mile (0.4 km) time. While the speed and power are impressive, equally stunning is the attractive design, which looks like a cobra getting ready to strike when viewed from the front.

Unlike it’s predecessor, the LC740, the L148 will have traditional conveniences such as air conditioning, GPS, and satellite radio, making it more suitable for daily travel and not just street racing.

The 2014 Lucra L148 has a 148-inch wheelbase, 13-inch front tires, and 14-inch rear tires. The solid body carbon fibre construction makes the frame a lot straighter and stronger than pieced together frames, but it could make for a very expensive fender-bender repair.

The L148 is currently planned to reach the road in mid-2014 and it is designed to appeal to the superwealthy looking for something new and different. This certainly fits the bill, and you can be almost sure that no one else on the block will have one. How fast can you go? *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | LUCRA CARS | AUTOBLOG]
