the lyonheart car ‘K’ sport coupe was developed without jaguar’s participation by robert palm, founder of swiss design studio classic factory, and was engineered and built in coventry, UK, by the envisage group. the classic coupe’s 5.0 liter supercharged V8 is fine tuned by cosworth, and can push 567 bhp with 516 ft-lb (700 Nm) of torque. the sheer power allows the ‘K’ to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.7 seconds, with a maximum speed limited to 300 km/h (186 mph).

  • for future reference: In your description you write “the 1960’s” referring to the period from 1960 through 1969. It should be written, “the 1960s” in that an apostrophe does NOT the plural make. This is a common mistake, but a mistake just the same.
