This Lightweight Lucra LC470 Could Torch A Modern Ferrari

A throwback to old muscle and lightweight specials, this Lucra LC470 roadster is beyond fast. Think you can handle it?

Although we don't want to admit it, the golden age of raw, lightweight sports cars is quite possibly behind us now, what with ever more complex mechanicals and the increasing use of electronics. However, that hasn’t stopped some small scale manufacturers from strutting their stuff, with Lucra providing one of the most potent – and lucrative – of the modern day lightweights.

Built in 2014, the LC470 roadster has a five-speed manual gearbox and a LS7 7.0-litre V8 petrol engine, producing 520bhp. These figures are far beyond anything that an old Lotus or TVR is capable of. And more to the point, it shouldn't self-detonate in traffic like an older British sports car.

To achieve a light kerb weight, the car boasts an all carbon fibre body, split into three layers, and a laser-cut chassis, which also provides a low centre of gravity. You can find one now on My Classic Garage, with a sale price of $89,900 (£70,650/€78,550) or $1020 per month in increments.

The engine has a large torque range, and is built with the driveability of Chevrolet’s old small block engines in mind, meaning the Lucra offers a perfect blend of classic feel and modern performance. Independent front and rear suspension, with aluminium PRO shocks and C4 Corvette links and power rack-and-pinion steering allow the Lucra to tackle any corner at any speed, depending on how brave you are feeling.

Should you overcook your cornering talents, the LC470 employs Wilwood four and six-piston ccallipers which squeeze a quartet of slotted rotors to slow the vehicle down with effective force.

Finished in vivid PPG Big League Blue, with a grey leather interior, bucket seats and a carbon fibre dash, this 8947-mile model could be yours with a hefty discount if you play your cards right and make an offer through My Classic Garage that meets seller RK Motors’ demands.

It may be more expensive than a classic sports car, but it certainly has the performance figures to torch them with ease. Up for the challenge? Let us know how you get on...
