The 2013 Lucra LC470 SC is considered to be an affordable supercar, which has been given a promotional tagline as being " STREET LEGAL".
This supercar is fitted with a GM LS7, 7.0 liter V8 engine that produces 630 horsepower. This combines with a cold-air intake system for increased throttle response and better engine use. It is connected to Tremec TKO five-speed gearbox at its rear section. These features enable the LC470 SC sprint from 0 to 60 mph in amazing 2.5 seconds. The chassis is made from 0.12 inch hot-rolled steel which is cheaper than cold rolled steel. Driver and passenger sit in the chassis instead of sitting on top of it, resulting to a lowered center of gravity that result in better handling.

The Lucra's body is made of 100% carbon fiber, resulting to a total body weight of 160 pounds. Its nose dives down similar to the Dodge Viper, but its circular headlights and rounded fenders closely looks more like the AC Shelby Cobra.
The Lucra LC470 SC does not come with door glass windows; rather, a set of Lexan side windows that comes with a safety storage case. The car is fitted with 17 by 11 inch aluminum front wheels and 17 by 9.5 inch aluminum rear wheels. Since the body is a one solid piece, you can rest assured that there will be no body panels to worry about deforming from racing.
Unlike most supercars, the Lucra LC470 SC comes with a cockpit that allows even tall people to sit in comfortably. The Shifter location is adjustable to allow the driver to set it to meet his or her arm length. It also boasts a tilt and telescoping steering wheel.
Although the top speed of this car has not been reviewed yet, it can be assumed to hit more than 180 mph, since a model with a taller axle ratio attains 190 mph. The 2013 Lucra LC470 SC is lightweight and attractive; and with the blend of the two-tone colors, the looks of this car get more enchanting.
