Once a nimble small industry, the American automotive industry became bloated by its size, abandoned interesting projects altogether. Lucra is a boutique sports car company based in California, building high powered, and high priced automobiles. Their latest offering is this L148, might not be the most practical car on the road, but its almost one-piece carbon fiber body is lightweight and rigid. Powered with a 4.7-liter GM LS7 V8 engine, it is reported to pump out 500 horsepower. Furthermore, transmission is borrowed from Mercedes-Benz, in a form of seven-speed paddle shift.
