Lucra L148

It seems like everywhere you look these days, some American boutique carmaker is introducing their take on a track-ready, lightweight super car — and the Lucra L148 ($250,000) is the latest in that crop. But don't get it wrong, we're definitely not complaining. If there's anything the guys in Detroit need, it's a little bit of smalltime competition to push them in the right direction. The second of the California company's cars, the L148, should definitely turn a few Michigan heads. With a 4.7-liter V8 engine underneath the hood, and an aerodynamic body entirely crafted from carbon fiber, this hot two-seater will do zero to 60 in just 2.5 seconds, with an estimated 500 horsepower.
