The Leviathan Motor Company
The Leviathan Motor Company is a Detroit based luxury brand founded in 1947 by David Townsend. LMC found early success in the crowded premium and luxury markets with the Captain line and rapidly expanded into new territories. The company’s interest in motorsports received a jumpstart when LMC landed a partnership with Rigore Engineering, supplying the Spectre RS1400 with powerful Boxer-4 engines which made an entry into the 1952 Corso di Fruinia possible. Soon after, LMC developed its first real sports car, the Halcyon. The Halcyon was a precursor to the Maladus, a model that has kept a place for LMC cemented in the US sports car market through the company’s high points and hardships since the early 60’s.
