The Lion Tyranus - A Race Car For The Road
Using a 6L NA V12 revving up to 9700 RPM, it makes 910 horsepower at 8500 RPM.
It weighs in at just under 1600 kg
17.5l/100km, 2.4 0-100 kmh and a 370kmh top speed.
The Lion du Mans is a Le Mans hypercar prototype. Using a shortened variant of the Tyranus Chassis it weighs 1210kg. It has a 4.3l 90° Turbocharged V8 generating 788 horsepower, propelling it to 100 kph from a standstill in 2.3 seconds, with a top speed of 333 kph
The Lion Extasy - 1070 horsepowers. 5L v10 with twin turbos, 11.7L/100km, 361 km/h top speed and 2.3 s 0-100km/h.
It’s not road legal.
Judging by that statement, I reckon the Extasy was built solely to set lap records at circuits everywhere around the world.
Pretty much, yeah. Don’t know the laptime on the top gear track off the top of my head but it was a 1:08 or 1:09 I believe.
Edit: it was a 1:07.68
Meet the 2019 Lion Omicron 712TT
Powered by a 7L V12, which has been twin turbocharged, it generates 1357hp. 14.6L/100km for fuel economy, 382 km/h top speed with a 2.3s 0-100km/h time.
This time it is road legal though, which however does not stop it from setting a 1:06.5 on the Dunsfold airfield circuit, and clocking in a 1:50.87 at the Automation Dedicated Test Circuit. AWD, a 7-speed DCT, wide tyres, large 6-piston Carbon Ceramic brakes and a LOT of downforce complete the Omicron.
Oh, don’t forget the sidepipes.

The 2019 Lion Æron. 945.0hp @ 9500 RPM from a twin turbocharged 5014cc 60 degree V12 redlining at 10400 RPM. 13.0L/100km, a 365km/h top speed, 2.4s 0-100kmh, 1602.3kg and a 1:09.47 around Top Gear’s Dunsfold airfield track.
