LusoMotors, famous for the design of the modern-day Ferrari Dino, is now presenting the mid-engined LM23, a model of which design is inspired from the Lotus 23b. But the new LM 23 means more track racing than looks. The new reshaped model features a space frame chassis made of steel tubing, with double skin aluminum alloy sheets and the outerskin is made of fiberglass and carbon fiber elements.

Those who wish to buy the car can choose from a variety of car or motorcycle engines all of which deliver power to the rear wheels. The company’s engineers are currently trying a 150hp 1.0l unit from a Honda CBR1000 with a 6 speed sequential gearbox. They could fit also a turbocharged Subaru boxer engine to the new LM23. With a special body kit, the standard 4WD setup is converted into a 2WD gearbox delivering power to the rear wheels. The price for a complete kit excluded the engine starts from from €15,000 (11,500 GBP or $23,600).
