Created by Portuguese LusoMotors, the LM GT is a lightweight sportscar with three body variants – a shooting-brake and two open designs. The project, developed with the UK market in mind, is targeted to kit cars manufacturers.

LM GTThe goal of the project is to propose a lightweight sportscar to kit car manufacturers in order to start a small-scale and limited series production – a sportscar that is affordable and can be purchased by amateur kit car builders.

According to Portuguese engineering company LusoMotors, the LM GT could be based on an existing chassis, such as the Lotus Seven’s one or – alternatively – on a specific platform with BMW running gear which has been developed by LusoMotors itself.

In both cases the same chassis could provide the base for the three body style variants: a shooting-brake, a two-seat roadster and a single-seater barchetta-style sportscar.

As Ernesto Freitas explains, "Making these versions more appealing and daily usable is an idea that is getting a growing interest, and an important feature for some potential clients."

"We don’t intend to hide that these models were developed with the UK market (and the track-day users) in mind, but several other European countries could be considered, depending on demand and interest in the project."

With regards to the car’s design, he continues: "The design is fresh and actual, makes use of round shapes and some angular lines, defining movement and creating a link to classic models that are now part of our automotive history."
