You might want to look at "ThinLisp" <>:

    ThinLisp is a Common Lisp implementation that compiles to very
    efficient C code. 
    By Jim Allard and Ben Hyde. It is meant to allow deployment of
    CL-developed applications as efficient C-compiled code, and thus
    includes notable restrictions as compared to full CL semantics.
    [...such as no GC.]
