Iconic sports car: the Lightning GT

Written by on August 28, 2012 in Mobility - Comments Off on Iconic sports car: the Lightning GT

Just a little more patience and then we can finally enjoy one of the most iconic sports cars ever. Early next year, the Lightning GT is going into production after an extensive development programme. The car was created by British ‘The Lightning Car Company’, a proven team of car design and engineering experts.

The Lightning GT is not only a very charismatic sports car that would fit James Bond perfectly, it is also an example of advanced technology with excellent all round performance. This electric baby has a 400 hp plus twin motor unit and electronic differential for optimum traction and it will take you from 0-60mph within 4.5 seconds. The Lithium Titanate batteries can recharge in as little as 10 minutes and they will keep you going for over 150 miles.

Unfortunately, the Lightning GT production is limited to just 20 hand built cars, each lovingly crafted by their builders and uniquely specified by the lucky new owners. For now, I will have to settle for the fantasy, but who knows, maybe some day I will be able to share the experience with you!
