The Beautiful Lightning GT – Going To Monaco
Possibly the best looking electric car ever conceived, the Lightning GT, is on it’s way to Monte Carlo in the hopes of impressing uber wealthy car aficionados. The stunning E-Type inspired design has been widely acclaimed by the motoring world and the battery technology the car is reported to use is quite revolutionary, how does a 10 minute recharge sound?
The Lightning Car Company is planning to start production early next year and is expecting to produce 250 cars per year. The car has twin, rear mounted electric motors producing 201hp each and as much as 3,300Nm of torque at the wheels. 0-60mpg takes just 5 seconds and the Lightning GT has a claimed top speed of 120mph.
The car can be recharged in 10 minutes from a dedicated charger, or in about 5 hours from a home-based charging system, a range of 150 miles is claimed and there are plans for a 225 mile range extended battery pack.
The car will be in Monte Carlo from the 2nd to the 4th of March if you’re in the area and want to take a look in person.
