700hp Lightning GT Electric Car Revealed

Power is provided by four 120 kW motors, which create over 700 horsepower. That kind of power combined with a lightweight body built from carbon fiber and Kevlar should allow the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4 seconds.

The Lightning Car Company has pulled the wraps off their new Lightning GT. Designed to incorporate the latest advancements in battery and motor technology, the car runs solely on electricity.

With more than 700 horsepower and a lightweight body built from carbon fiber and Kevlar, the car can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4 seconds. NanoSafe battery packs provide 36 kW of power, while regenerative braking helps maximize the GT’s range. The vehicle comes with a home charging unit with internal safety features and a mobile charger is offered.

Standard equipment includes anti-lock brakes, traction control, central locking, alarm and immobilizer, electric windows, and leather/alcantara sports seats. Owners can also order their car with air conditioning and a navigation system.

Construction of a prototype is currently underway and is scheduled to be completed later this year. The company is accepting pre-orders for a £15,000 deposit.
