It has been a few months since we first got our first glimpse of the Lightning GT from few officially released renderings of the model, now we can confirm the 700 horsepower electric sportscar will be have it full unveiling at this month's British Motor Show. Our first opportunity to see it in the flesh and of course see how the model compares with EV rivals such as the Fisker Karma and Tesla Roadster.

The 700bhp Lightning Gt is powered by four 120kw power Permanent Magnet brushless motors, which can be harged in as little as 10 minutes. The great advantages of the electric technology can be seen in the acceleration figures with a 0-60mph of 4 seconds, achievable because the electric motor is able to pass the full thrust of the torque to the wheels from standstill giving the model a great advantage over gas powered sportcars which require the vehicle to build up the rev count first.
