Lightning Car Company based in the UK has created an all-electric sports car, called the GT. The new supercar melds the front end of an E-Type Jaguar, the profile of a Marcos, and the back end of a TVR. Under the skin sits the same Altairnano batteries that power the Phoenix SUT and gives the engine a power of 640-hp. The Lightning GT, however, boasts up to 700 bhp. Three models are expected to be offered including a luxury version, a lightweight sports version that can reach 62 mph in less than 4 seconds and an extended range model that can go the distance, as long as that’s within 250 miles. The Lightning GT is expected to be available in 2008, though orders are being taken now. Competitor for the Tesla Roadster? Future will bring the truth.
