Another British specialist car maker has popped up with a new electrically driven sports car. With styling that looks like a Jaguar from the front, a more recent TVR from the rear and a Marcos in profile, the new Lightning GT is set to be powered by Altairnano's Nanosafe batteries. The all new chassis uses aluminum honey comb and composite in its construction.

A three model lineup is planned that includes a luxury model, a lightweight sport version that goes 0-60 in under four seconds and an extended range model that can run 250 miles on a charge. Lightning is using Hi-Pa Drive wheel motors from PML Flightlink with a combined output of 700hp. (FULL STORY)
