Hi there! I am a freelance writer who lives and breaths content on a daily basis. I consider myself to be an easy going writer. An old soul trapped in a modern world. Got passion for cars and technology. I enjoy dinner on the beach with glass of wine.

Fossil fuel remains the most convenient means to power the world. This is also the most convenient option to operate the automotive industry. Over the years, car owners hesitate to patronize battery-operated GT cars since petrol has been conveniently available. Despite the high prices, you can go anywhere and have a gallon or two of gas or diesel. But because of the fast-changing economy coupled with environmental concerns, there are battery-operated GT cars being developed.

The Lightning GT has one of the most advanced designs in car manufacturing today. Launched to the public in the 2008 London Motor Show, it showcased green technology that can help solve emission concerns. Lightning GT was supposed to be available by 2009. But because of setbacks like production concerns, the company decided to push the release a few years later. According to reports, Lightning GT is expected to grace the market by 2013.

Lightning Car Company

Lightning Car Company is a British car developer for high-end environmentally friendly GT cars. When most GT cars gained notoriety for high gasoline consumption, Lightning Car Company was among the few players that decided to stick with green technology. Built-in 2007, they showcased superb engineering by building their first car, the Lightning GT.

What the public did not know is that most of the ideas for the Lightning GT came from Ronart Cars. Ronart Cars are responsible for the internal combustion concept used on the Lightning GT. The power of the Lightning GT comes from lithium titanate batteries.  Due to the lack of financial capability of the company to mass-produce the Lightning GT, there will only be 20 units in the first year. Fortunately, since the company pushed the release of the Lightning GT to 2013, it was being reported that 50 units are actually planned to be delivered that same year.

Advanced Design

The Lightning GT is designed to have a rear-mounted motor. This will drive through the gearboxes using its electronic torque control system. Incorporating the powertrain system of a top-notch German company, the peak power output reaches 300 kilowatts, creating 3,300 NM on the wheels.

In terms of performance, the top speed of the Lightning GT can reach 200 kilometers per hour. As for its acceleration, it can propel from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in just five seconds. In fact, the top speed for the Lightning GT is just a recommendation from the manufacturer because of its source of energy. Lightning GT is not only known for its groundbreaking electric technology but also for its modern body design.

Incorporating the aerodynamic technology, car enthusiasts can expect the electric car to generate enough downforce to accommodate superb handling, especially at high speed. The Body was also made of aluminum material to allow the engine to maximize its power.

The Lightning GT still has a long way to go. When you need to charge a battery for 2.5 hours, only to be used for 240 kilometers, petrol remains a good option. On the bright side, not a single critic from the GT car community can deny the strides made by Lightning Car Company in creating an environmentally friendly GT car.
