| World debut | 2008 British International Motor Show | Lightning GT|
Electric dreams or a jolt of reality, the Lightning GT certainly caused a stir at the British International Motor Show
. Not least because it looks sensational, rivalling Aston Martin and Jaguar for svelte good looks. It's the Lightning GT's powertrain that's its real stand-out feature, it being electric, with four wheel-mounted motors giving it a claimed 700bhp. What's more, the nano-technology batteries are claimed to be super-fast to recharge, and if you're worried that an electric GT doesn't sound right you can have your drive accompanied by the engine noise of your choice via a sound module. Electric dreams? Perhaps, but sweet ones.
