First all-electric sports car


Presented at British Int'l Motor Show, it is to be the first all-electric sports car. Lightning GT, the car with a carbon-fibre and aluminium chassis, gets its power from a bank of batteries that can be 'quick-charged' in just 10 minutes for a range of between 180 and 200 miles. Due to be delivered in 2010, there is some underlying concept behind Lightning design, and that is:" if you really want motorists to switch to green, electric motoring, you have to make it exciting." But guess what their major hurdle: the car is too quiet!. So they are about to add some noise to the lightning, maybe some sound of thunder, just to keep people away from it!

It looks like BMW Gina Light. Are all future cars going to be semi-Gina?! :d
