We have drooled over the pics of the sweet looking and fast Tesla Roadster her at I4U before. Now we can drool over a new electric sports car from the UK from Lightning Car company called the GT.

One glance at this car and it looks British; I see reminders of the Jag E type in the front fenders and headlights for sure. This is a great looking car and from the looks, you might expect a massive V8 or even a V12 to be the power plant.

What does power this ride is some Altairnano batteries and PML electric motors good for a whopping 700 hp. That is one amazing power figure from an electric car. The manufacturer claims a 0-60 time of less than four seconds on certain models and claim a range of 250 miles on models in extended range trim. No word on price, but with these specs if you have to ask. Via Autoblog
