Cenex LCV 2014 Stand

"The Lightning Car Company are working closely with their drive-train partner, Magtec , as the GT undergoes more development and testing at the Sheffield base. The latest indications are that we have been understating the performance figures regarding acceleration and look forwards to releasing new figures in early April."

"The Lightning GT is at Magtec in Sheffield being upgraded to the full specification drive-train. This will enable advanced testing of the GT's stated performance intent of 0-60mph in under 4.5 seconds and an unrestricted top speed in excess of 175 mph. We will keep you informed as the engineering and testing reveal results which enable it to wear the 'supercar' tag with pride."

"The development work on the new GT continues at a pace. The up rated drive-train will be undergoing extensive testing this summer with much improved performance figures expected. The drive-train has been especially developed for us by MAGTEC of Sheffield.

Once in place we believe that the Lightning GT will probably be Britains most British car with the only overseas source components being the Lithium Titanate battery cells  which account for less than 15% of the cars component content. The company is 100% British owned and all other aspects are GB sourced."
