Supercar to be unveiled
AN ELECTRIC powered supercar which has been designed by a former Coventry University student will be unveiled this weekend.
The new Lightning GT showcar is set to appear at Coventry’s three-day Motofest – which started last night.
The brainchild of former student Daniel Durrant, the car will take pride of place in the Broadgate static display area today.
The vehicle, which runs on lithium titanate batteries, will also be part produced in Coventry at ADV Manufacturing – which secured the contract to build Nissan’s new taxi for London.
Iain Sanderson, CEO of The Lightning Car Company, said: “We are delighted to bring the Lightning GT showcar to the Coventry Motofest 2014 event.
“With its Coventry connections, from Daniel Durrant’s design to plans for ADV Manufacturing to work on production elements of the car in the future, it’s great to be able to showcase the Lightning GT in the city.
“It will give visitors the chance to see up close the next generation of electric supercar and we look forward to sharing the Lightning GT experience with those attending the Motorfest event.”
