Su­per­car to be un­veiled

Warwickshire Telegraph - - NEWS IN BRIEF -

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.”
