The makers of the electric Lightning GT sports car are planning three more models.
The £120,000 Lightning GT is was shown at the 2008 London motor show as a concept car and is scheduled to go into production next year.
It is powered by four 120Kw electric motors, with new 36Kw ‘NanoSafe’ batteries providing the energy. The combination is said to give the GT more than 700bhp.
Lightning’s own figures show that the GT is capable of reaching 60mph in just 4.0sec, though top speed is limited to 130mph.
Ian Sanderson, Chairman of the Lightning Car Company, said: "The Lightning GT should be ready for sale in spring 2010. We have deposits, and we're pushing ahead with our plans.
"It's our intention that it is the first of a number of models. A limo-sized model is planned, as we think a high-end chauffer-driven car with electric power would work well for executives travelling around cities.
