Save Gas with This Electric Car

28 Jul

Ray: Those folks in England sure do know how to build great luxury sport cars. I mean, there’s Aston Martin, and ummmm… well I don’t really know. But perhaps the next great car to come from across the pond is the Lightning GT. This car runs on 100% electricity. But at an estimated $250,000, the engine could probably run on all the cash you’ve burned to buy it.

Each wheel has it’s on electric motor. It does 0-60mph in under 4 seconds but the manufacturers will cap the top speed at 130mph to preserve the range that the car can travel. There is already a 5 year waiting list for the car but you should expect to see these charging up in front of your local Wal-Mart by 2010.

    There’s a five year waiting list because they only will build these useless greenwashing symbols by hand,
    and only a few. Must make them appear scarce to drive up the price.
    For you folks who actually want to be able to gosomewhere, there is a plug-in hybrid from Fisker called the karma that will cost about $170K less and can go anyhwere you desire, which the impotent Lightning cannot do.
