The Lightning electric car from EnviroTech that you see here certainly looks very different from all those sleek looking, modern sports cars and exotics. No sir, this one looks as though it was hauled straight off from the middle of the previous century, back in the days when nuclear power was still in its infancy (and demonstrated on two locations in Japan), and vehicles did not need to resemble a space age product. Well, do not be fooled by looks, and as mom always said, never judge a book by its cover. This electric car will run on a 156V DC electric racing motor that will ensure it is capable of surpassing the 100 mph speed mark, not to mention having a sub-5 second time for 0 to 60 mph performance.
All 13 12V Delco deep cycle batteries located right under the hood are good for a mere 40 miles before you need to send it off to the nearest power outlet for some juicing up session. I guess there should be enough power on a full charge to get you to town during Saturday night, boogie around and whisk your newly met princess back home before retiring at your place, all without having to pollute the environment. It will cost around $28,000 a pop to custom build your own Lightning electric car, and for DIY fans, you can actually purchase individual components and get started.
