Gizmag's Loz Blain gives the Lightning LS-218 a rave review (http://www.gizmag.com/lightning-ls218-review-ls-218/36470/).


Here is an excerpt from the current article:

To me, it's clear: electrics will offer undreamed-of performance levels, with superb efficiency, perfect throttle response and a degree of mechanical simplicity that's going to make life very tough for mechanics. The sheer adrenaline factor when you hit full throttle on the LS-218 is absolutely off the charts. I can't imagine the staunchest of petrolheads being immune to that kind of acceleration.

A video review is promised in a future article, but this article is packed with 32 pics.
