The Brits have come up with a Jaguar look-a-like with motor-in-the-wheel (4 wheel) drive, breakthrough NanoSafe battery that can go 250 miles (400 km) between charges and takes just 10 minutes to recharge. The sub 4 second 0 to 60, 700 brake horse power supercar that will cost less to run than an average fossil fuel burning sedan, will likely cost at least $300,000.

Implications - This impressive car is called The Lightning and was created by the Lightning Car Company. The company has made 700 of these eco-friendly cars that are one of the first of their kind. The technology used in the car is set to be used by Formula One as of 2008, which is when the Kinetic Energy Recovery Systems becomes mandatory.
