Fun Find – Lightning Cars

Posted by Stephen On Thursday, February 10th, 2011

Employing the latest in light-weight construction and with a level of re-usability that would make Gordon Murray proud, Lightning Cars are offering plans for their micro city cars for the paltry sum of just 15 Pounds (about $24 USD) from their website.

Armed with only the most basic DIY skills, parts of a kitchen trash can, a drill motor and other low-priced items, you too can assemble on of these cars by following the step-by-step instructions and patterns described as being similar to “dress-making patterns”.

While Lightning Cars is not going be overtaking the Nano anytime soon, it is certainly going to be cheaper and more likely to be built in numbers than its other British Lightning namesake, and who can argue with a car that gets more 5-year-olds driving anyway?
