Ronart Lightning car

You may remember Richard Hammond being smitten by a 1950s Grand Prix racer-alike on the programme a while back.

Well, the same people who built that Vanwall replica are also responsible for this: the Ronart Lightning.

Built around a tubular spaceframe, the Lightning has a composite body to keep weight down, with power coming from a Ford Mustang 4.6-litre V8.

This unit produces 300bhp in standard trim, but Ronart also offers upgrades to 440bhp.

There are 18in alloy wheels to transmit the power, brakes from AP Racing and suspension sorted by renowned specialists Harvey Bailey Engineering.

In standard tune, the rear-wheel-drive Lightning is reckoned to be good for 0-60mph in 5.0 seconds and 160mph.

As well as performance, the Lightning serves up a leather 'n' luxury interior for two people and a removable targa roof panel.

Prices for this particular flash of Lightning start at £50,000.
