Home of the Lightning Roadster
The Lightning Roadster chassis and bodies are designed and manufactured by the World’s Best Company, Inc. The Lightning project was conceived in 2008 to offer hot rodders a car styled similar to sprint and Indy race cars of the 40’s and 50’s, with a passenger seat. Always a favorite at the car shows and vintage race events. The Lightning gives the driver the feel of a vintage open-air race car with modern performance features like rack and pinion steering, and four wheel disc brakes. At home on the race track, the Lightning Electric car has run successful tests on the race courses at Road America in Elkhart Lake, WI, and ran just over 100 mph at the Brainerd International Speedway on Brainerd, MN. Deceptively practical, the rear cargo area of the Lightning is big enough for your car show supplies, the golf clubs, or a weeks worth of groceries. The Lightning is available as a complete car, or body and chassis components for builders.
The Lightning chassis features 4-wheel disc brakes, independent front and rear suspension with cantilevered coil over shocks and rack and pinion steering in the front, and an independent rear axle with coil over shocks. The Lightning Electric car is powered by 13-12 volt lead acid deep cycle batteries, a 1000 amp DC controller, and a 13″ DC electric motor designed for electric car racing. Our newly completed “Thunder” Roadster features a 1940 Ford V8 60 flathead, and manual 5-speed transmission.
