Sunbeam Tiger LSR Tribute news — Easy Tiger - 2009
We like mad, futuristic concepts. Mad, futuristic concepts that look a bit like a hot-rodded KTM X-Bows. Mad, futuristic concepts that make absurdly ambitious claims about technology and performance.
So we very much like the Sunbeam Tiger LSR Tribute, a mad, futuristic concept from British designer Ryan Skelley. It’s named after the inter-war race car that set a new land speed record of 145mph back in 1925, and it’s a vision of what a road-going roadster might look like in 2025.
So, naturally, it’s electric. Powered by lithium titanate batteries, to be precise, and capable of hitting 60mph in 2.3 seconds and a top speed of 160 while - ready for this? - managing a range of 800 miles. Hmm.
Let’s not be sceptical. Who knows what advances in battery technology might take place over the next 16 years? After all, who in 1993 could have predicted the rise of, er, the mighty G-Wiz?
