Fittingly named ‘The Bolt’ is a British manufactured supercar, constructed predominantly to smash the land speed record that currently stands at 300mph.
The vehicle was built by Bolton-based Keating Supercars, seeking to reach 340mph in Ras al Khaimah in the United Arab Emirates next week.
This record, if successful, will mark the breaking of the world speed record for a production car and Limo Broker for one could not be happier!
The Bolt has generated great intrigue worldwide, looking to go on sale to the public as of next year.
Chief executive officer Tony Keating is a graduate from the University of Bolton and will be donating the first off the production line to the university’s Centre for Advanced Performance Engineering (CAPE). The university will be joining the Bolton car enthusiasts next week in their attempt to make history. With such intrigue surrounding their invention this is a greatly admirable activity.
University of Bolton vice- chancellor, Professor George Holmes said: “We’re very excited to be taking CAPE to the exhibition that brings the world of motorsport together — fans and professionals alike love this show. What better place to showcase CAPE — we are the first to have a professional Le Mans LMP2 series racing team based within a university centre.
“Our partnership of first-class on campus learning with the best in practical motorsport experience will give our graduates the competitive edge in securing careers.”
So, what do you think, will The Bolt take the title?
