The Lightron[2] is a vehicle that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is Silver the Hedgehog's personal racing car, specially created by Dodon Pa for Silver to let him participate in his Grand Prix competition.

Description

Personalized specifically for Silver, the default Lightron possesses a futuristic design and sports a sleek sport car shape. It possesses a predominantly gray frame on the lower half and a light gray frame on the upper half. It features glowing cyan lining on the front, rear and sides. It also has a cyan windshield that is connected to a cyan line ending in a circle at the front (similar to the symbol on Silver's gloves). The wheels have cyan lines as well as circles on the casings, with each one having a gold center, like Silver’s gloves and boots cuffs. Also, behind the seat, there is a small generator of sorts encased in cyan glass.

Like other cars in Team Sonic Racing, its appearance can be customized with different paint jobs, performance parts and decals. Its horn can also be changed.
