Are you sure the car had no batterie installed as a car usually does? Maybe the idea was to hang the car on the wire. When it falls the wire was failing. Its useless to say it will still conduct under those circumstances. So car lights on was maybe just an effect.

But I maybe wrong.

Wouldn't that need two wires, though - one for the positives and one for the negatives?

It was a bundle of wires so one will have been the negative!

This may be what you're looking for, it's a metallized type of Kevlar, not sure how invisible it is though:

Possibly conductive carbon nanotube fibre.

I am not sure what you are after is commercially available just yet.
