The GTA Spano was presented for the first time in full production specification at the Geneva Motor Show last week.
The Spanish supercar is powered by a supercharged 8.3-litre V10 that produces 611 kW and 960 Nm – even more power than the new Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. The mid-engined, rear-wheel drive supercar sends its power is transferred to the road via a 7-speed sequential gearbox. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h takes 2.9 seconds and the Spano has a top speed of over 350 km/h. Stopping the car are 380 mm brake discs and calipers supplied by AP Racing.
The chassis is a combination of carbon fibre, titanium and Kevlar, which gives it a feather light kerb weight of just 1 350 kg. The bare monocoque weights just 56 kg, almost 20 kg less than a Lotus Elise’s aluminium unit.
Other hi-tech equipment apart from the chassis and drivetrain, is a glass roof with built-in lighting and the ability to be turned opaque at the touch of a button. Aerodynamics and ride height can also be adjusted from inside the car and the LCD screen doubles as a rear-view mirror.
Just 99 of the Spanish supercars will be made, each of them to order and with a price that will no doubt make the price of Clifton beach house reasonable.
