GTA Spano 1 at GTA Spano Finally Coming

GTA Spano first popped up on the radar back in 2009, poised to be the world’s first proper Spanish supercar. Then it went quiet for a few years, and now it’s back promising a limited produciton run of 99 units, and a 2013 launch. They delivered the news at this year’s Geneva Motor Show where they unveiled the final produciton version, which is no different than the 2009 concept.

It’s a good thing the Spano hasn’t changed, because the initial specs were perfect. The car’s got an 8.3 liter V10 engine with no efficiency system nonsense fitted to it. Instead, it has a supercharger, and that means  it makes 820hp and 960Nm of torque.

Because the Spano is made from a blend of carbon Kevlar and titanium bits, it weighs only 1350 kg. So it’s fast, properly fast. 0 to 100 km/h in this Spanish supercar takes 2.9 seconds and flat-out it’ll do 350+ km/h.

The power is transmitted to the rear wheels via a seven-speed sequential gearbox. The only concern is the handling. Sure, the Spano has all the fancy suspension geometry every modern super car has, and it’s got good brakes, active aerodynamics and electronic controlling systems, but you have to get it down to the track to see id it works.

One brilliant thing about the Spano is the attention to the practicality. The car has ride height adjustment to make it easy going over the speed bumps, it’s got loads of equipments and amenities, and it’s even got two boots; a 100-litre front one and a 200-litre rear one. Fantastic!

There’s no word on the pricing yet, but it takes no genius to say it’s gonna be bloody expensive.
