Aspid – a small Spanish firm specializing in sports cars – released computer generated images of their new product called the GT-21 Invictus. This one is a far cry from their normal open-wheeled products. It looks splendid with a two-door body, a long bonnet and a super aggressive face. And it’s got big muscle under the bonnet to match the styling.
The Invictus is powered, or will be powered if they get around making it, by a BMW 4.4 liter V8 engine developing 450hp and 440 Nm of torque. The performance figures they claim are very bold. 0 to 100 km/h is said to take under 3 seconds, and the top speed will be over 300 km/h. The car will also be able to generate 1.6 g.
The power is delivered to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch or a six-speed manual. The car rides on 19-inch wheels at front and 20-inch at the back, and has configurable ABS and ESP system. The Invictus uses push-rod suspension with aluminum double wishbones.
The GT-21 has a lightweight body that only weighs 990 kg. It is also fairly practical for a sports coupe, with a boot capacity of 270 liters. Safety is provided by an integrated roll cage and an adaptive driver’s airbag.
They are really good in Spain at dreaming up hot cars (remember the GTA Spano?). But it’s making them they’re not really good at.
