Following a couple of previews, Spanish super car maker GTA Motors finally took the wraps off its latest version of the Spano at the Geneva Motor Show. Little has changed in terms of styling, but technically the car is now capable of keeping up the game with the likes of the LaFerrari and LaMcLaren.
The reason for that is a revised 8.4 liter V10 engine that can trace its roots back to the old Viper, supercharged up to 900 horsepower and 1000Nm of torque (limited).
The power is channeled through a seven-speed sequential gearbox to the rear wheels, enabling a 0 to 100 km/h in under 3 seconds and a top speed of 350 km/h or 217 mph. That is on the par with the new Ferrari and McLaren hyper cars.
The Spano boasts a carbon fiber body that weighs only 1,350 kg which is fantastic for a car of this type. The chassis benefits from double wishbone suspension with self=adjusting shock absorbers, as well as 19-inch wheels at the front and 20-inch out back, with AP Racing braking system.
Production is limited to just 99 units.
