New Spania GTA Spano teased
Currently, the Spania GTA Spano kicks out a trifling 780hp from its 8.3-litre Viper-sourced V10 - 820hp when it’s running on bio-ethanol. And at 1350kg, that means it’ll do 0-62mph in 2.9 seconds.
Which is quite quick. Quicker than a Ferrari Enzo and a McLaren F1 and a Koenigsegg Agera. But not quick enough for the rare-groove Spanish manufacturer - it’s decided that power needs to increase to 900hp. Nine HUNDRED.
We don’t have anything else to tell you about it just yet (Spania GTA’s saving all the numbery stuff for the Geneva motor show), but there’s a good chance it’ll retain all the exciting bits its predecessor had. Stuff like the carbon fibre body, Kevlar, titanium, and carbon monocoque, multi-adjustable suspension, AP ceramic brakes, and clever panoramic roof that darkens or lightens at the flick of a switch.
There’s also a good chance it’ll cost more than the current £475k offering…
Reckon it’ll be worth the money, TopGear.commers?
