Spanish automaker brings its 900-horsepower supercar closer to production at the Geneva show.
Spanishsupercar-maker Spania GTA has taken the wraps off its updated 2013 GTA Spano atthe Geneva Motor Show, following the teaser images it dropped recently. Limited tojust 99 units, the heart of the refreshed Spano is an 8.4-liter superchargedV10 rated at 900 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of electronically-limited torque, channeled through a 7-speed sequential gearbox. With that much power, Spania says its supercar can sprint from 0-62 mph in 2.9 seconds and tops out at over 218mph.
Thanks to a monocoque made of titanium honeycomb, carbon fiber and Kevlar, Spania has cut 80 kg off the curb weight, with the trimmed supercar now tipping the scales at 1,350 kg. It rides on angular alloys, staggered 19/20 inches front/rear, fitted to a double wishbone suspension and AP Racing carbon-ceramic brakes, with an electronically-regulated wing to help keep it planted. The interior is trimmed in leather and carbon fiber, and comes with Recaro bucket seats, a rear camera feeding an LCD screen in place of a mirror, and an auto-tinting panoramic glass roof.
