GTA Motor reveals the new Spano, a Viper-powered Spanish supercar that also runs on ethanol

Spain is getting used to the world of supercars. After it has presented the a.d. Tramontana, the country now counts on the race team GTA Motor to present the new Spano, a car that promises a fantastic performance, beside the conservative, but gorgeous design.

The new GTA Spano is 4.65 m long, 1.98 m wide, 1.20 m tall and has a wheelbase of 2.80 m. Although it is only a two seater, the large wheelbase is also due to the big engine the carbon fibre structure has to hold, nothing less than the 8.3-litre V10 that powers the Dodge Viper. The engine is installed behind the seats and is exposed by a translucid hood. As if it was not enough, the super engine is supercharged in order to produce 780 bhp at 6,300 rpm. With that, the car, which weighs only 1,350 kg, reaches a top speed beyond 350 km/h and sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.9 s.

At a cost of 600,000 euros each, GTA Spano will have only 99 units produced. But this is not the most extraordinary thing about this car. Optionally it will be able to run solely on ethanol, what increases maximum power to 840 bhp at 6,250 rpm. Perfomance numbers have not been disclosed, but expect them to be better than on the petrol version of the car.
