Every once in a long while the dream of creating a dream car comes to life. Such is the case with the GTA Spano, a 230mph-capable supercar. Powered by a twin-turbo, intercooled and slightly bored out Viper V10, it has the guts to get the job done and the form to not only catch the eye, but convert air into grip-amplifying downforce. Spanish automaker Spania GTA has built the GTA Spano from the most rigid materials on Earth, and the way it responds to the contours of the road or the lack thereof is entirely unique. What else would you expect from a company that built something out of pure passion for driving?
The second-generation GTA Spano sports an updated exterior, now this time using butterfly doors and a new active rear wing that deploys at speeds above 60 mph (97 km/h) and folds up to improve braking performance if the brakes are applied.
Mounted in the middle of the car behind the passenger compartment is a bored out variant of the Dodge Viper's V10 engine, displacing 8.0L (7,990 cc), producing 912 hp (680 kW) and 900 ft·lb (1220 N·m), and equipped with twin-turbochargers and an intercooler. A seven-speed CIMA sequential transmission is used to send power to the rear wheels.
With its high-power engine, the second-generation Spano is capable of acceleration from 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 2.9 seconds and a top speed exceeding 230 mph (370 km/h), which is always exceeded in each of the Spano's Forza appearance.
