2013 GTA Spano


Spanish manufacturing firm GTA is finally ready to present a full production version of the Spano in 2013.

A limited edition of 99 GTA Spano models will be produced. The car accelerates from 0 to 100 Km/h in 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of over 350 km/h. Its chassis has been created by combining carbon fibres, titanium and Kevlar, which has become a reference in the automobile sector thanks to its great rigidity and its lightness. GTA Spano has its own V10 engine, which is longitudinally positioned at the rear with 820 HP and a torque of 960 nm. The gearbox is available in two options, all of which have seven gears: automatically sequential 7 speed with a paddle shift steering wheel or manual sequential.

This fast, good-looking, and rather cool super car is also rather practical with two boots! and lots of luxury amenities. It’s a very good car, but it sure will be massively expensive.

GTA press release:

Exterior Design

GTA Motor’s design department, directed by Sento Pallardó, has strived to create a unique automobile that resembles no other car in any way. In this way, a preliminary design has evolved until the present-day, which has succeeded in combining sportsmanship, elegance and exclusivity in a single concept. In other words, a very different style to that which currently exists on the international automobile scene.

One of GTA Spano’s main distinguishing features lies in its lateral view, where doors fit perfectly into air intakes which, apart from performing an aerodynamic function, refrigerate elements such as oil coolers, power-assisted steering and brakes, among others. Its design is original and unprecedented, which is yet another distinguishing mark of Concept. As in all true sportscars, the doors have not doorframes.

Access to the interior is accomplished by pressing the GTA logotype, rendering it a more elegant design without traditional handles.

Its frontal view affords it with a strong personality along with its two large lateral air intakes and its convex bonnet, completed with an aerodynamic streamlining zone to facilitate the air flow, thus providing it an athletic look.

At the rear, the design department has attempted to create the best way to channel the air that flows under the car. The resulting effect is a rear design with plenty of character, marked by the use of glass with its small openings that perform a refrigeration function for the engine. The wing fits perfectly into the design with under air channelling, while the two air intakes and the twin exhaust system emphasise the vehicle’s sport character. There is a rear barrel to channel air and to improve the aerodynamic load.

The wing mirrors have been designed as a framework with a carbon fibre finish and a wing-like arm, built in aeronautical mechanised aluminium.

The large glazed surface affords the vehicle a strong quality, another of its distinguishing features. The vehicle has a patented interior lighting and liquid crystal shading system, and the degree of light required inside may be regulated. Its completely novel sun visors are set into the glass and boast the same technology.

Its electrically-operated windows have been made according to state-of-the-art technology, in such a way that tracks are maintenance-free and work-problem free at various temperatures.

The wheels, 19″ at the front and 20″ at the rear, are characterised by their angular shape. They have been designed specifically and exclusively for this car model, with offers a continuousness effect with the chassis. There is a flat exterior part that perfoms an aerodynamic function, offering greater resistance and involving less weight.

Interior Design

The interior design has been achieved with high-quality materials such as leather and carbon fibre. There is ample space; indeed a person over 2 meters high can be comfortably seated inside. Its panoramic glass roof enhances the sense of spaciousness and also improves luminosity inside.

The dashboard has been designed to transmit the car’s values; although it has a sporting look, it is also elegant to give an impression of luxury and comfort.

The prevalent feature of the instrument panel is an LCD screen, which can be personalised according to the customer’s requirements and provides the driver with all the necessary information. It includes every button required to adjust the high front bodywork, the rear wing and also the glass roof opacity system.

The steering wheel is made out of carbon fibre and leather, another typical sporting feature of this vehicle. A joystick is located behind the steering wheel to operate lights, wipers and indicators.

Its Recaro seats, made totally out of leather, are another feature of its sport design and are perfectly held. They display the brand’s anagrams, thus affording the vehicle more exclusivity. The seats also have an electrical adjustment system with heating and refrigeration.

One of GTA Spano’s innovations is that there is no central rear-view mirror; instead there is a rear camera that projects onto the LCD screen and is aptly located on the dashboard. It also has a wide-angle camera to facilitate parking manoeuvres which automatically connects after activating the rear gear. Interior lights also use LED technology.

The dashboard has a large state-of-the-art 7″ LCD screen with several functions such as navigation, radio with MP3 CD, an iPod port and Bluetooth for mobile phones.

GTA has two boots; a 100-litre front one and a 200-litre rear one; which are not inconsiderable for a vehicle of such characteristics. The front boot has a reverse opening system to make the task of loading luggage easier.

There are also two glove compartments, one located in the central compartment and the other on the front passenger’s side. It is possible to refrigerate them and they also include a drinks holder.

GTA Spano has also incorporated practical compartments into both doors. The interior colour range varies according to the customer’s preferences.
