Iceni Grand Tourer
Iceni Grand Tourer is the name of a new British sports car announced for debut at the 2012 Salon Prive.
It’s rather a weird car. But like most weird things it’s also very interesting. With a top speed of nearly 200mph and a 0-60mph sprint in just 3.7 seconds, the Iceni is built to order in Norfolk and priced from £75,000. A mid-front mounted 6.6-litre turbo-diesel is used to capitalize on the Torque Multiplication technology, capable of running on mineral diesel, bio diesel, palm oil and linseed oil, it delivers 430bhp and a staggering 950lbs ft of torque at under 3250rpm. An option to upgrade to 660bhp is also available, delivering 1050lbs ft of torque.
The way this car look is the most interesting part of all though. It’s retro, but kinda modern and cool. The recipe for this car and the ingredients are stacking up for something really great. We’re looking forward to hear more about it.
