A innovative automotive icon for a country that wanted one of its own, Spanish supercar by the name of GTA Spano is the that could simply take on Lambos and Ferraris.
Under the pretty generic supercar body lies the heart of the beast: an 8.3-liter V10, purportedly sourced from the Dodge Viper, and tuned to give 780 hp. That’s said to be good sufficient to push the carbon, kevlar and titanium supercar to 100 km/h (62 mph) in a 2.9 seconds. The engine is mated to a option of seven-speed paddle-shifter, automatic or gated manual transmission, 19″ wheels coated in ultra-low-profile rubber grip the road at all fours, and the engine is even designed to burn straight alcohol if so desired.
