800hp Spanish Supercar


It seems that it’s not just the Brits who like to tempt us with supercar concepts that seem ever so slightly over-ambitious.

This time it is the turn of the Spanish, in particular GTA Motor, who have unveiled plans for a brand new supercar.

This 800hp monster will be completely handbuilt and the company is planning to sell 98 units this year.

As the car won’t hit the showrooms until 2009, we’re guessing this means GTA Motor want to secure that many orders this year.

It is powered by a Pontiac V10 and the company estimates it will be good for 211mph.

It will have a six-speed gearbox and ceramic brakes and this year GTA hopes to produce a 1:1 finished prototype.

    Sorry to sound cynical, however we have been here before countless times...Marco's, TVR, Ascari, Noble etc have appeared and then disappeared and it is not as if the Spanish are renowned for building cars (Seat excepted) esp in this sector of the marketplace. Plus will the car be homologated for the world as I think that the UK is unique in SVA regs.
    Italy have an SVA type arrangement.

    .
    I wish it did !!!!!, but Italy doesn't have an SVA system, and unfortunately we have inept bureucrats running our system.

    You would have to go through Low type Approval in Italy, and that is very expensive.......

    The chap I bought me PGo from also imports a little MGTD replica from Malaysia.

    He SVAs the cars here as the volumes. at the moment do not justify the expense of Low Volume type approval and until RR rocked up with rear hinged door everyone at VOSA were saying that you could not get any type approval for suicide doors. ( No that RR have it, it seems to be up for reviewrolleyes)

    '....The Spanish dont know sod all about cars,.....'

    ??
    have you not heard of Hispano-Suiza / Pegaso ?
    ok, were from a previous era but even so....
    do a web search and then compare them to the cars that were being built here at the same time
    The engines were designed by a very talented spanish engineer, and the bodies by Touring Superleggera.
