With just enough of an interior to keep you on the paved bits, the Spartan V still shouldn't have any problem going fast, though, as the video below proves. There will be just 300 made, and the price quoted in Spartan's press release below is $95,000 – we'll assume that US dollars. The price in Australia is $79,000 AUD (about $82,000 US), so you can save yourself a few large if you already have a second home Down Under.
Spartan, the Australian-made supercar, redefines the rules of lightweight performance. At just
500kg, the carbon fibre, alloy and minimalist two-seater packs a Honda 2.0-litre four-cylinder
designed purely to tear up the track.
Designed and developed in Sydney, the Spartan is a low volume sports car designed for the
track car enthusiast. It runs a four-cylinder engine taken from an Integra Type-R squeezing out
an impressive 186kW (250hp), with a supercharged option 300kW (400hp).
With lightweight shell bucket seats, essential-only interior and CAD suspension and braking
components, the Spartan has blistering performance. But it's the track that the Spartan is
designed for and with its Yokohama R-spec track tyres and featherweight, the Spartan is
supremely agile and nimble through the turns, reinforcing the maxim of less weight is always
better than more power.
Selling for around $95,000, video and more information on the Spartan is available from
